    Backups?

    Eileen,

    The forum has been great, and I can tell from may responses I'm not the only one who thinks so.

    However, after what happenened to the last forum (+ ikonboard) , is there a backup taken (on a different server or medium) to ensure we're not going to lose such a great resource again?

    I'm sorry Mummy, you've been doing a fantastic job, and I hope Woody has been compensating you adequately... but a backup just may be more important than other things we've been whinging about..

    I dump the database every night. Want to buy me a nice big new HD? [img]/w3timages/icons/grin.gif[/img]

    Do you get any sleep when you dump this database?
    The last time I used the 'Dump' command, it took several hours to dump a 10 gig hard drive to a large reel of tape.
    Of course this was 'before retirement'.[img]/w3timages/icons/grin.gif[/img]

    Hey, for all the work you're putting into it, can't Woody even get you a nice HD?
