    gone!

    same thing as mine! i can see 19 of yours, 7 of mine.

    search doesn't find any of my old stuff.

    my 160 subscriptions are still listed where they should be, but all subscribed threads come up empty.

    only 1 of my many attachments is still listed. ...on a thread <N/A>

    ...someone somewhere has broken the site!

    Not sure if you noticed it but a couple of weeks ago ALL new posts looked just like those (a title but no text at all) - if you search for Mike Owen's post with BOOM in the title you'll get an idea of when. A "Super Moderator" appeared and said he was deleting a load of old threads to "buy us some time". Apart from that I don't know what happened - after a couple of days things were back to normal except the problem you have described.

    ... And the worst part is now we can't say "Check my previous posts" ... Can either you remember posts you did from last year? Somebody has screwed up around here big time -or- they did inadequate space planning ... Nothing like setting up a dev site on the cheap ...
    Back to Access ... ADO is not the way to go for speed ...

    Indeed - little things like a guy asking for Compact MDB code - I know there was a thread by Daveo with about 4 different ways of doing it but it is no longer available.

    Defo a major cock up

    Let alone the stuff Izy and myself did with the NotInList event of comboboxes ... That one really hurts.

    Yeah - sorry - it was the first one that came to mind lol. There are a lot of really useful resources that, on the face of it, are lost (until someone, perhaps, pops in a new drive adn restores a load of data).

    you guys didn't keep your own copies of your best posts?

    you relied on the site archives to be available forever?

    well, there's that quaint illusion shattered forever, eh

    tip: try google's cache, it has lots of this site's archived posts

    Rudy ... Rudy ... Rudy ... Why keep a copy of a post when I have the original material ... It becomes a pain only if I offer to repost or someone requests it (and only after I offer to supply it again) ...
