Hopefully, most of you got my communiqué about the recent problems with EHNet. It is official by now - everything was lost. I really am sorry about it, and we lost a lot too. Yes, I know you're all upset about losing the MBs. We went through a whole thread about this on the new message board. It doesn't help to whine and complain, it won't get you your posts back. Instead you should be thanking AbsoluteK for getting the MBs back up so quickly and working as hard as possible on them.

If you've lost any data or e-mail, contact myself and AbsoluteK ( We will try to rectify the situation as soon as possible.

So where do we go from now? Well, we rebuild. IOA Leeson is working on several possible designs for the new site, which will be completely hand-coded by us. IOA Turtle is working on designing certain core features of the site already, and we hope to integrate them this week. We are working as hard and as fast as we can, please don't come up to us and ask "when will the site be done?" - it only puts us more on edge. I've said everything else I have to say in my communiqué about EHNet, which you can find on the temporary IO site. If you are confused about the current links, you can find some useful ones below.
