NOTICE: Server restored from backup
« on: November 21, 2017, 07:00:35 pm »
Okay, folks  the Peppermint VPS went a little nuts during an upgrade so I've had to reload from a backup dated:-

November 21, 2017 05:19

So anything that was entered on this forum between 05:19 this morning and when the server went offline will have been lost.

My apologies, but there's nothing I can do to recover any forum entries during that time window.

Other than that, everything's fine now :)

Whew, I'm glad it wasn't a denial of service attack.  That was my first thought  ;).

That explains where that post I did earlier went.  Oh well, it happens.

I noticed earlier that there was an outage, I didn't know it was this severe until I came back to the site a while ago.
