Database mishap - fixed

Recommended Posts

Dearest Members and Visitors of the Fountain Pen Nuthouse,

 

Today, around 10 am EDT, 3 pm GMT, we encountered a database problem, caused by a fix gone awry, and had to restore a slightly older backup.

 

Earlier today we applied a fix to a bunch of annoyances, but one of those was not entirely correct, and it started deleting posts and members. Fortunately we made a back-up prior to doing these fixes, and we have now restored that back-up, iand applied all fixes again except the problem one.

 

We may have lost a few posts and data as a result, as there was a two hour lag between back-up and noticing something was going wrong.

Basically, posts and replies between 13:54 CEST / 12:54 GMT / 07:54 EDT  and approximately 16:06 CEST / 15:06 GMT / 10:06 EDT have been lost because of this. 

Our sincerest apologies for that. Sometimes that happens when necessary work is done.

 

Anyway, in case you do find there are some problems, please let us know in the Community Feedback forum, to which you have access as a registered, signed-in member.

 

Thank you very much in advance!

 

Warm regards,

on behalf of The FPN Moderator and Admin Team,

Wim

 

P.S.: Corrected the times involved, it actually happened earlier.

Thanks, Wim! :)  (Been there, done that, and I know it can be a bit nerve wracking.  Thanks for the hard work.)

Thank you, Liz.

 

Very nerve-wrecking indeed.

 

I managed to use the wrong time in my messages, I just fixed that :).

 

Warm regards, Wim

Thanks for your continuing stewardship of this forum on behalf of the community. The technology is beyond me, but I am sure it is complicated and offers lots of challenges to keep in working order!

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.

      Was that the end of the Laboratory? Somehow the exactitude created a fully destructive device, as always!
