Send an e-mail to admin@bmwr65.org if you get the following error message:

Something bad has happened. Please inform the Admin of this forum of what you were doing when this error occurred.

Not sure what is going on but two users are generating this error and looking at their config files shows one of them hosed...  If you contact me I can get some info from you and recreate...

I mentioned this a few weeks back during some of the forum problems.  I've gotten it again a few times this last week. Maybe completely unrelated but I did find I had a screenshot shot.

It almost looks like a sad face sitting in the file....?

According to YABB codex the file that got hammered is usually caused by a server glitch.  The codex indicated that if there was a hiccup on the server while this file was open it often gets zeroed out.  I can copy a file from a different user and modify it but I need the people to contact me so I can e-mail them a new password.

I was able to pull their user data files from the last backup.  I looked for other 0 byte files and found none so this would not be what happened to Barry.  Does anybody know what his screen name was?

Strange, I don't show Barry to be an ex-member...

Bob, where did you see him as an ex-member?

Ok, Justin, I take that back.  I just looked and Barry's status is back to normal now. But I think even this morning it was still showing him as an Ex Member. And it blacked him out, you couldn't click on his name or anything.

Heh, funny stuff...

bhodgson IS Barry and I didn't look at his account until after I restored a data file.  That explains much...

I would have bet five quid that bhodgson was Barry's name. Smiley
