Obviously we'll all have to wait and see what can be restored. I feel for you Heath and Jackie. I'm sure this is a major headache for you two. I'll just patiently wait and see. Good luck!

I have enough, well some days too much, to deal with just with my little ole pc. UGH!! I hope we don't see a lot of whining about this people. Let's just be patient and let them do what they can do.

We will not be able to restore any content that is not already restored at this moment. We have spent the last nearly 36 hours attempting data recovery. There is nothing further that can be done, the missing posts were corrupted beyond recovery.

I'm sorry to hear that, however life happens and I'm sure before too long, we'll all recover. Still the best site on the net.

o well, It must be a stressfull night for you guys.
Don't worry, it is what it is and there are far more bad things in live that can happen than this one.
I'm sure a lot of topics will start again ! icon_smile.gif

Sorry you guys had all that trouble Heath. I have a little comp savvy in me and I know how it feels. I've missed this site for a couple of weeks, I felt like a drug addict looking for a fix icon_biggrin.gificon_lol.gif . But I'm glad your back up now!!!!!

Thank you Jackie and Heath for all of your hard work!! I'm sure that it won't bother anyone to simply re-ask a question about a topic they wanted to learn more about... icon_biggrin.gif

There is no place like CC. It is probably the most valuble tool I have for cake decorating.

Just got home from visiting our daughters and am thrilled THRILLED THRILLED to see CC back up and running! God bless you, Heath and Jackie, for all you have gone through. Thank you for all you have done!

I have already posted a new thread with the Throw Down rules here, http://www.cakecentral.com/cake-decorating-ftopicp-5857437-.html#5857437 Thank God I saved a copy of them on my computer!!

Yep, all that smack talk must have crashed the system.....Christi, you should be sooooooooooooooooo ashamed of yourself for that!! icon_lol.gif
Sure hope you are working hard on your TD cake..............

shhh.gif I'll tell you a secret. I haven't even started on my TD cake yet but don't tell Christi that! icon_wink.gif

It is soooooooo good to have CC back! icon_biggrin.gif

Christi




icon_surprised.gif Pull flowers off out of my garden maybe! icon_lol.gif All I have done is the cake idea narrowed down to two themes..........just can't make up my mind between "cutsie" and "serious". icon_confused.gif

They are searching for you now, RIGHT NOW! Better run to the bunny patch and hide!!!

Daughter is doing terrific thanks to modern medicine and her behaving as she should. Still having to go over everyday and help her shower but other than that she is coming along well and becoming quite efficient on her own. Still can't drive and won't for another week or two. Took her out window shopping and for a breath of fresh air all of yesterday afternoon...........she was worn out but in a good way. Dr said walk walk and walk some more so that is what we are doing. She can sit for up to 20 minutes and that is it........long road to recovery but so far a good one. icon_biggrin.gif
Heading back over there now so catch you later on............so glad to be back on CC even if it is for only one or two posts and a quick peek at all your gorgeous works out there!

Thank goodness there is another thread back about the throw down. Just when I found the first thread, and found out what this throw down was about...we lost it (greatful that we didn't lose CC). I got to post on that thread, but didn't get to read any replys after my post.

So how is it going Lea & Christi? Got your ideas already pick out? I also to have to wonder, if maybe it was all the trash talking going on between you two ladies icon_lol.gif I can't wait to see what each of you do.

Lea, so good to hear your daughter is doing better, I'll say a prayer for her... and it is so good to see back, even if it is for a few post & peeks. You'll be back full time before you know it. Tell your DD we here are sending well wishes for a fast and wonderful recover.

Oh and by the way Lea, I have notice your ticker, with each and every passing day I get more & more green with envy icon_razz.gificon_lol.gif

Good Luck! Lea & Christi in the throw down.
God Bless,
Sharon
