It was the server hard drive that took a dump.  From what i know, which is very little at this point, all info was lost.  

The server should be back up tomorrow morning according to Vit as he has already built the new one and the forum software has been loaded/is being loaded.
Watch for my next UDP group buy.

What I was told though is that all content is lost... in other words our old posts and how-to guides are... well... gone.

It is.  That's what i said.  :P

All pm's, topics, usernames/passwords, sticky's... gone.  Vanished into thin air.

Look at it this way, so many have been b'in and moaning about how the forum's gone down hill, this gives them a chance for a fresh start they always wanted.

I missed this place though.  There were good people here.  It was due to lack of traffic.  There are already how-to guides, a database, people who know the place.  This place essentially was at one point the same people teamzx2 was..  why start from dead scratch? We've got a good start here.  That's just my own personal opinion of course.  Take it or leave it.  But I missed this place, a lot.

what makes me the most angry is they didn't back the stuff up... how to you run a site that is SO BIG with such a humongous database and not back that shit up!?  Ok i understand purging the "crap" off the boards, but those how to guides have been around since BEFORE cjw was managing the place and even moderating it... it's been on there for years and years.  Now it's toast.  That's negligent IMO.

i'm hoping someone saved all the how to's.  if not, a mistake was made.  damn scheduled maintenance, i'm boycotting it.

the only good thing i see, is reposts shouldn't happen for a while.  i'm calling dibs on the first "which intake is better" thread.

Sucks its all gone, CJW said there was a backup from about a month and a half ago, but its MIA. Hopefully we can get some good how to's back up after everything is back up and running.
98 Black MTX (no options), Powder UDP, MMI intake, no muffler, IAT resistor, Fidanza Flywheel. 211k miles.
On deck to go in soon: Progress springs, ES master Kit, LXQ1, Ford Racing struts, 19mm RSB, ported TB, and a Powder ODP.

Or instead of "starting all over" you can just build on whats here?

When you've hit rock bottom, only direction to go is up.

I'm down for that. But I gotta warn you Chris, its gonna be slow. Rebuilding all of that doesn't happen overnight. Members here have to dedicate their time when they can.

I saved a few how to's. But I personally don't like the layout of this site. It's not bad, but the other one was perfect IMO.
