Nuketown Database Go Boom

by Ken Newquist / June 1, 2010

You may have noticed that some recent posts were missing from Nuketown; that's because for reasons unknown, the MySQL database that drives the site became corrupted Tuesday afternoon. The database was unrecoverable, but I was able to restore from a recent (5/26) backup. As for why the database went south, I can't say though I'm planning to ping Dreamhost tech support to see if there were any database server glitches at the time.

The missing articles have been restored, but unfortunately the comments are lost. Feel free to re-post them or launch into entirely new rants/suggestions/heretical complaints.

Blog Topic: 


Star Frontiers is great. Gamma World is cool. KAMB must be in the top 20, whether or not you own it.

1) Star Frontiers is great. At least, from what I remember. I'm looking forward to digging out the rules, rolling up a character or three, and trying to run a one shot. Star Frontiers Week at Nuketown anyone?

2) Gamma World is quirky, but I only ever owned the d20 edition. Looking over the books on my shelf though, it's just not one of those that really stood out. Perhaps one of the boxed sets might have had better luck. Or Wizards 4E boxed set of the game coming out in August.

3) Never played Kobolds Ate My Baby, but I'd like to try it some day. Beer & Pretzels games are represented on my list by Risus and Paranoia.
