CAF Mystery answered!!

I am soooo glad that CAF is back up and running. Jimmy Akin posted the reason why it was down for so long.

Here is an excerpt from his post:

"A mysterious event occurred three weeks ago that wiped out the forums. Period. They were gone. The nature of this event is not entirely clear, but it appears that it likely was a hacker attack on the server where the forums are hosted.

Also apparently destroyed were most backup copies of the forums. The most recent backup copy of the forums database that escaped destruction was from April, so this was what we used to rebuild. That's why the threads are the ones from five months ago. We don't see any way to restore the missing threads, so people will need to create new ones on those topics if they wish.

Also, the people who registered since the last surviving backup--about 4,000 users--will have to re-register. The registration system is now working so that they can do this."

He also said that they had not budgeted any money in the event of such an attack. So if you have any money to spare please try to donate a little to this great apostolate. They are non-profit and donations are tax deductible.
