Hello GZUers

In case anyone noticed something strange on Feb 12, Sunday.

I lost an important database early morning on Feb 12th (Pacific Time) and had to restore GZ from a backup.

To the average GZUer it would have appeared that on

Pacific Time: Sunday, Feb 12th ~8:30am (UTC: Sunday, Feb. 12, 2012 at 16:30)

GZ magically reverted to its state 12 hours earlier...

Pacific Time: Saturday Feb 11th ~8:30pm (UTC: Sunday, Feb. 12, 2012 at 04:30)

Any posts, instant message, profile or password changes were lost. :explode:

I'm sorry for the inconvenience although, with the traffic on this website, most people probably did not notice.

I may be able to recover critical things lost during that time. Just send me a message and I'll look through my data..

Everything is working fine again but please let me know if something is not working as expected..

Thank you and sorry again, :doh:

Well that makes sense. I thought some mod had declared holy war on me and deleted all my posts. :cwy:

I'm glad that was not the case. Still I'm sorry about losing your data though. Please accept my apologies.

Yeah, I noticed a few posts missing. Although to be fair they were crap anyway.

Hey, it's ok. I doubt I said anything particularly witty or insightful.
