Sorry to edit this post.  It wouldn't let me post my own message.
The site's software is in need of an upgrade. I contacted Defect via SMS to get the username that I need in order to accomplish this.  Hopefully he'll reply in a timely manner.

Hey gang,
Sorry for the hassles. It looks like there was an issue with the upgrade. All of the source files are up to date, but somehow the db didn't get updated. I put in a ticket with SMF and should receive a response soon.

On an optimistic note, it's still showing the normal amounts of threads and posts (if not the content itself) so  :shamrock:

Friday the 13th.  :uncertain:

I don't have Defect's email addy. It looks like he hasn't been online since the 11th, so if one of y'all have his address, please let him know. It looks like Biz has an address listed in his profile, so I'll go ahead and let him know.

I don't know if this post is even going to work - I can't view the thread after making the first post.

Assuming this post makes it and you can read it, I think I fixed the problem.

It looks like the messages table somehow got corrupted.

Initially I thought it was related to the SMF upgrade, but it looks like that had nothing to do with it. The upgrade doesn't even touch the db.

Anyway, I restored the latest backup (from 4am or 5am this morning) and "repair"ed the table and it seems to be working so far. Let me know if you have any more issues. Unfortunately any posts made after the backup script ran are lost for good.

My email is psidefect AT gmail DOT com.

Save it. It's almost always the best way to get in touch with me. I don't want to post my cell number here, but if you PM me, I'll gladly give you that info too.

You are more than welcome.

I apologize for the interruption.

Fast? Wasn't the site down for like six hours?

:hmm: Not quite five nines there.

 :lol:  I have no idea.  I got to work, checked it, and then a few minutes later it was back.  My perception was "fast".

In that case, if you are on the west coast...

There was no major outage.
