Hey, I don't really care about losing a few posts now, if it means there will continue to be a great forum for me to post on in the future!

Same - though I am struggling to recreate my thought processes and remember if anything useful I posted was lost or it was just my usual jumble of inanities :)

I don't have to worry about that, all I post is inanities. ahdn_ringo_09

There was once another Beatles forum that was really good which disappeared off the face of the internet. One day it was there, the next - nothing. Never came back or was seen again. Sad times.

Well, you are helping to make this forum top-notch. Glad Joe had the light on so you could be attracted to the site like a moth to a flame...or a mmm to a curly wurly.

What is the ruling here over posting thousands of pics of very cute animals? That puppy is so darn loveable, how could anyone remain mad at it after that look?heart

You're allowed 200 cute animal pictures before you have to send everyone a curly-wurly, mmm!

I don't do enough cute animal pictures, so here are some From Me To You!

Now, enough cute animals! We want weird things happening on the forum here! Not like there haven't been a few of those!

As everybody can see, the site has been switched back to its previous server. This has meant, unfortunately, the unavoidable loss of everything after a certain time on 10 December. Three days are gone and there was nothing we could do. I hope you'll accept our apologies. Those looking at the site in the past 24 hours or so will understand bad things were happening, and Joe was doing all he could to keep it up. We are really sorry about this, and any important information you posted, please repost. Sorry about lost discussions!

For posterity's sake I'll add this post. ^^This is mja's quote from post 134 up thread. I didn't copy and paste the conversation that happened right before that (which was lost in the roll back), but I remember a bit of how it went.

On Friday morning (well it was morning for me in CST USA) December 12th, mja and I were telling Joe that some of the information pages from the site (albums, songs, discography, gallery, etc.) weren't loading fully. mja described what we both were seeing on the screen. The BB banner and the title of the page would come up, and then the page would quit loading.

That was the point when Joe decided to go back to the retro pages and wait for Pothi's magic touch to help chase out the blue-meanie that had invaded our happy happy spot on the web.

Right, yeah, we rolled back, but you knew all about that. Sorry I wasn't really around to explain - I had a crazy week last week. I've been trying to set up a big film shoot for my day job, dealing with some of the server issues here, I bought a house on Friday, and as I was going to pick up the keys some bastard drove into the back of my car, then sped off before I got their details. Fortunately I'm OK, the car will survive, I now have a lovely new house, the shoot is going as planned, and the site is in some sort of working order again! It's been a bit stressful.

Please don't spoil my day; I'm miles away

I'm glad to hear you're okay, Joe, and you're settling in.

I wonder what happened to a Ringo topic -- about his special style of drumming.  I just saw it 10 minutes ago, and began to reply to it, but then my computer starting freezing up into blue whirligigs and I decided I didn't want to wait another 17 minutes just to post a bloody comment, so I closed my browser, re-opened, and came back, and now I can't find that Topic.  I looked high and low (starting with the Ringo section, of course), and can't find hide nor hair of it...

Don't know if it helps with troubleshooting - but performance for me has been REALLY dire over the last 30 minutes or so.

Fine for me. 

Maybe its a dirty ploy to make you hand over the iTunes Bootleg tracks.a-hard-days-night-george-10

Ha - could be.  For about an hour when they were unavailable my mailbox was jammed with people offering, begging, threatening ...

The site was also down for 8 hours or so?  Been getting withdrawal symptoms ...

Sorry about that, folks! Have no idea what happened there, and am not going to even hazard a guess, other than there was an "Error establishing a database connection"!
