Looks like all inps uploaded from Dec 14, 11:30GMT have gone. These will need to be re-uploaded.

the process of fixing these will be this: we'll (the editors) give ztnet an unlikely grace period for restoration and then just delete all inp entries between

31 Dec 04 15:25:43 and Dec 14, 11:30GMT

including RedStar@jvrm.net's dragonblz recording and ending wtih diabolik's triplhnt recording. Confirmations will be to be redone as will the uploads if you still have them.

i wonder if any/all the recordings from as far back as feb '98,
are in jeopardy of being lost ?

mahlemiut told me before ,
that the .inp files are on back-up.
1 megabyte zipped...

why not just go extract from the source ,
when this sort of thing happens.


an audit is in order
