GT/GTF downtime
« on: November 23, 2010, 02:21:19 AM »

As some of you may have noticed, GT and GTF went down hard a couple of days ago. This was due to a bad hard drive causing major issues with read/write access. Anyhow, it's been mounted and the data has successfully been salvaged off of it which is why you can see GT and the forums.

Before anyone asks, yes, backups were made but amazingly, they ended up being corrupt. With some tar hackery most of the data was recovered. This backup is from 11/14, which was a few days before the HDD decided to eat itself. A few posts have most likely been lost unfortunately.

Big thanks to Kris (kid) for staying up late with me. I probably wouldn't have been able to pull most of this off without his help.

I know the site has some issues at the moment with broken links everywhere. I'll patch those up over the next few days.
