Recent Outage

Apologies for the OZ outage over the weekend. Things appear to be working normally now, but everything posted since June 30 has been lost, meaning we no longer have the posts or comments for the recent Allison Baver interview as well as the announcement of Mathieu Turcotte's retirement. With luck, we'll be able to restore these, but it's probably a longshot. Here's what OZ's hosting provider explained:

I was able to restore OhnoZone.net, but I ended up using a backup from June 30. The reason was because the server apparently crashed during the backup of your account on July 6. The backup process had overwritten your backup from July 5 and new backup contains 0 bytes.

I have never seen this happen before.

I am looking for a July 5 backup file for your account, but I haven't found it yet. In the interest of not being down for an extended period of time, I restored what I had available, which is the June 30 backup.
