    I suppose you believe in cosmic expansion as well... and all those other deriviations from billion year old data,
    sheesh! how can you tell me the state of the universe with info that is over 10 billion years old?
    next prize award : state of universe today not 10 billion years ago... what say you?

    I said "IF" there was.... blah blah blah....
    those that recieved a the payment for the sale would be the ones that could take destruction of good will seriously... If there was a contract for such... and I bet you Bells didn't get a cent...

    Dude, seriously?

    I actually squirmed in embarrassment for you.

    And the only person who would have received a cent from the sale of this forum back then was Porf, since he was the sole owner of this site.

    It was a several years ago and he sold it to the current owners.

    I do not know how much, nor do I want to know how much. It is none of my business.

    Of course, Porf created this website and then sold it just so that this roll-back could happen and we could "get QQ"..

    Firstly it may have been sold a couple of times...
    Secondly, if you have ever sold an online community board before you would know that it is the key people that give the forum "good" will" value. The software is virtualy worthless with out the "good will"

    The membership base and the key management are the good will... and the good will makes up most of the sale price.
    Balerion was driving a wedge right through all of that as far as I could tell because he was posting ridicule and "slander" of key management with impunity and doing it in the "forum decline thread" of all places.
    Off topic and vitriolic witch hunt for Reiku apparenty under a disguise as Aethelwulf that was allowed to run for over 18 pages* in a thread that was to discuss the decline in forum membership. sheesh!

    So to me it was obvious that key management had been compromised.

    most likely IMO,
    evidencial item #3
    It wasn't a roll back because a rollback [ data base back up install] takes about 20 minutes plus testing.... in this case it was like 20+ hours of someone trying to restructure the data base tables.
    They need to realise that you do not restructure a database while members are posting..because it screws you over big time....
    The sheer fact that that post remains in the cesspool tells you straight away it was a data base restructure, selective and not a global rollback... no doubt there will be other posts that will also demonstrate my point if we bothered to do a proper assessment.

    The reason why the data base played up and was doing weird things was because vital tables were being played with...whilst the site was still live.

    Most likely IMO, The attempted manipulation of the data base failed, and the contigency plan of going for the whole rollback idea came forward but it was too late as the scheduled back up Cron Job probably caught the errors due to failed manipulations. [ I have been caught with this little doozy myself a few times... it's not nice, when you realise you have accidently corrupted your only life line] [Normally a site is taken off line for datatbase restructuring]

    GoDaddy [registra] and other servers normally have a 24 hour back up cron happening constantly. This means that Sciforums would have been able to restore ex server a back up with in about 60 minutes if needed. Loss of data may have been less that 24 hours worth. In fact it would be almost impossible to expect exactly 24(+-)1 hour, worth of loss.
    All data points, dates, days, numbers, posting content etc can be changed in the data tables as well...[ but it is a real pain to do and very very tedious work.]

    Unless they are really silly and did not have a "back up" cron running and a restructure was all they could do.
    You gotta ask the obvious question;
    Why would you spend 20+ hours down time when you only need to do a restore using a back up MySql database and spend less than 60 minutes offline? [ can be done in 3 minutes if you really push it... I have done this many times]
    Data base resets can be cron jobbed to occur every 10 minutes if you want... [ie. Demonstrator sites for users to play with and then reset to default, after they leave]

    also , this version of VB Bulletin forum software is pretty good when it comes to "hacking" and database penetration attempts, as far as I know there are no known major issues presently that haven't been updated for.

    The only theory I have about you is that you possibly need to get out more and possibly seek some professional help.

    This might be the funniest thing I've ever read!! This is a first for me; I've never been accused of being a part of a conspiracy! AWESOME.

    I mean, what a fucking lunatic. WOW.

    I suspect someone cracked Cold Fusion and published the results here! The Forum was then cyber attacked by the oil companies to stop it getting out and a hit team took out the offending scientist. Either that or someone spilled coffee over the server.
    I like the first scenario better! Who are you working for James?

    Little more than dishonest smokescreens for your ignorance, much like Kent Hovind. You say 'peer review' but the person who decides whether someone has presented a mathematical proof is you. That isn't 'peer review' since you are nowhere close to being a peer of a competent mathematician. This is another example of you being dishonest in how you represent things. The standard meaning of 'peer review' is the submission of work to a journal for review by researchers. You lack any of the necessary mathematical grounding to review even the most remedial of mathematics. Furthermore, since you have a vested interest in this 'challenge' you are biased to reject any and all things presented to you. That way you can go around claiming no one has met your challenge, just like Kent Hovind goes around saying no one has met his evolution challenge. His evolution challenge isn't even about evolution itself, rather it's a mish-mash of misunderstandings on his part, just as your 'challenges' simply show you don't even understand what it is you're claiming is wrong.

    Your behaviour is becoming more and more erratic. Threatening to track down everyone I've ever said a bad thing to online and see if I made them physically ill as a result? Claiming there's a forum wide conspiracy against you that the roll back is a cover for? Various challenges which are so transparently dishonest it's laughable? Fabricating out of thin air all this nonsense about contracts and moderators being paid?

    Every single problem you've ever claimed is in maths or physics has actually been a problem with your understanding. Unfortunately your wilful ignorance 'just won't go away'.

    @Alphanumeric, just think!
    While you are here trying to stifle and censor discussion about anything to do with SRT or Zero Point Theory, there are other online forums flat out dealing with it.... are you sure you are in the right place?
    am I doing a good job or what...?
