LAMP was hit with a worm in December 2004 that
did a tremendous amount of damage. It didn't hit our personal computers,
but it hit the servers at our host ReadyHosting.com. It would have
been so bad except that it also hit the server which held our backup.
We were only down for 2 days, but when we came
back up thousands and thousands of records were gone and we didn't
have a backup to replace it...
Sue and I worked feverishly trying to upload
as many records as possible. We had to use some older versions of
articles and rework some areas...
The primary areas that are still down are the
History Section and the Serial Section. We lost about 150 articles
in History and we're having to completely redo Serials.
In regular articles, it's easy to tell the older
articles. If there are sponsor ads on both sides of the article,
then it's an older article. The newer articles only sponsor ads
on the left with a maroon background.
We will be updating the older articles as fast
as we can, but it's going to take a couple of months to get everything
back in order.
We are about to put up a special
404 page for errors that will have an email link to alert us of broken
links.....Please take the time to email to help us know the areas
that we need quicker attention to.
