Quoting from the Buzz front page: http://tabletpcbuzz.com
Greetings from the revived Buzz! This is Dennis Rice subbing for Spencer for now.
So as the old saying goes, “Do you want the good news or the bad news?” I’ll start with the good news.
The Buzz is back, long live the Buzz! Obviously, since you are seeing this post, TabletPCBuzz.com is back up, and you may now continue on your way posting, interacting, and generally enjoying being a part of the Buzz community.
Now for the bad news. I had to restore the site back to May 12th to get it running! I know, Ouch. That is a lot of lost data, memberships, and great thinking lost, but there just was no other way right now. I won’t go into all the details, but a combination of corrupt SQL server data, some failed and just plain missing backups has resulted in this being the best option to get the site back up and running. We know this is painful for many of you, but please understand that the Buzz is a collection of well over 3 years of great interaction, data, and community, and will indeed recover based on the strength of its members! No looking back!
I have been in contact with Spencer the last week or so, and believe me, he is most mournful (and very stressed) of this entire situation, and sends along his apologies for the downtime. In my brief discussions with him, he has been in Austria, Croatia, Belgium, and many points in between. He has had a most hectic schedule with lots of travel and activities, so just has not been able to get to the site, and when he has, connectivity has been poor. Thus my involvement here.
Once again, apologies for what has been lost, but here’s a toast to what is still to come!
Dennis Rice (for Spencer Goad)
