The Rolls Ethereal Get Screwed Up Again

>It looks like, sometime around last Friday, our machine overfilled again,
>and the Rolls crashed once more, wrecking the database again.
>Fortunately, things aren't *quite* so bad this time. I have a backup
>from October 3rd. I've restored to that, and I've merged in the changes
>that have been made *since* the data loss, so all entries prior to the
>3rd of October, or since last Friday, should be okay. But we've still
>lost about four weeks of data, unfortunately.
>I'm clearly going to have to get into the habit of backing this sucker
>up myself on a regular basis -- that disk partition isn't backed up by
>our systems folks. And at *some* point, I'll hopefully have time to fix
>the underlying problem. (Can anyone give me a quick pointer on how to
>detect a disk-full condition when writing out files in Perl?) But for
>now, I'm afraid that some (by no means all) folks will have to redo
>their entries. Check yours (hundreds are there and okay), and edit or
>re-add it if it's gone...
