OK, as you're painfully aware, we've lost all posts made since June 6. It appears as though our server is dying (the dying RAID controller didn't notice that a drive was dying). Long story short, the drive synced with the last known good data - dated June 6.
Sincere apologies, but there's no way the data is coming back. Looking forward, we've got new hardware en route, and PIE will be migrated over by Wednesday (I'll keep you appraised of expected downtime).
Sorry for the clusterfuck, chaps. Unfortunately, I don't think there was any way to spot this one coming. I'm just disappointed our off-site backup didn't seem to work, which I'm chasing up with the server guy.

Just to keep you appraised, the new server is online, and he'll start porting over the sites soon. Once PIE is on the server, I'm going to gut my database into separate entities (which probably means a separate database for the forum and the EVE killboard). Obviously, I'll give you loads of heads up on this, as it'll mean the board will be offline for a short while.
