12:25PM- I spoke too soon and forgot all about the search tables. That's going to be a long process.
5/8 08:02AM- Work continues. Still going, albeit slowly. Currently it's working on the Private Messages table, so I have no doubt that will be reasonably large. I can't imagine there's many more big ones after this.
8:20PM- It's still working on another huge table once again. Currently at about 11 million-odd rows...
02:30PM- Everything still ticking along. Some huge tables here taking up most of the time in restoring, but it's still moving.
4/8 08:25AM- Database restore continues. We're past the point where it shit the bed yesterday now, so just the waiting game left to play (all things going well).
04:25PM- Well into it again now. Probably wouldn't bank on being back tonight at this rate..
01:45PM- Restore locked up. Hitting it with a hammer didn't fix it. Have to restart.
10:10AM- Still going. The posts table alone is up to 2.7GB. Remember, that's text only.
3/8 08:10AM- Glad I didn't stay up waiting for this to finish - we're still going on the restore. No idea why it's going so slow, but we're past the point of it being worth starting again now.
2/8 10:58PM- Some cunts hacked us, deleted the database and fucked off demanding bitcoin. They can get fucked. Backup being restored from 2/8 02:00.
Database has been restoring the last couple of hours but I need to get some sleep. Will finish it off in the morning with a board software update and we'll be good to go again with the bitching about mask Karens and Free Men.
