    Folks, as some of you may have noticed, we've lost about a dozen of the last 24 hours, between late last night and late this morning.

    What seems to have happened is this: late last night there was a hardware upgrade, and when the system was restored, for reasons unknown, it was restored from a backup from several days ago. When our intrepid tech crew came to work this morning they realized something had gone deeply wrong and re-restored the system from last night's backup, since which time all has been running fine, but all the comments made in the interval when the wrong version was running were lost in the transition.

    The bad news is that there is apparently no safe way to re-integrate the posts made during that interval with the current ones.

    We apologize profusely for this and are trying to find out why this happened so we can ensure it doesn't happen again. Meanwhile, our best advice is to go ahead and re-post whatever you may have posted between about 11 last night and

    his Tralthamadorian time jumping? Hey, I want to pick when I want to jump back (a couple shows I want to revisit!) The Truth is realized in an instant, the act is practiced step by step.

    No worries!
    But it was weird! It affected the inboxes too so just be aware. "When the smoke has cleared she said, that's what she said to me. You're gonna want a bed to lay your head and a little sympathy"

    Thanks Mary
    Many apologies to all those inconvenienced by this glitch. The good news is, the hardware update was done to address some performance issues that had been plaguing us the last couple of weeks. We were in need of an upgrade and we got it - so things should be configured nicely for the months ahead (knocking on compressed wood desk). Frog
