    I accidentally messed up my user.tab file and restored it from backup, not realizing a new user had registered since the last backup I was using.

    He had made some posts but now a different user has the user number.

    Is it just a simple matter of getting all the posts by the old sender_userid from the header and rewriting with the new userid as long as from matches the old username?

    Thankfully he really only posted in one or two fido echoes but I also want to make sure any personal netmail is transfered over.

    Thanks,
    Nigel

    So what you'd you do your user.tab file?

    I was trying to change the classic default shell to "eotl" for all users and looks like I screwed up the find/replace somewhere. It worked for a couple of test accounts then about a week after I got a user email me that he couldn't login and when I used uedit all sorts of things were messed up.

    That's when we had a short conversation on IRC about updating the shell using js instead. A much safer method and easier to implement than I thought it would be.

    you should put code in your login to do a check for their shell and
    change it if needed.
