Database backup restored

Well as you may have read, our awful host - had massive server problems and three weeks of MySQL data was lost. I found a 2 week old backup which we have restored but still its not good.

We are looking to move to a host which actually has good uptime so please tell me if you know of one.

The data we've lost is:

2 weeks of news

any members who registered after 30th July

all downloads that were added after 30th July

all the poll votes after 30th July

So we can learn something from this. Never get hosted with :P

ok but I mean that. They are hopeless. Stay away from them.

And whats more, they didnt even notify me of what happened, they still havent told me about this loss of data, the guy who owns it hasn't been online since it happened. <_>
