Server is Feeling Better, Thanks <3

Sorry for the chaos tonight folks!

We had what should have been a pretty minor crash, except for two problems:

1) I was many hours away from home when it happened, and
2) Our hosting service experienced their own issues within about 20 minutes of OUR crash happening, which prevented either me or them from doing the what should have been a very minor fix that was needed.

Some hours later, they managed to sort their issues out, and I came speeding back to run repairs as soon as it was possible.

I think everything should be up and working normally again. There does not appear to have been any data loss. :)

Thank you so much for your kind support during the outage and your wondrous patience! This community never fails to impress the heck out of me. You've drastically lessened the stress of tonight with your sweetness.

I've extended Epic Membership benefits by 24 hours, to make up for any lost subscription time. :)

As a former IT person, all I have for you is sympathy and respect. Because... oof.

Great work. <3

This scared me when I tried getting on and got a 'data error crash' and some random characters. It had shades of December 6 2018 around it. Fortunately it appears nothing was lost this time. Good work Kim! :)

... heads off to back up all my PM RPs and save updated character sheets....

It just needed a nap and a band-aid. Glad to hear all is well! Thank you for all your hard work, Kim. <3

Thanks for your hard work Kim!

@Juls: I can't say for sure this will fix it, but does that still happen if you clear your notifications cache? (Link for that is on the bottom right of the sidebar on the home page)

Thanks Kim!

One data issue I'm seeing is in the activity feeds. Other than this news notification, I see only:

"No recent activity."
