Incidentally, iceheart and I have taken to playing a new game on the IRC channel. It's called "try and guess how long the database connection will go down for!"
It's loads of fun, especially when I'm trying to post news articles or forum replies.

I'm also going to clean-up the colours on the login box on the right (note: you won't see it if you're logged-in) as they're way too hard to read right now.
If anyone notices any other problems with the site or forums, don't hesitate to let me know. We need to get these teething troubles sorted out sooner rather than later, so that the team can get back down to brass tacks.

I will change it to send mail "from" firstname.lastname@example.org or something similar very shortly.
If you already registered but never received your confirmation e-mail, go to the "forgot password" page and you should be able to send it again.

I've contacted tech support. In the meantime, I recommend not registering yet. Sorry. You can still participate on the forums as a guest.
I will test e-mail here every few hours and post again when it's working. You'll be able to use the "lost password" form to re-send the registration confirmation e-mails at that time.

I call it the Shock Trailer. The more game-music cognizant of you may recognize why.
Anyways, it weighs in just under ten megs and you can grab it from moddb. DivX codec is required.

1. Everything fine and dandy
2. iceheart performs mysql upgrade on doom3reference.com
3. All tables lost, including those for the IC board
4. Everything not so fine and dandy
When the DB died and iceheart realised that he hadn't made a proper DB backup (you can't just back up the mysql_data folder for innodb tables, you need the logs as well), I realised that:
a) The forums should be hosted on the same site as the, uh, site.
b) I should set up a CMS so that I don't have to copy-paste my posts into the forums to get comments
c) I need to control the site and the forums.
So, here we are. Into Cerberon's forums and site are now hosted by xn3.net, the UK-based hosting service that IC lackey W3bdevil works for. I'm paying less per month for more storage, more bandwidth, more features, and - best of all - more control.
The other major change is moving the gallery and the primary downloads to moddb. moddb is, quite simply, awesome, and the gallery system they have is way better than anything I could've made or found or whatever. The best part is that I can grant team members who register for moddb the ability to upload files and images of their own to the site, making my job as "Site administrator" a lot easier, and giving me more time to focus on my roles as "Team Lead" and "Lead Programmer".
Anyways, in the coming week I will be directing my efforts to regenerating as much of the content of the forums as possible. Most of you who visited here were probably aware that there was a not insignificant amount of stuff there that the team was using to build forward; this will need to be rewritten or salvaged from the forums database dumps.
Welcome back to Into Cerberon. Let's get crackin'.
