    Default What the fuck happened?! (READ ME FIRST!!!)

    The short story is this:

    The hard drive on the server that housed the FOBL site failed yesterday (12-12-02). Everything was wiped out.

    Buddy had a local backup of the site files, so everything is okay on that front. The forum is another story. The host has sent the hard drive out in an attempt at data recovery, but at this point, the best-case scenario is this:

    I have a backup of all the forum data, but a) it is a few months old, and b) it is on my computer which is in storage. I'm not sure when I'll be able to access it and restore from it. So for now, this is the plan...

    We will use this forum in the interim. It's set up pretty basic at the moment, but I will make adjustments as they are needed. The reason we're using this, and NOT another vB installation is as follows: If we were using vB now and went to restore the backup at some point down the road, the two databases could not be merged. By using a different forum now, we can later restore the backup, and then import whatever posts we accumulate here into the vB installation. Then, we can (eventually) upgrade the whole database to vB3.

    In the meantime, please try to make yourselves feel at home here. If there's something I need to change/add, let me know and I'll try to do it. Reclaiming avatars and smileys will be an ongoing process--it will take time. [b:17b4ed054b]Please register for these forums using the same user name you had on the old forum.[/b:17b4ed054b] Doing so will make merging the two forums easier down the road.

    Sorry for all the hassles. Please let me know if there's anything I can do.
