While working on the dev server, i pulled up the wrong console and deleted all production scoreboards.... :-D Suddenly, all the scores of the 100k games over the last month were all gone.
But we've got backups of all the games, players, etc, so I hacked together a script that would regenerate the scoreboards (it takes a while, with 100k games that need to be processed, approximately 5 minutes).
Lesson learned: nothing better to test your backups than a freak accident :)
