And.. we are back

I need to apologize deeply. I made a huge mistake. I didn't realize that the backup system was not working properly. So the daily backups I though are being done, were in fact weren't happening.

One day the hard disk died and I was left with no backup for AotW. I tried to send the damaged disk to a data rescue facility, but after inspecting the hardware, they told me there is little chance to save the data unfortunately.

I only had a local backup that had about 85% of the content. This was put back on the new hard disk. Sorry for all the lost comments and dozens of great ads. I will try to repost them along with the new ones in the next month or so. I also lost the data of about a thousand registered users. So, if you can't login, please re-register. I've learned my lesson, I've set-up off site backups now daily.

Thank you for your kind understanding and patience.

Today is the first time I can access the site since the big adsoftheworld.com crash.
I'm quite surprised that the forum seems to be active since a week or so - I only got the default server page until now.

Sorry, the domain www.adsoftheworld.com was misconfigured. I only noticed it now, a NY CD emailed me about it. the domain without www was working for about a week now.
