    ...And now my "was there a revert?" question is gone. Interesting.

    We had a database issue in which the main database failed, and the backup database automatically took over. There was about a 30 minute revert, but that was much better than a 3 day one ;)

    Cheers!

    When there's a revert of a revert, did the server's hard drives still make a sound?

    Yes, it sounds like a groaning, then a palm making firm contact with a forehead. :facepalm:

    It was my fault.

    There's a forum feature that I want to install for you guys. In a nutshell, it allows guilds to create and administrate their own forum pages without any Stratics involvement. I've been trying since Friday, most of Saturday, most of Sunday, and this evening to set up a sandbox to test it. Tonight, I accidentally pointed the live database to the sandbox database for about 30 minutes. The staff alerted Shamus, who notified me, and I corrected it as soon as I could.

    Sorry, guys. :(

    You are supposed to do that in the middle of the night. Sleep is over rated.
