Corrupted links.db after upgrade to 2.0, plus ISP says nph-verify.cgi kills his CPU
After upgrading to Links 2.0, and then running the 'upgrade.pl' as said in the Links Upgrade file, my links.db (1300 links) became corrupted. It seems the Links 'upgrade.pl' program removed the 'NULL' comments, but completely re-arranged other things too.

I tried using Microsoft's Access to fix the bad link.db, and to verify in linksid.txt, but still my links.db was too corrupted. And due to my ISP having a disk quota on me, and a cron job that is copying over raw log files to my directory, I have no current backup either.

A last note, my ISP says that the 'nph-verify.cgi' script about killed his server. I find this a bit too much considering he has over 200 other hosts on his servers. My verify script ran like 2 minutes max.

In any event, my links.db file is dead and I'll have to start over.
