    [GeoExpat] - 90 Mins of Lost Data

    Bit of a muck up from my end - lost about 90 mins worth of data in a backup/restore of the site this morning.

    Data from 8AM to about 9:30AM was lost - includes new registrations, private messages, forum topics, classifieds etc.

    My apologies for this!

    (No conspiracy theories - just a stupid mistake on my end. Restored a backup to a production database, instead of a development database)

    Have a GeoExpat related problem - please create a support ticket.

    The data isn't lost, you can buy it back for a few bitcoins. Wait, they come soon.

    Well, its all there in the mysql binary logs... just too lazy to attempt a full recovery.

    No worries. I drank too much last night and lost about 3-5 hours of my personal data last night.
