  • Yeah, owning a MAME cab only leads to owning real ones. MAME just isn't good enough. It's a gateway drug.

Good to see things getting back to normal.
Ajax should have been named Warlord, not Swan.

First off, Hoopz is right.

some posts are missing though.  Is this normal? That is, will more data be restored, or are they gone? (newer high score competition post is gone)

No, anything missing is gone. We are running on the most recent backup, but backups run once per day, so we could potentially be missing 23 hours or so of forum posts.

Glad the forum is back up, but I think we are missing a lot more than that.
I recall going back and forth with OP for several days in this thread:
http://forum.arcadecontrols.com/index.php/topic,151448.0.html
When I went back this morning, only the original post was there.

On my post history, my last post before this morning shows as 8/6.
Has it been that long since it went down?

Not that I expect anything to be done about it.
It is what it is.
Glad to have BYOAC back.

Thanks for getting things going again. Switching a cabinet over from a 60-in-1 to MAME and realized that without this forum I have no chance of getting it going!
Completed projects: Pac bartop (Plug & Play), 30th Anniversary Pac cab (MAME), Point Blank (PS1), Centipede (arcade hardware- light restore), VS. Super Mario Bros (arcade hardware- light restore) Tetris Cocktail (SNES), Arcade Classics upright (60-in-1, then MAME), Multi-Raiden (arcade hardware). Pac Man vs.(Gamecube),

Working on: Pinball Re-theme, Homebrew arcade arena shooter

Yeah, you could've went to KLOV, but they would balk at the mention of MAME.

Not sure what happened, but the backup I restored from was from midnight August 6th. I think it really has been that long.

I concur with badmouth.  I don't expect anything to happen, but definitely some missing.  THANK YOU for your hard work, Saint!

I am sorry about the lost posts - not sure what happened if we lost more than 23:59 hours worth.

IMPORTANT - I had to manually edit the database this evening, to fix a problem where new users could not register. I think all is well (a leftover field in a table that was from a mod that isn't installed anymore), but if you see anything weird please let me know.

Thanks, and thanks for the kind words and support everyone :)

Hm. OK, thank you. Will attempt to puzzle that out but probably unable to restore :(

PMs working now?
