    Thumbs down Had a big oops!!! Lost Saturday.

    Kinda like a big booze fest you may have had when you were a big drinker.

    Well it's like that but here.

    Everybody knows I have been fighting these spammers like crazy. I was in the site and decided I wanted to clear out some old stuff from previous owner.

    Well I clicked one thing wrong... POOF I deleted the site!!



    I freaked out needless to say.

    My only saving grace... I did a complete back up of it Friday night before installing the awesome spam killing software.

    The site was down all night while it was being restored but it's back... MINUS anything we did from Friday about 630pm till now.

    I'm sorry guys... I did learn a what not to do though...

    Kosher, Aaron Kelly, and ABI... I know you three put up new threads... I'm sorry. Please re-do.

    I damn near lost my cookies/blew chunks. I'm talking cold sweats, and panic!

    My only saving grace was a manual back up that I trained myself into doing before I do any mods to the site. Had it not been for that, it would have been turned back a week, to the hosting company's weekly back up.

    I have been up nearly all night to put the site back.

    Yeah that's like saying I did a good job of 90% recovering from a major major F up. I still F'ed up.

    Can I get 5 more percent for learning more?

    Another more current back up done again. Saved twice over. This will include the software updates for spam killing and a bunch of spammers I zapped manually (about 140 of them).

    Man it's been a rough week for me.

    This site may end up being the death of me.

    You guys may have to mark forum as read to take the old posts off your new posts. It's a cookie issue that may show old threads you have seen, saying you haven't seen them.
