From that top link:

Due to a configuration mishap, this year's worth of posts are gone. Database backups were also not working correctly for this forum due to that configuration problem. Sorry about that.

Nice.

Yep. BTW, that topic is still available in Google cache (better use that "id=987" link, it has a more freshly cached version).


Well, a Google cache version seems to be lost too. For anyone interested, the first three posts of that topic are available at the Web Archive: http://web.archive.org/web/20120716201938/http://forum.bittorrent.org/viewtopic.php?id=987
