    I know bad things may happen any times. As long as DP coming back online, I have no problem for losing Comments or anything else. As webmaster and forum owner (maintaining small groups of local university) I can feel the pain.
    Let's start posting again, shall we?:D

    Well, if there is one thing that we all can learn from this, it is that a regular creation of backups is very important and should not be underestimated. Don't keep your precious data in only one place unless you don't mind losing them.

    I am glad that you managed to restore the website, I can imagine that it must have been very stressful.

    Now that we are fully in the cluster, live backups while database is in use is nice at least... :)

    If you think recent posts are gone and need the info check Google cache. The chances are it will be there for a few days.

    Anyway Shawn DP is still here:) So we are all delighted. And its still the best forum:)

    No man is broken because bad things happen to him. He’s broken because he doesn’t keep going after those things happen. Let's remember and start posting the missing threads and conversations. :cool:

    These things happen, it's not the end of the World and it's only going to make things better for the future. I like the way the site is going, I can't help feel though that there's a lot more posts in the general chat category than other categories. I think some kind of filtering system on the What's New page so we can only see stuff related to web dev rather than "Who's better lady gaga or Madonna"

    I am not sad that I have lost my comments, Likes and conversation but happy to see that DP is back and It's all for me. Loss and gain are the part of life. Whenever we lost something at the same time we also get something in return of that loss. It's the law of nature, I know it's a tough time for the Admin of DP but I have trust that they can make it much better than before and they handled the whole situation very nicely. Here I have a message for DP.
    “Don’t grieve. Anything you lose comes round in another form.”
    And:

    Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.
    BEST OF LUCK DP. :)
