Dear IL ites, First of all my sincere apologies for making the site unavailable for the past few hours without any prior notification. While I am happy to inform that the site is back, I am saddened to say that we lost the past 4 days of data in the process. Now, the site is back with the database restored with users, threads, posts and private messages as of 4 days back. It will have ONLY the data that was there when we opened up the site in the new Linux server 4 days back. While trying to optimize the database for better performance of the site, we lost the working database. We had no option but to restore the database from the previously taken back-up. I am aware how much thought and time you all have put into making every single post here. I sincerely apologize for loosing that data for the past 4 days. Be assured that this is not going to repeat. Thank you for your understanding. P.S - How fragile these O's and 1's are..!
