oh well this is not going well anyway so here is what really happened, (and trust me, i will agree with all people who say i did it on purpose);
in reply to solozzo's last post that he had not edited his post, i was trying to copy a post from the admin forum, made you ChicagoJ in which he also stated that it was changed on 11-9-2012 (the date of ChicagoJ's post) however, it ended up on the thread but as 1st post, so i removed it, unaware that since it had now de facto become the 1st post (how that is possible is well beyond me so dont ask) it's removal would lead to thread removal, which happened, of course that is irreversible as there is no backup of the thread limited resources make that i dont run a daily or hourly backup of the forum but a weekly, which has not ran but does run today as it did last week (3163522893 2014-03-03 17:02 pdbackup.sql) but as you see it is sizeable (3Gb for a dump)
so i lost the thread, big deal yes, but as they say, stuff happens. and whlist i am sorry, please feel free to rehash or regurgitate, or just continue like it is still here.
I am very sorry but there is nothing i can do to make it right and well those who believe me do, those who don't don't.
Sometimes i wonder why people are even paying for VB software, as to be honest, a not losing this until cache is dumped is not to much to ask for but it has not changed in VB since 2002 i am told by VB.
Since the thread does not exist in the backup i can not reload the data that exists still in cache and in the database, but has lost its headers back into the forum, had the header existed in there there would be a (very difficult) way of recovery.
to keep the conversation going, sollozzo you lost part of your memory, see the remarks by ChicagoJ and...(i will add that in once i carefully copy & pasted it away from the forum)

He did change it. I was a bit disappointed by the original version but didn't have time to say so. He's too good for that.
