Aw man, that sucks... the wordt nightmare of every webmaster. I hope you can manage to recover quite a bit of data and am sure you will be up & going strong in the near future. Don't let it bring you down! ~sn00t

Working on it, bigger problem than expected (MySQL error 1005 if that rings a bell) which I am really struggling to solve. I have a old backup of Dec 27th but cannot import it. I can't even create new tables or do any SQL query. On what happened... database was found empty of all tables on April 9th... and a suspect 'core' file in the root of the Karoshi forums.
Even with daily backups I think I would have the same problem... (but does not stop me from being more cautious in the future - I'll set up a cron job).
Checking now with host for database backup / restore.

It's back up ... however most recent forum post is December 16th, 2007... sorry about this and as I said before I'll make more frequent backups from now on.
I'm sorry this happened but I don't have a better solution.

Sadly, the site lost all the latest files uploaded there. Actually also my super game for the 2K competition went lost.
I uploaded it just few minutes before the crash.
(it was a 3D FPS inspired to doom, but with better graphics)
The chance wanted my HD at home to crash as well, so my sources and files went lost too...
None will see it, and I do not think will ever be able to recode it....

Based on the description of your game I think its safe to award you first price and then the rest of us can fight to be runner up.

Artrag, what was the exact name of the file. We can surely recover it. Only the sql database was affected by the crash, not the files on the server.
