I was not able to get into the archive site for the past week or so. Now pathsoflegend.com points to Code Monkey. Is the old site gone?

I really miss the old site. As nice as this one is  Cry

Thanks for all the hard work to keep the site alive.

I will be making a news item on this as soon as I hear from Todd, it seems the server has lost all data in it, including our old site, but we do have a abackup, so it will not mean the end of our old site, just that it can take sometime to get it up and running again for all of us to get to it.

You guys should have told me that you couldn't get to th PoL site the time it happened though, we could have worked on this before, or at least have this on queue for the time it became an issue. As a side note, we should be more than happy to have made the migartion wehen we did, else we would have no place to go and possibly only a very old DB backup to use.

Not to say that putting the new forums up at this moment would just not happen, Todd is working like crazy and couldn't afford the work we put into this, so give some praises to Izrador, for he warned us ahead of time! Grin

We can put the old forums up here, I just don't remember what procedures Todd said he'd have to do first. Worst case I put it up on my site, since I believe I have a copy of the db. Todd may have the filesystem though, so unless he does I have no way of restoring anything but the raw text of the forums.

I have just sent you a mail on the issue, hopefully we can get it sorted, but we can try to see if it is possible at all there, before we make it public. Please check your mail Wink

Also, I posted the sad news and noticed that our frontpage is displaying news items in alphabetical order from Z to A... damn it, I will revert the article sorting back to what it was and see if it goes back to what it should. (Edit: I have gone back to article sorting by date, but this messed up the site features again, we will be makign some updates to the site on the weekend so until there, we wil have to live with the mess there).

Edit: I am locking this thread, all discussion on this can be taken to this thread instead, it is th news item related to the fact adn an oficial announcement of the current state of things. Sad
