Website Down, More Detail

I apologize for the very terse message I previously posted, but I wanted to 
get something out quickly.

Earlier today I was modifying the database that powers most of the AMSAT 
website to include new features.  During that process I executed a command 
that should have deleted the data that was under construction and 
accidentally deleted the entire database.  This crippled the website and 
caused errors to such an extent that I felt I had to take the website 
off-line until we can restore the database.

The database is backed up daily, however this being Sunday it will take 
more time than normal to restore because the IT team that handles the 
backup and restore is not presently on site.  Paul is in the process of 
contacting them.

This error does not affect the AMSAT Store, which is kept on a separate 
server with a separate backup process.

I apologize profusely for any inconvenience this may have caused.  I will 
post another message when the site is restored.
