The emergency migration team has already been having words with dream host,
to recover that data, and it *will* be recovered, and the web content
ported.

H! E! Double! Toothpicks!  One good thing is that they are willing to
compensate you for their blunders.  Hopefully, everything gets restored to
the state at the time of their deletion!  Hopefully, nothing's lost.

> Hello Everyone,
>
> As some of you are now aware the USA Games website is currently down
> do to technical problems. Last week our webhost, Skynet
> Communications, subcontracted with another company, Dreamhost, who
> took over the USA Games webhosting service, for Skynet. As a result
> last weekend our account including files, lists, etc were moved over
> to one of the new Dreamhost servers. Unfortunately, yesterday there
> seems to have been some kind of mix up regarding our account with them
> and they deleted the USA Games account from their server by mistake.
> As we had just moved to them last week Dreamhost does not have a
> backup of the USA Games account, and after the transfer was completed
> Skynet no longer has a current backup of the USA Games account either.
> This has resulted in the complete and total loss of the USA Games
> website, mailing lists, games, and everything else to do with the USA
> Games website on their end. Skynet is willing to settle for financial
> and punitive damages to USA Games Interactive, and are working with us
> to get the site back up and running as soon as possible.
>
> As matters currently stand Skynet has located an older backup of our
> website from December which they are willing to use to restore the
> account to working order. At this time they are restoring that backup,
> moving our account back to one of their primary servers, and they
> expect to have the account up and running by Friday morning Eastern
> Standard Time. Once we know the account is setup and working using
> their backups I will manually reset and reinstall the account using
> local backups prior to the move which should get the website, lists,
> etc backup and running with a more or less current version of the
> website. We are fortunate that we do have these local backups for this
> sort of emergency so the crisis isn't is bad as it could have been.
> However, since all of this will take considerable time and effort we
> don't expect to be back up and online officially until Monday
> earliest. So we would appreciate it if you guys stay clear of the
> website until we make an official announcement that things are in
> working order once again.
>
> P.S.
>
> We would also appreciate it if you would share this news with others
> who you know who are not on the Audyssey mailing list and let them
> know what is happening.

> Sincerely,
> Thomas Ward
