    Sorry guys for the outage. It was every database administrators worst nightmare, read corruption followed by write corruption on the hard drives of one of our main database servers. Thus followed a lengthy recovery process from binary log files. Please let us know if you find something wrong with the site following this recovery.

    That was great, I did some work, spent some time actually talking aloud to real people and I didn't piss in a bottle next to the computer.

    it's 95% ok here, some fonts are a bit.. different, the title of the thread at the top of this page for example seems to have lost it's styling.

    Someone needs to register and set-up a backup forum for these scary moments. I got far too much stuff done in that time.

    The EGTV episode on the homepage (Record Breakers one, which features my mate, James) isn't working. Just so you know.
