So far I have backed up the forum database here three times. I'll post here whenever I back it up. If it seems to have been a while since the last back-up, post in this thread to remind me. This way we won't lose 5 years of posts the next time the site crashes.

The most recent backup is now today, 5 May 2012, about 5 minutes before this post. If the forums crash right now, this thread will not be restored. :(

Also, back up your own hard drives!

I wonder how big the size of data for each backup you do, Joe.

Gee ... that's not as big as I thought ... But still space consuming if done regularly :/

Remember it's just the raw database, not the forum software, no graphics, attachments or anything.
