Hi Ross, where did the site go? It seems it's vanished...

There's a database issue at the moment which I, having next to know knowledge of SQL stuff, have no idea how to resolve. I need to get in touch with my webhost and ask their advice I think. I'll get on it tomorrow, thanks for the reminder!

Thank you Ross.
(I'd like to re-read everything before listening to Archived 9)

Hi Ross, I don't want to bother you, but waiting for Archived 9 (or From The Archives 9, for god's sake) I'd like all their history, and your wiki is perfect for that...
Do you have news?
(or, if you archived it in pdf or something similar, could you send it to me?)

Thanks in advance.

I'm in completely over my head here - rooting about in the database tables but frankly no idea what any of this means. Somehow a spambot has gained access to the site (I set posting restrictions to accounts I've approved, so I'm not sure how) and filling it up with shit, which has pushed the database over its limit. Whether I'll be able to sort that out without paying a database developer to help me out or not is a different matter entirely... don't hold your breath.


edit: ok seem to be making some progress. Fucking hell there is a LOT of shit in here! To give you an idea, I've created 176 pages of content for the wiki so far. There currently appear to be around 40,000 pages on the site. Naughty spambot.

Ross - Does the wiki package (or your host) have an SQL maintenance page - If so it *should* be possible to remove every post that's posted by a particular user using one line of SQL.

Ok, site's back. I'm looking at maybe moving it over to an easier-to-manage format, however. Might see if I can somehow find a half-decent Wordpress template somewhere and use that instead.

Thanks Ross! In two hours time I switched from "depression mode" to "euphoric mode"! Looking forward to read it all, thanks :)

Hi Ross, it seems that your domain is for sale. Is it true? Or you just forgot about paying for it? :P
Anyway…is the Wiki disappeared for ever?
I used to love it so much, and I usually read it before each new record comes out...

Unfortunately I fucked the database up big time and lost it all. I shouldn't be in charge of this stuff really. And yeah, I gave up the domain as I can't really afford it and hosting at the moment. I'd like to get around to re-doing it, and may at some point, but sadly that probably won't be for a while. Some pages are still readable on the Internet Archive.
