9:20 pm - Good news!

It was pretty messed up this time, but Opal and MrEction (formerly UnDeadDude) have come through once again!

After MrE reinstalls a plugin or two, the 3FMB will be back with no lost posts! That will probably happen some time around the beginning of the week.

The announcement can be seen here.

A round of chocolate and cookies for both of them!

EDITED TO ADD: It's up! It's up, it's up, it's up, it's up, it's up!

6:43 pm - Fathom outage update!

Over at The Lair, opalcat came along and let us know what the status of Fathom is. Following is her post. As you can see, it's a bit of a mixed bag...

In keeping with tradition, the very night I left for a relaxing vacation at my family's summer lake house in New Hampshire, evil hackers took out the server. In the past, we've found out about hacking because we see little oddities. This time they actually went and installed cPanel, which overwrote all of our Apache configurations and so on. Basically, they broke *everything*. I got on the phone with the techs and they made a backup of the server onto another computer for safekeeping, and turned off our server.

The very next morning my laptop refused to power on. I had to take it three towns over to the nearest repair shop. *sigh*

Anyway, the long story condensed down is this: my laptop works again, but the backup they made was jumbled garbage when they tried to unzip it, and when they tried to turn our server back on, it would not boot up. So I have no way of getting to any of our old data through them (but I'm 99% sure that nothing was actually lost.) They have physically mailed the hard drive to Rob and he is going to put it into one of his computers and try to get the data off. At that point, I can set it all up again on a new server.

Oh what fun.

I am not sure when he will get the drive or how long it will take to get the data off. I am going to be out of town again for a wedding from Thursday night until Sunday night but other than that I'm going to be around, so as soon as that stuff is available I'll be setting it up fresh. Cross your fingers that the disk is recoverable!

[Needless to say, my vacation was totally ruined. :( ]

So, she's got the experts working on it, and with luck it will be back with nothing lost. Keep your fingers crossed! And by all means, don't forget to thank opalcat for her tireless efforts. Thanks, Opal!

12:21 am - Fathom is down, but not yet out.

Hey guys, in case you haven't noticed, the Fabulous Forums are down. It appears there was some sort of server hack job, and opalcat's doing what she can to fix it. Please bear with her while she gets it back up again.

In the meantime, piratelady has her message board, PirateLady's Lair, where many of us go to keep in touch with each other, and get news about progress with Fathom. See you there!

I couldn't reply to several posts last night, and this morning, I got this message:

There seems to have been a slight problem with the database.

Hey! Is it me or is Fathom down?

I'd do more, but I'm at work and don't have access to all my contact info.

12:47 pm - Open invitation..

Come visit
[Error: Irreparable invalid markup ('<a href-"http://pub50.ezboard.com/bcanadope">') in entry. Owner must fix manually. Raw contents below.]

Come visit <a href-"http://pub50.ezboard.com/bcanadope">Canadope</a>! We're apparently getting a lot of traffic from a bunch of different sites all over the web. I'm just getting used to this admin gig, and it definitely involves promo! (well, maybe not strictly.. but the way I see it, part of my job is to direct people to the site) So excuse / forgive my insane cross-posting. At least I'm not resorting to illegal means to drive traffic to the site. ;)

Non-Canadians are welcome, and some are already registered. So don't worry, it won't be all us Canadians against the rest of the world. :D

If you want to register, you'll need a free EZBoards account. Shouldn't be too hard to get.. but of course, you're free to lurk around as well. :) So come visit, and please give me feedback here if you do. I think we need all the feedback we can get! (it's only been up and running for two days proper.. give us time to iron out the kinks, aye?)

Okay, I have just joined the Fathom community. You can read my LJ if you want.. but it's not like there's enduring wisdom to be found therein. :D

8:19 am - This is funny...

"I'm gonna go do something crazy tonight"
"and twinkie will start to strip"
"like the lesbian experimentation in college"
"just listening The Cranberries"
"...my testicles laminated."

From today's accumulated chat stats.
