Sorry about the server downtime, the hard disk decided it wanted to fail again. Unfortunately also, it failed just as I was trying to upload a backup of the forum. I have of course had other backup methods running over time, but due to recent problems, all posts from yesterday back to the 4th August are lost, and all attachments from the 31st July onwards are also lost, I believe.
You may find that attachments return 404 errors - there are a fair few gigabytes of attachments, and it is taking a while to upload, so please be patient, these should be backs soon.
EDIT: I have temporarily disabled the attachment mod until all attachments are uploaded again - otherwise, conflicts could arise between existing attachments and attachments yet to be uploaded. Apologies for the inconvenience, I hope this should be fixed by tomorrow.

All FTP logins were lost when the old hard disk died. I do have a list of most logins and will try to set these up, but if you find you can't login, then please send me a private message or an e-mail (owen[at]owenrudge.net).
Also note that, unfortunately, all MySQL databases for users accounts have been lost.
I apologise for this, but unfortunately they were not backed up with the main tt-forums database, and so did not survive the disk crash. I would hope that databases users would have taken backups at some point. Please let me know if you need a database setting up and I shall do this.
Finally, the tt-forums news mailing list has been lost, I shall set this up again soon.
If you have any problems or queries, please post a message here.
