Basically, it's like "Great, what now?"
What the hell happened here?  And how do I get my cool sports dorothy photo back?

hey Dorothy.

You might have to wait for the possible resurrection of the TR database.

This is different.  Is there a back story?

I don't really understand any of this, but it looks like (1) TR crashed, (2) the company hosting it for us twiddled their thumbs a bit too long, (3) the weekly auto-backup took place as usual, but then a corrupted database overwrote the previous backups, so the only available backup is messed up.

Or something roughly like that.

Anyway, for a while it looked like the 8 years of old posts were gone permanently.  But our Smart PeopleTM haven't given up on resurrecting it all, and lately they've been making noises about maybe maybe having some success there.  I'll believe it when I see it.

By photo did you mean an avatar you were using ?

Because it's kind of interesting that a "site:talkrational.org dorothy" image search on DuckDuckGo brings this up as "dorothy's avatar" and it's still linkable to (hosted at) the TR domain. Google brings up a smaller version. It appears any photos posted and some that were embedded can still be retrieved by using proper search terms.



(if that's not what you meant, do you recall the filename of the photo that was uploaded? ~or~ If posted to a thread, the name of the thread? ~and~ It was uploaded to TR and not hosted somewhere else, correct?)

Oh, I see.  Thanks for the explanation.

Yes. that is the one!  Do we know each other?  And I didn't upload it, someone else did it for me if I recall correctly. In fact, someone else found it for me and suggested it as well.  Nice to know that it is accessible.  Maybe not to me because I'd have to figure out what you're talking about, but it's out there at least.  :D

Yay! I guessed correctly.

It appears our generous benefactor and local overlord has resolved the "cool sports dorothy photo" issue from behind the curtain. ravenscape has been a very busy bee lately.

And no, sadly we do not know one another. I'm pretty much a late comer to TR compared to everyone else around here. Lurked for a long time before hand though. I think maybe we spent our time in different parts of the forum, like kids who went to the same school but never had any classes together.

A pleasure to meet you though.  :)
