Welcome back weary traveler!
The website got ruined because the server itself got mangled. Since the backups were also hosted on the same server, they got mangled too . I've restored a very old version of the website and am attempting to fix things as I see them so things may be slightly unstable for a day or so. If you go to the site and you get a ton of errors, just try back a bit later as I'll be installing/configuring things on the server.
To prevent this happening (yet)again, a proper off-site backup solution has been implemented. I'll be buggered if i'm doing a full installation of everything again :|
