One of the developers deleted a directory from postgress's data
directory. (He mistakenly believed this was "just like mysql" where 
he could drop the database like that)

At any rate, now postgres just dies when it's attempting to 
start, how can I fix this? I've never done anything this stupid
so I have no idea where to look?

Thank you so much for the help

Sincerely,

Will LaShell
