(Re)mix the web by netvibes.com

Netvibes took their mission statement very literally yesterday with our Public page of the Central Medical Library.
The Universe, http://www.netvibes.com/cmb was -at one moment- almost empty and at least half of our tabs were gone (as in deleted).
I got the biggest scare of 2009 so far ...

After a few minutes, and re-loading the site several times, logging out and -in again, all 150+widgets appeared to be listed in the Tab "Lost &Found".
They really mixed my web up ....
That was sort of a relief. I emailed Netvibes Support and started to make emergency repairs, but made sure I got copies of that Lost & Found tab first.
Next morning after a bad night sleep, all tabs were restored, including my newly made repairs.
The response of Netvibes Support was received very soon:

Dear Netviber, This was due to a desynchronization of your public page with our server. If it happens again, do not move any module and use this url: http://www.netvibes.com/?reset_cache=1 For any other problem, message or suggestion, do not hesitate to contact us, we will answer you as soon as possible. Best regards, A*****
It is good to know. Now you know.
