    Our host:
    "One of our servers was corrupted this afternoon by a remote hacker. He appears to have used an exploit discovered earlier this year, which has not yet been patched. In order to ensure the server's integrity, we are forced to erase the current contents of the system and reinstall all software from scratch. We will then restore the user's data files from our nightly backup."

    So were back, and only a few hours of posts were lost.

    Sorry for this :(

    I don't understand why anyone would want to hack into any message board (especially this one, 'cause it's so great ;) ). I tried to get on last night since I didn't post all weekend, and I was so afraid that something had happened and allalias had to go or something. I'm glad we're back on though!

    Just a reminder, it is not a good idea to post long posts directly into the post box. It is better to write them in a program like Word or even Notepad so you can save them. We do do backups, but only daily ones.

    wow, I wondered how come I couldn't get online last night. I was looking forward to doing some posting after a long day of studying, but I guess it wasn't meant to be. Ah well, got some Alias episode watching in. ;)

    Thanks for getting it back up so soon though Charlie. :D
