Not to change the subject  ;) but CamDawg has been pretty quiet. The portraits page was up biefly today; I do hope he is in a better mood.  :)

I think he's still gathering supplies for a siege on the hosting company until they get round to fixing it.

Well, that explains my frustrating attempts to access G3.  I think it is the only forum that I've never received a database error for.  Oh well, the honeymoon couldn't last forever. :)

Yeah, I've not had problems with it until these past few days either.

Actually, I am waiting to hear which way the penny will drop on NWN2. It sounds that they at least tried to address the square worlds issue.

Damn, I am just having this bad feeling that G3 will be down for the weekend, seeing how today is Friday. (Wanders off in search of a catapult to present Cam with)

Very, very unhappy. On the upside, we're getting a new host.

I'll post details of the saga once it's over and I'm slightly less than furious.

I am available for funerals... I can bugle a mean taps. Of course, I do also know some very discrete large South Side gentlemen who can make things (objects, cars, people) disappear.

Too bad Alec's not around lately--he always threatened to launch Gibberlings 3000 when he went rogue. :)

Uh, i didn't know this is so serious.
I hope you managed to salvage the data.

I believe the new host was planned before this major suckage happened.

Well, that's the whole issue--this really could not have happened at a worse time. I recently moved, so my last opportunity to backup the database was 7/17. By the time I was back online fully, the database had been corrupted. The reason why iPower sucks is that they have a more recent backup (7/25) but have yet to restore it, though I've been assured on every support call that it is a 'top priority' and would be fixed either 'asap' or 'in a few hours'. (If I had the 7/25 data, I could do the restore myself in ~20 minutes, instead of the 90 hours we've been waiting for iPower.) I'd rather not lose those eight days--I know BG1 NPC has been very active in playtesting for v12 and we'd also lose a lot of the good, initial Fixpack feedback we've recieved--but had I known it was going to take such a ridiculous amount of time for a DB restore I would have just bitten the bullet and gone from my backup. At this rate, we still might.

From a BG1NPC perspective, don't worry, CamDawg... while we might be missing some data and some specific emails/posts (I was using the forum as primary storage), I have backups of most of the really important data; I have read too many posts from good modders who have lost major portions of their work due to accident (and my wife is a museum pro/archeoloist. She doesn't move a finger without three different backup sources in place, a habit I have come to respect). We might be missing the community conversation aspect/"historical record", but the data mining was complete at the end of each day.

We live again. Thanks for the concern everyone, and apologies for the ridiculous amount of downtime.

Thanks for bringing it back and doing all the work to keep it up to date, Cam.  We've all missed the familiar blue buttons with a gibberling on it. :)
