Hi guys,

You may have noticed that Valhalla was down yesterday and that now, data seems outdated. Unfortunately our server died and we had to relocate. And unfortunately due to poor sysadmin work, we had to restore from an old backup for now. We'll continue trying to recover the lost data, but in the meantime many users may have lost their accounts. Feel free to re-register (since data recovery may not be possible anyway). We're sorry for the inconvenience.

Let me know if you notice anything broken on the site. There are a few things which I expect are broken (like the SQL challenges).

Regards,
ynori7

Well, that's annoying. I got 100% on debug stuff.

Can you just mark it all as done. I can probably find my other answers somewhere.

I fixed your stuff.

If anyone can find their profile in Google cache then I'll fix it. For example: http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:https://halls-of-valhalla.org/beta/user/taw

Note I recreate my account with maf-ia instead of mafia and I already revalidate some... if you can merge everything in maf-ia I would appreciate (because I prefer maf-ia login)

thanks

Good news. I managed to recover enough of the old server to get back most of the data we lost from the database, so old forum posts, code submissions, registrations, challenge completions, etc should all be back now. For any users who re-registered, their registration date is also fixed.

Let me know if you notice any issues. This unfortunately had to be a manual merge since there's new stuff in the database now making it so I couldn't just replace the whole thing with the old dump.
