Does a wedding planning CMS exist?

I know of many online plan your own wedding sites, but what I'm looking for is one which I can host on a server of my own, probably some sort of PHP/MySQL based affair that will manage things like the RSVP, menu choices, gift lists etc, and also allow me to send emails to specific groups such as "Family of Groom, Family of Bride, Bridesmaids, Catering Staff" etc etc.

PHPBB Auto User Pruning - how do I undo it?

I run a forum where we discuss open source book scanning technology. Many users visit only occasionally. In a recent update, PHPBB enabled a feature called "Auto User Pruning", and it deleted users who had not logged in for 24 months. Two Thousand Users were deleted. It did not delete their posts, and their account names are still attached to their posts. Please help me restore these users from my database backups or via some other method.

Fixing an unreasonably slow MySQL query

Query and Explain output here. Query must be executed 4022 times, each with a different Strip_ID, while the script processes, adding 4+ minutes to what would otherwise be a ~90-second task. I have (separate) indices defined @ Parent_Table and Parent_ID, in addition to the table's primary key on an auto-incrementing ID. Adding combined indices for those two fields (in each order, just to be safe) did not change MySQL's analysis of the query or improve execution speed. [more inside]
