We're not starting over, th database which has all the posts, PMs, settings and such was never damaged and is intact.

If the database is intact, why couldn't the post counts be restored?
That was a joke.

I added the last line to the quote and bolded it.
Given that Murphy has ruled this week, my post ended up at the top of the page :D

I believe the post counts were mentioned by the ISP regarding email.  Not the forum message counts. 

I think Kes should modify the DNS entry for .net to point to a "site temporarily unavailable" page on .org until he has the web site up and running.  When he is happy with .net he modifies the DNS to point back to .net home page.  This would cut down on messages here and activity on the site he is working on.  My 2 cents.

If I'm posting *here*, I'm not moving/locking/deleting threads *there*.

The .net site is back up but sometimes you can't get back into a page, or post what you have written. It's getting there, though.

Getting a lot of error messages. I'll wait a while before I try back again. Nice to see that it is somewhat back up again.

Ditto.
Many of my attachments are still there, many (more recent) are missing.

That's going to suck because many of those attachments came from my ISP personal web space and I haven't been able to FTP into that server for over a year... many of my files on that server were not backed up locally.

'Don't Panic'

We're doing a database backup right now so it's going to give an error.
We're doing a full backup because while the forum is up we have a few files that are not responding so I'm going to upgrade from 3.8.7 to 3.8.9 and hope the update replaces any problematic files.

I logged off Net for a bit, and tried to get back on just now, but get a "Database Error"

Maybe because of the backing up??

Any idea on how bad the damages to the attachment database will be?
Even if we identify each attachment and find a local file, we can't "reinsert" it into the database without editing every individual post, and that won't restore future posts that IMG linked to the same attachment.

I was halfway through my review of the Ulticlip and discovered it was down again when I tried to "go advanced" to add an attachment.
Luckily, I have Lazarus installed so I was able to recover what I had put in the "Quick Reply" window and copy it to the notepad.

Lazarus has been a lifesaver, both for short-term forum outages (like the 5-minute outage at midnight on Calguns, wish Kest would move that routine to 3am), or for when my freaking Verizon ActionLowTech router decides that the table is full and it needs to reboot.

Why not put a message on the .net page to tell people that Calguns.org is the alternate site when the .net is down?

Uhhmmm ya ... I did exactly that and not 4 minutes later it got locked.

Now, I don't care why the thread was locked ... makes absolutely no difference to me and absolutely no explanation needed.

Simply tells me CGN Admin doesn't want CGO getting flooded with membership sign-ups. Okay so ... won't do that again.

Hmmmmm ... in other news; I pruned my wife's rose bushes and acacia tree today ... having coffee and ice cream now 'Hagan Daz' - vanilla bar with crunch  :D

Even if we identify each attachment and find a local file, we can't "reinsert" it into the database without editing every individual post, and that won't restore future posts that IMG linked to the same attachment.

By default vBulletin stores attachments in the database however as the forum gets larger database size becomes an issue and attachment storage has to be shifted over to the file server which we did.
The database is undamaged but the files on the server took some damage.
We're up and running but we're also still working to recover some files that were lost or damaged.

That's a really good idea, why didn't you mention it BEFORE I started doing the update???
