Well moderator Leo - care to give an explaination of what happened?
Why was the site down? What happened to the data?
I will give an explination. 'Defication occures'. Something happened with the SQL and a mod that was done a while back. There was a bad process/thread and a backup from the 27th didnt match the template or mod that was on the forum properly.
Some services do backups on sites for just such an occasion. ANYTHING can take a dump at any time. No code is perfect, no admin is perfect, no server.. truck... Things just brake.
Its up, its working, its miller time! ( wait.. I don't drink LOL! )
2:30 PM...on my way to work....an older model S-dime (96~ish...rounded front with sqaure headlights) pulls up beside me and revs, while rolling. The thing is, he has an auto, so I was like WTF. The truck was red with black racing stripes and a HUGE West Coast Choppers symbol in the rear glass..
We stop at a light. He revs, I rev...bla bla. Immediately before the launch, I hold the brake down, bring it to around 2500K RPMs, and I shot off the line like a damn bullet. I could hear him doing the one wheel peel, but by now I'm at 25 an climbing. He never could reel me in, I don't know what the deal was. He had a V-6...it was way too deep for a 4-banger.
Anyways I ran until 80 mph and eased off...he does a flyby and swoops in front of me. Just in time for the twisties......har har har :badgrin:
There's a 5-mile stretch of road that a lot of bikers use to run. It's full of 90's, chicanes, long sweeping turns....a fun little road.
Needless to say, his stock suspension and 16" wheels/tires weren't helping him. I left his *** on the third corner, and never looked back. At the end of the road, he was a good minute behind me.
And come to find out, he works at Nissan!
He wouldn't even speak. I got him on the straights (thanks Pirelli) and in the twisties (thanks again P).
I think the older model S-10s only had about 160 HP though, but I still enjoyed the victory.
