    Were the OpenSuse Forums hacked on 8/27?

    Since I have a "lifetime" ban by OpenSuse, I can't ask them directly...but this is an interesting announcement on their site:

    "Due to an unexpected issue, we've had to restore our database from a few days ago. As a result, if you posted in the past couple days, your post may not presently be in the forum.
    Be sure to check to see if your post is missing. If so, feel free to repost. Apologies for the inconvenience."

    Believe me, they had great fun at Ubuntu's expense last month, so I guess karma is always a btch.

    I made fun of a guy's wife....I promise *not* to that here! But the guy signs his name "DD", it was way too obvious, I guess!

    Turns out this guy died and his funeral was 8/31 in Denmark...
