By now you've all surely seen that TLZ has been down since Thursday. The short version of the story is that we had a problem with the server, which say us lose the live version of the site, as well as the backups.

I'm pretty gutted right now, as it looks like the site is a total loss (I'm looking into shipping the hard drives off to a data recovery service, and paying out the nose to have them scrape the 1's and 0's off the drives so we can get the files back, but I'm don't want to get my hopes up on this option).

So what you're seeing right now is the site, without any member accounts, threads, or posts. Yeah...we have to start all over. It sucks big-time, and it'll take a few days (more likely weeks) to get everything the way we want it, so pardon the dust. If the server goes down again, it's probably because we're fixing something, or doing something behind the scenes, just bear with us.

On the bright side, this has forced us to finally upgrade to the latest version of vBulletin...which is pretty nice.

Post up bugs, suggestions, and general "crashtd you suck" comments either in this thread or in the Suggestion forum.

ps. FAIR WARNING: If we get really lucky, and the old files are recovered, there's a possibility anything posted this week could be lost. We'll try not to let that happen, but hey we know how that goes...

Didn't know if I needed to re-sign up or not, so I did. If you need anything from me that could possibly help the situation, I'm here (as are a lot of others).

I know you're busy as heck... good luck, and thanks for working so hard to bring it all back! :)

Yep, big thanks for all the hard work and effort.:cool:

Edit: Shit, I just realized I didn't capitalize the "S" in my user. If you have a change (If you don't, don't worry about it), could you change it?

I know, I know. I gets me though. I was trying to make it capitalized and the stupid browser must have changed it (from user/PW memory).

Glad to see it back online. Perhaps there is a previous owner or something that has an old back-up file lying around? That way we'd only need to start over from whatever years back.. Just a thought.

Btw, I kinda like the new, clean design of it too! Minimalist! :laugh
