I've obviously developed some very deep psychic connection with the site... listless and troubled I got up at 4AM to find postings totally empty and all existence of forums and messages denied by the sever. "Oh good" I thought!!
I've rebuilt the databases and corrected one thread that seemed to struggle at first. Hopefully that is it, but if anybody spots an oddity or two can they email me (hit the next to my name on this posting) or reply to this message. Ta
