Site issues - apologies

Hi all,

The site was down for a while, and unfortunately it turns out our backups also failed.

As a result we lost data since November!

We don't know what caused the issue, which is also more worrying as it's harder to mitigate.

It could be that we are running on older systems due to vBulletin itself being very old. I may need to investigate options for the site in due course such as migration to a new system.

Re: Site issues - apologies

Thanks for the info.. Glad to see you back.

I was gone for a long time due to being busier than a one-armed paper hanger. My one day off always seems to go by in a flash. Can't even remember when I last watched my B5 & Crusade DVDs, , but I've been keeping the b5tv main page open on my phone and have been checking in every day since September 2019.

Probably lost at least three months of posts.

A time machine would come in very handy right about now!

I could've used a time machine this morning. They called me out for work at 00:36 ET to be at a place an hour away at 00:30 ET, AND it had snowed, the roads were bad, and at least two out of the four sensors at the red lights out of town (to allow me to make a left onto the highway), WEREN'T WORKING.

It would definitely reach "Biblical Proportions".

I would guess that a lot of what we lost was the crazy babble in my forum
