A good thing that's come out of it all is that I now know that I've only wasted 12 minutes of my life logged onto the forum....not the days it previously claimed!  {-)

No Nobby, it's still yours and we all know that,
 ... as below, I'm still trying to reconnect all the old accounts.


Is there anything we can do to help you reconnect the old accounts?

It's a bit beyond me, quite a bit!

I still speaking to a programer to see if we can recover the member list from a couple of weeks ago.

Wow, what a struggle to get back on. Seems OK now despite only one posting.

  Regards   Ian.

Well I'm still trying to work through the problem but initial findings:

1. Don't always believe what the software writers say about their backup system.
2. A Hosting company's IT support dept. can actually be less than useless.


Martin, it sounds like Mayhem got off lightly, (apart from the members list).

Another forum I'm a member of got hit a couple of years ago, when they went to restore the backup, the first 'usable' thread-database backup was 10 months old, (ironically the members database was okay), they lost a lot of data and members because of it <:(

As the IT-Admin said afterwards - every week that so**ing backup gets a restore check <*<

Hi Martin

Many thanks for your hard work  :-)) - if there was costs involved in the relaunch shout out and I'm sure we can chip in ?.

Love to get my posts and links back though......... O0

Gee lads - I've missed you all. I've been talking to the wife and mother in law - even done some plastering - oh it's been awful.

Dave ......... now just where is my avatar - feel so naked without it. {-)

Me to I'm Back..Post count not bothered about and luckily I get a  copy of all my Pm's on my email so no problems..  

One point Worth Mentioning if not already done so, If you have registered and have not received your registration email check you Spam folder, and not just the one on your PC as most providers, Virginmedia, BT, Tiscali all have off site filters which stop a lot of spam even getting to your PC but are kept on file for you to view when you log in externally.. I know this as this is where Both this registration went and the registration to the Temp Forum was When I remembered to look there..

Well Done Martin and team.. :-))

My answer " Gawd knows, we have been asking that question for years, but I believe that it may have something to do with Model boats among the complete mayhem"


Was Not accetable !!   :}
