Any visitor to the site over the last 24 hours may have seen something a little different. Namely the entire content of the site replaced by error messages and empty pages.
What started off as a very small change to our server, for testing purposes, quickly escalated into total disaster. The site took a mullering and despite our best efforts, the whole thing had to be restored from a previous backup version.
There is a small amount of good news. No data has been lost and all the latest forum posts, surf videos and images are still with us.
Gabe, aka surf patrol over on the forum, had this to say:
"What a collossal cock-up that was!"
