As most of you will have noticed, AusBT was down over the weekend due to an unexpected server problem (well, aren't they all 'unexpected'?). Thanks to solid work across the weekend by Sid, Luu and Rahul the site is now back on its feet - but due to a borked backup file we lost all of last week's content, including community posts. We're really sorry about this.


The server issue has been fixed so we're slowly reloading the articles published across that week, but at this stage it appears that the community posts are beyond recovery. Again, our apologies on that score. And we've now got a 'belt and braces' backup system in place to prevent borked backup files creating this problem in the future.

From one tech head to another I feel your pain and wish you all good luck.

And backup, backup, backup and backup.

The new layout is awful!...  The site was amazing up until last year (new management, "editor"??)

Eli:

* no changes to staff or management at all. Changes to the website made to move AusBT forward.

* if there's specific feedback you'd like to offer, please feel free to start a separate thread this this discussion group (easier for everybody to keep track of things that way).
