    Was just about to drop you a line.

    Short story is that the database got itself in a hellishly corrupted
    state.* I`ve been up, literaly all night working on getting it back
    into shape...

    I`m still working on getting everything back into shape, but I`m beat,
    and I`ve got to go to work in a few hours, and I`d rather not loose a
    ton of data because I`m too tired to think straight.

    I eventually just blew away the database instal, and reloaded data
    from backups.* Unfortunately, I tried to do a dump of the data from
    Birthright, and I couldn`t.* There were a LOT of tables from your site
    that came out corrupted -- mostly from the wiki.* I couldn`t get a
    clean dump.

    I do have a backup of the database storage files, and I`m going to
    work on figuring out how to get the db restored tonight.

    I`m sorry about this mess, caught me totally off guard (and I was away
    at a conference when this started, so the incremental backups are all
    trashed, by the time I actually noticed things were really bad)* I`ll
    get you sorted out tonight....

    *- flip

    Ouch, hope the wiki doesn't lose much.
