Exclamation FYI - A day's posts lost

I just wanted to give everyone a head's up that we lost around a day's worth of posts from earlier today and late yesterday. We had a drive go bad on our server, but luckily had a forum backup from not too long ago and were able to restore from that.

If you can figure out what (if any) posts of yours went missing, feel free to repost!

Just noticed this after having just posted a new thread in the The Information Desk and Suggestion Box forum about the missing posts.

But I tried just once more and there it was!!!

What's a couple of posts and a baaaad limerick when we think of what might have been?

Thanks for the explanation, Cheryl. We all know stuff happens. I'm glad you got it fixed so quickly.

I completely rewrote it and it's up now.

As I said, it's one of the hard lessons

Don't think any of my posts were lost. Hope that won't happen again for a while!
