We suffered a catastrophic server failure at about 5:30pm Tuesday night. Spanky and Ra have put another machine in place and have restored some basic services, including most of the web site, the image gallery, and the e-playa. There may still be glitches in the services that are up, but we're on the road to recovery.
They had to restore from our previous night's backup, which happened at about 2:00am Tues morning, so any changes to any files that happened on Tuesday were lost.
This means we lost all the new topics and posts between 2am Tues and 4:30 am Wed, when they were able to get a replacement server up. We deeply regret the loss of dialogue.
Big thanks to Spanky & Ra for staying up all night dealing with this.

Will those missing pages be able to restored?

i think it's ok for our conversational art to be ephemeral every now and again, too.

I'll definitely try...
it's interesting: this post is the first time I've been able to see YOUR avatar, my dear...
(and thanks for all your hard hard work... I bought you a drink in the bar...)
