    it's one of the items on a menu that drops down when I touch my name up on the top right of the page
    it's about 2/3 of the way down the menu
    it's useful for finding recent discussions

    it must have been a shocker, and a huge issue to keep the site offline for so long

    longest offline ever.

    after about 8 hours you realise;

    a. It cant get any worse - so going overnight ain't going to make any difference.
    b. It's just a forum and some snow cams when there is no snow on the ground and won't be for months, so not truly critical.

    If it was winter - different kind of panic

    OK - the table with all the trouble is repaired not rebuilt 'search_index'

    It is the biggest table in the DB and strongly suspect this is why there is a gap. It takes about 3 hours to rebuild and the rebuild process crashed at 11:40 last night at which point I gave up and decided to tackle again this morn.

    The underlying problem db server disk space. Which is choked with GB's of spam on the mail server from a couple of long forgotten and unused accounts. So clean up required and new rules for mail server.

    The good news, issue has pushed along decisions for new host. Have almost settled on AWS architecture for migration.

    what @trappers did was to send his entire archive of emails back through the old Mods List and email servers, and posted some Hi Def video teaser...

    It's all about him...

    Are you sure you won't lose any more tables? What if I send a PM? Will a message from Robert'); DROP TABLE students;-- cause another problem?

    Boys you gotta get things in order Neo S is about to tackle Townsend Spur the hard way and his photos will feature the best effort of the year most probably.....but respect for all the hard work some of you have put in on this restoration.:thumbs::thumbs::thumbs:

    Bears could offer some more solid platforms but I am sure that would not go done well to some of the sleep deprived administrators. Thanks for your dedication

    The first eight hours I was not so relaxed, because... paying customers

    However, big difference to decide to spend your money on Sunday emergency rates with a tech at 11:45 pm v's Mon morning regular rates at 7:30.

    and that's how it played out

    just to be clear
    I wasn't complaining that I couldn't find a post from 17 October 2015, only pointing out that a function had been affected by the outage
    'your content' is great for finding stuff from the past few days, so it wouldn't matter to me if it became 'your recent content' if it would reduce the bloatage

    Perhaps it is because I watch the other sub forum that I got that one and not this one.....

    Conclusion: If you edit a post to add @ tags, they won't trigger. If you want to tag someone, do it in a new post rather than editing an existing post.
