Twitter Updates

For those who don't know, we're trying to update via Twitter.

 

https://twitter.com/manxforums

 

Basically a database table containing all the MF posts ever has fallen into a corrupt state. Due to the size, normal recovery methods aren't having much effect so I'm now looking into dumping the data out and rebuilding it from an extract. Obviously that's quite drastic and it's proper shit-the-bed type stuff as one error and it's all gone. I don't know how current our backups are right now, Uni does that stuff, so I'm going with the assumption that I need to get this right first time.

 

So, the blogs module uses a different table than posts so all being well this should appear and hopefully either direct people to the Twitter, or at least understand it's being worked on.

 

It's a lovely day outside, go get some fresh air.

Ok, looks like there's some progress that isn't going to involve a risky dump and rebuild.

Woolley, I've looked at that topic on the front page with an ironic smile every time it's come back up after a restart.

 

Uni is working on it too now, he's on holiday the poor lad, I'm sure there are 10000000000000000 better things to be doing than this.

You've got to give God some respect, when he flounces, he flounces.
