    RedsZone is back up and running

    All,

    As you have probably noticed, for the past 23 hours, the site was unavailable due to an unexplained database crash. I worked with the makers of vBulletin and our hosting company, HostPC, to get the problem corrected, but unfortunately, several of the database tables were corrupted beyond repair. As a result, the site had to be restored from its latest backup, which was on 1/5. Thus, all posts, registrations, etc. between then have now have been lost, but I think that's a relatively small price to pay to be back up and running.

    I'd really like to thank Joe at HostPC for doing a great job in doing his part to get the site restored as soon as humanly possible. He deserves a huge kudos for his efforts. Anyway, as as result of this, I will be making much more frequent backups moving forward in the event something like this ever were to happen again. If you have any questions, please let me know. Thank you for your patience during this time.

    Boss

    Thanks for all the hard work Boss.

    This seems so weird. I don't know where to start again.

    Has this ever happened before?

    Maybe we could reset RZ to December 1 and Willy Tavares doesn't become a Red.

    That was a scary 23 hours.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    As others have said, thanks for the hard work. It's a shame, because we've had some pretty good discussions the last week or so.

    Thanks for the hard work.

    For a minute there I felt like Jon Gruden, I thought maybe I was permanently banned from the site without my knowledge.

    Good to know that hasn't happened (yet )

    I am not a computer expert, but I believe that the site crashed because the server had reached its limit of Adam Dunn posts.

    Thanks for getting it back up!

    Wow- you can wear out keyboard keys after 23 hours of attempted log ons. Guess I can log off now...
    I've been to dinner at Jimmy Buffet's house, and I've eaten it at a homeless shelter. And there's great joy and harrowing terror to be found in both places.
