On November 6th around 6 pm something happened with a RAID array on the server where the website is hosted. This could not be fixed, so the hosting company started restore from a backup. After taking 24 hr, the restore failed and had to be re-started. This was complete only by 12 pm today.

Me have RAID at home.

The server system is very nice and easily expanded for storage. (I use the Synology 1511+).

Sorry to hear they had so many problems with it. I hope nothing was lost!

It looks that whatever was on this RAID array got lost. The restore was from a daily backup. So forum posts written after the backup was done are lost.

Welcome back. I was suffering from withdrawal for a couple of days.
