Oh dear, oh dear. All it takes is for me to go away for few days (very pleasant, thank you for asking) and a corrupt mysql table makes the impressive edifice that is Nearly Legal collapse into a non-functional mess.
It has taken a little while to restore it. No, I didn’t have backups, so that is a lesson learnt, painfully. Retreiving past posts was a difficult labour, involving much swearing, but they are there now.
I’m just off to backup the database and reinstall some of the twiddly bits, but apparently it lives again.
