Hi folks. Amy is Absolute Write's managing editor and my right-hand woman.
We were down for more than 24 hours because we've overloaded our database (or somesuch... don't ask me... I just do what the techies tell me to do).
I've asked her to bump all threads that are more than a year old from this board so we don't lose them. I have to optimize our database and will be deleting all threads that are more than a year old. We will then lose threads from the index Cao has created. This is the one board where I don't want to lose old posts, so this is the stop-gap solution so I can continue the database maintenance before we crash again.
I'm trying to beat the clock. Once I finish my maintenance stuff, I'll come back here and start cleaning up (deleting the old threads that didn't need to be brought back up).
