    Looks like the hard drive is going out on the server. Everything is backed up, so stats and whatnot are safe.

I'm going to leave the server up as it is for the weekend.. it should make it through. Monday I will call and see if I can get it fixed - so expect it to be down Monday and possibly for more of the week.

The gallery index was damaged, it lost about 2/3rds of the picture info. The pictures themselves are intact, and I have a backup of the index data from late January that I will restore when the hardware is fixed.

    It's a hardware issue.. hard drives just go out sometimes. Not too horrible, considering the server had been up for over 900 days without issue. But I have to contact the server company about it, and I'm not sure what they do in this case. I'll find out more Monday.

    Yea, pics are gone but whatever im sure in this digital age we all have copies and backups ourselves... but the main thing is that stats were saved.. that should be backed up everyday...

    I know I have the pics I uploaded saved around here somewhere. Most of the screenshots aren't that important(and I know what the captions were)...and I can re-upload the photos if need be.

I do agree with Molson, though.... it's good that the stats were preserved, and I'm guessing they will be saved again when the hardware is replaced....assuming it lasts that long.

I'm not exactly a "stat whore"...but it's fun to do comparisons.

    The only gallery info that might be lost is any pictures added after January.

Yep, I'll back everything up again come Monday.
It should make it.
