Did the numbers for this list get reset?


#1

Hi –

I just noticed that my last post to ruby-talk has mail-count number
95.

Did something get reset?

Somehow a file contains sequence number corrupted on 2005-12-15
19:27:58 JST. I just restored.

Old articles 1-112 were lost? Seems blade has lost them too.

Ugh… probably because they were “overwritten” by the mis-numbered
articles.

Hopefully someone has backups… I imagine they are rather
historically important…

I should have backups of all these articles. I can check when I get
home tonight.

.oO(can this be exploited by faking the X-Mail-Count number?)

Possibly… it looks like the listserv doesn’t strip existing
X-Mail-Counts, though it puts them second.

(the archives are okay, since they ignore all but the first)

I do have backups of all these files, as .htm files that I used
‘net/http’
to get from http://www.ruby-talk.org/cgi-bin/scat.rb/ruby/ruby-talk/nnn.

If anyone needs them to do the restore, I’ll .zip them up and send them
to you.
