If you need me to parse out the files I saved and sent you, let me know. Manipulating data is fun! (Yes, I am a geek.)

Well, if you could send me the threads as an Excel table or some kind of delimited text file that'd be awesome.... but don't do it if it's too much work.

The columns I need would be:

post id, post time, user_id, post subject (almost always blank), and post_content.

Since I'm not at work today, it would be more fun than cleaning house, which is what I'm supposed to be doing. I'll tackle the Torturethon threads first.

that really sucks! i'm sorry you guys have to go through such annoyances to get things working again. and i'm sad that i'm back to being a tourist, but oh well.


Everyone's post counts are a bit off now.  Obviously the lost posts won't count, but neither will the ones that were restored.  Sorry.  :(

But I did set you back to "summer resident" status.

Thanks. everyone.

We got about 500 posts back today from the personal backup I had.  Not what y'all were hoping for, I know.  But still, some people got their birthday threads back and their CD and film counts updated a little bit.

RVA, once again you are, indeed, the dog's bollocks.

Thanks for all your time and effort on this. An exacto knife to to the scrote of whomever was responsible at ProbstBaby - or whatever the hosts are called - but immediate hospital care in view of their new pricing offer
