The British Caning Society Is Offline

The server hosting BritishCaningSociety.com suffered a catastrophic failure at some point during the night on 05/05/2017. When i tried to restore it, a large number of backups proved to have failed as well despite no errors being reported. This means that the newest version of the database i've got is dated 23/03/2017 which in turn means that over a month of posts and private messages will be lost if i rebuild from that.

At this point i'm really not sure what to do; the United Kingdom's Digital Economy Act already had me extremely worried (and the Investigatory Powers Act did absolutely nothing to help on that front) to the point where taking the BCS offline was already an option so, if i were a supersticious girl, i'd consider this to be a sign...

In the meantime i can be contacted at verity [dot] lambert [at] gmail [dot] com if anyone has thoughts...
