Welcome Back

The Hip Talk Discussion Forum was hacked a few weeks back. It has taken me a long time to fix it. The only backup I could use was way back to April 2020. All members and posts up to that date are available. Anything newer has been lost. I am sorry, but that has been the only way to get things up and running again.

The forum was hacked and I have been working on it for weeks.  I always to backups, etc.  It was so messed up that the newer backups wouldn't work.  I tried one from April 2020  - YEA YEA YEA  it worked.  I know there are a few months of missed messages and some newer members will have to register again - BUT I finally have it restored and working.  I didn't think I was going to ever get it running again.

Thanks guy and gals.  I appreciate your support.  I just did not want the old forum to die! People like hernanu have almost 4000 posts. A lot of folks have come and gone, and othesr stay to help. It is easy to forget about all the things that followed surgery when you have healed.  That's what hip resurfacing is about - getting back to an active, pain free life.

Pat, thank you, and congratulations, for getting the site up and running again. There is so much invaluable history and information on this site that it would have been a shame to lose it.
Thanks for all of your dedicated efforts.
