My sympathies and condolences on this problem!

Quick question -- which IRC channels did you go into?  If I know more
about that, I can help encourage better 24/7 coverage.

In the long run, it'll be helpful for Wikimedia to have volunteer system
administrators around the world, to increase the chances that someone is
online and available and can help you.  And maybe you can become a
sysadmin yourself!  Wikimedia Labs
https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/WMF_Projects/Wikimedia_Labs is an effort
to help grow the Wikimedia system administration community.  Check it
out.  It's in closed beta right now and it is still under construction,
but if you ask on the Talk/Discuss page for an invite, you can get one.
