Oh, sugar! Sysadmin accidently deletes production database while fixing a fault

Haven't done it in a production environment but have trashed my own web server a few times when the upgrade path wasn't being nice and decided a clean install was a safer bet. Did take a backup of one particular table prior to trashing it though as it contained the guestbook for my brother's memorial page (no way I was losing that data)
