There's been something weird going on all day here. It's finally been diagnosed as a Full server. One of the hard drives got full and nothing else would fit. I fear that some threads were lost because of it and am sorry for that. We've shed some dead/useless files and hope it is OK now.

BIG oops here,


If someone can remember specific threads missing and wouldn't mind starting them anew, please do. I don't think that any lost threads can be put back in here even if we had a backup because they would not be in the Forum index anymore.

I made 2 test threads in both the general and non-us forums that were never visible and that's what clued me in to the urgency of the problem here. It seems that no threads could be added (or lengthened) because the server was full.

If you want to see something interesting, there is a post in the NEC area with no Title. This is probably the remnants of a modified post that couldn't be updated (lengthened) because there was no room left on the server. I hope that it wasn't anything too important. [Linked Image]

The way to see the "no title" post is to read one after it and then "go to the newest post" (or whatever the wording is).

The title and the post are blank [Linked Image]

I saw one before that if I remember correctly was posted by ga.sparky56...

I guess we're a talkative bunch [Linked Image]
