Hej everyone, thanks to some very generous & helpful folks (you know who you are) we’re back! :) I’ll try to keep this post as short as possible to get you into the loop about what’s happening and what’s going to happen next.
After technical difficulties with our server were getting worse every day (to the point were we had to manually fickle around in MySQL databases several times a day just to keep the site running) we decided to make a clean cut and switch to a better (yet cheaper) server. Alas almost everything that could have gone wrong did indeed go wrong and we were left without access to the files on the old server. We do have a backup but… the archive is corrupt because the old server apparently choked once again in the very moment the last backup was transferred.
For Blog Readers
It hurts to do this but it looks like we’re left with no other choice than starting from scratch and leave behind the last seven years of content. I will try to save whatever I can from the broken backup but I can’t promise anything. To a fresh start then, hey? If you saved any substantial amount of pictures from the old blog, please let us know!
The design and setup of the blog is by no means final, I’m still in the process of setting everything up, I just didn’t want to let you guys wait even more. When everything is done this site should look better than ever, give you more pretty stuff to look at and new ways to interact with us and each other.
For Board Users
Losing the blog content sucks. Losing what you created on the board over the years sucks even more. I’m incredibly sorry about this. The board will be back up very soon and on the positive side of things you’ll get the newest version of the board & chat software right away. We’ll keep you updated on Twitter!
For Bloggers & Webmasters
I’ve decided to start with a clean sheet regarding our link list. If you have a queer blog or site and want us to link you just put up a link to us (milkboys.net now, not .org!) and send us your link here. We’ll get in touch with you if we have further questions.
And last but not least, please note everyone that our new URL is milkboys.net so please update your bookmarks, feeds, link lists etc, thanks!
