I'm still waiting to see if they can restore mine, have built a new one temporarily, not had any email offering any compensation yet.

Re: Update email address FAIL
Probably overloaded! I sent one a couple of hours ago and so far it's not been bounced back, but hey, they've probably run a script to process email and deleted it :) (Smiley face as I'm trying to stay positive over this shambles)
NOTE: Still not had an update on my server tho....
Email from 123-reg.....
I am writing to you to explain what happened to some VPS services on 16.04.16. This email is to detail what our steps have been. I am committed to open communication with all customers and would like to take this opportunity to explain in detail.
So what happened to some services? As part of a clean-up process on the 123-reg VPS platform, a script was run at 7am on 16.04.16. This script is run to show us the number of machines active against the master database. An error on the script showed 'zero-records' response from the database for some live VPS. For those customers, this created a 'failure' scenario - showing no VM's and effectively deleting what was on the host. As a result of our team's investigations, we can conclude that the issues faced having resulted in some data loss for some customers. Our teams have been and continue to work to restore. What have we done? We have been working with an extended team of experts and have left no stone unturned. Our teams have been working long into the night to restore as much as we possibly can. We have also invested in external consultants to recover, in the best way possible.
We have recovery running on the VPS servers and some are restoring to new disks. We have also begun copying recovered VPS images to new hosts and we expect some VPS to be back up and running throughout the night and in to tomorrow.
I loaded the factory image onto my Nexus 7 (2012) and so far (touch wood) it's been absolutely fine. I've come across a couple of apps that I reinstalled that don't appear compatible with Lollipop, but thats it so far.
Actually, in a previous episode, Rise of the Cybermen, when the doctor and Mrs Moore were in the underground chamber and Mrs Moore lobs the EMP at the cyberman, the doctor reveals the emotional inhibitor under the cyberman's chest plate.
Personally I liked the episode, granted it was a bit daft, but the best bit for me was when the Doctor saluted Leftbridge-Stuart and he hung his head.
I'm going to buy one for the geek factor, but I'm not worried, my tinfoil hat will protect me.... :)
Re: 19 meters you say?
Agreed it is a regulatory issue, however they did talk about fitting cabs outside the exchange to host the VDSLx kit, but there seems to be no more information on when or if this will ever happen.
It would be nice to see BT bring their current infrastructure up to date before considering faster tech.
What about considering your EO customers!
I live for the day that they can actually deliver these kind of speeds on EO lines...
I have a fibre cab outside my house, but my line terminates in the exchange, no super spangly fibre like speeds for me :(
I know EO lines are the minority, but please don't forget us :)
They can work out how to enable Exchange Only lines at the same time! No fibre for me :( Not yet anyway LOL
Yep, got the news this morning, will stick around for the moment, I am no fan of Sky either and I bet you can be sure that Sky won't continue BE's excellent routed subnet (Muti-Static) IP's on their network. Just got moved over to the new core network as well!
Sadly despite my local exchange being FTTC enabled, I am an EO line, so no fibre for me for the foreseeable future :(
BE worked well, great support and very few problems IMHO, Sky is overloaded at best, adding another 500,000 customers is suicide without shoring up their infrastructure (although the rate of calls to the BE cancellation department did shoot up this morning, so there may not be many left come the sale! :) )

980,000 at the moment, I've managed to reconnect, but for how long, who knows!
I dare someone to actually name their product 'The Fondleslab' I know it's el Reg's name, but by christ I'd buy one :)
they can't be bothered to roll it out everywhere!
I live in an Virgin Media area, only they can't be arsed to feed it down my street.
Nice to see
That the big ole fat cats got a paycut.....not.............
I feel sick.....That is all
I keeeeel youuuuuuuuu!!!!
Sorry, just watched Jeff Dunham...couldn't resist, I'll get me coat.....
That they can't get their arses in gear and upgrade the analog network in my area in Southampton!!
I'd probably go for a bundle package if they did.
It only seems to affect machines running the 8.7i engine and XP SP3.
Fortunately we had not rolled out 8.7i to everyone yet, so only a small subset of our machines were affected.
I found the easiest solution was to copy the dat files from a 8.5i machine with the 5957 dats and also take a copy of svchost.exe.
Boot machine normally, when you get the DCOM is shutting down crap, open a command prompt and abort the shutdown, open viruscan console, turn off Access protection then go and shut down the Mcafee services.
Copy the dats into C:\Program Files\Common Files\Mcafee\Engine.
Copy svchost.exe to c:\Windows\System32
Reboot, job done :)
Rather him than me!
But what the hell, just donated and thats his target met :) Damn good cause!
What a complete and utter load of bollocks...
RHELS a measurement of time with the Daleks..?
Next the thing with have suckers on the front and go round blasting out exterminate before destroying a target!
Mines the one with the sonic screwdriver in the pocket and the geeks guide to Dr Who.....
at least it'll do away with those rip off bedside phones they have!
How the hell is the shark supposed to press the button???
What is the airspeed velocity of an unladen sparrow?
Mines the suit of armour....
Wouldn't be so bad if...
Their website actually worked!!
I spent over two hours last night trying to book a flight to Dublin for 14 people, every time I entered all of the passenger names and clicked next, the damn thing kept timing out..
And easily disabled by...
Shooting out the lens of the camera... :)
Oh yes!! Absolutely loved that show, it will be interesting to see what Sky can make of it.
It's not in my area, they still have analogue down my street!
"or areas needing something that makes a lot of noise and has pretty blinking lights."
Yes, I remember those, my boss had me build one and shove it in a rack, it was just a panel with lots of flashing leds, he used to call it the 'Impresser'
Never told any clients what it was, but it did look good in the rack and they seemed to be impressed with it :)
Oh crap, I've got 4 of em and a couple of Masters as well......
*straps himself into the wheely chair*
I still say....
that Catherine Tate is a very poor choice for the companion.
Her acting performance in the earlier episode left a lot to be desired.
As if they didn't make enough out of it already.
It's all part of the Lizard Army's plan to take over the world, somewhere to control all their mind control robots and taser fitted robots!
