the ftp is working at least.. although i think some files were never restored from previous times (please correct me if i am wrong)
i 'm going to grouch, but people running these types of projects, should make sure they have daily (at least) backups, so that data can be restored if hardware fails..
i'm happy to offer hosting to any sites that need a new home etc. can't guarantee any uptime, but i can guarantee that full backups are made daily (with up to 14 days history)
im sure bttr however will be backup shortly without a loss of data though. especially is lessons were learnt from previous failures.
