    Forceflow covered this, they are temporarily disabled as Robin restores the site to new servers.
    They will be back soon.

    Quoted from robin:

    Hey everyone. Thanks a million for all the nice words in this thread. Believe me, it's much appreciated!
    Last week was really a nightmare scenario. Having moved over to a smaller Web Hosting company last year with the idea of getting more direct attention in case of network or hardware issues didn't work out quite like I had hoped.
    So what exactly took me so damn long to get back online? I had backups right? Well, for anyone who's interested in that story, I'll try to recall at some time - but let's just say I wasn't prepared for this kind of disaster. Redundancy is cool, until your datacenter catches fire.
    But of course I should have prepared for this, in hindsight. And I will be in the future as I'm working on a good DR strategy as we speak.

    So what's cooking now?
    I'm still working on getting everything back up. I got email fully working again today. Of course, being a new server and IP, Outlook immediately threw us on their blacklist. A few emails with their team and several hours later they mitigated this.
    Got email replies working again!
    Just got the Pinside maps server back online!
    Currently working on Marketwatch emails.
    And of course working on backup strategies.
    Coming back soon: topic image gallery, Pinside achievements and anything else that is temporarily disabled or that I forgot. Not much else, I think? Let me know what you are missing besides the stuff I just mentioned.
    Finally, a huge thanks to people who (offered) help/support. And my wife for being extremely patient with me as I was away most of the week and probably terrible to be around during the times I was at home. My brother Martijn of course for moral support. Forceflow. [email protected], [email protected] for relaying messages that we didn't disappear to Timbuktu with all your gif uploads. And Ed R for being funny.
    ** And all of you who donated in the past 48 hours. Amazing to see all that support **
    To be continued. good to be back!
