The silence is deafening.

 ::) A bit empty around here isn't it ?  :D

I don't look forward to trying to remember my previous problems and posts, even the recent ones. :(  :o

Don't worry, I didn't lose my todo list ;). I keep track of all these feature requests and bugs. Now, I don't know which were specifically yours, but I am confident they are on my todo list.

I really hate that I lost the forum messages, it was a disaster. The messages table got corrupted and the last backup I had was months old. I am going to keep better backups of that database now. Ironically, it is the only thing I didn't have good backups of.

I suspect the corruption was probably caused by someone attempting to hack the forum via an SQL injection attack, or buffer overflow. I'm pretty sure it was intentional, or an incidental side-effect of intentional hacking.

Anyway, I sincerely apologize for the 'hard reset' and am taking steps to make sure it never happens again.
