Visual SourceSafe missing LAN option 

One night I was working very happy at 3am from home when my project started to shows VSS error about the database does not exist anymore, I thought is time to go bed I don’t have time for this..Next day I woke up thinking I just had a nightmare about my SourceSafe db was gone…but It wasn’t a dream, the db was actually gone, at least totally inaccessible from VS, I was able to see the files directly on the server but I was unable to see it from VS, I tried reinstall update path VSS nothing works, until I found an option in visual studio (that magically changed itself) that was setting VSS Internet by default, here is the screenshot:

Just changed it back to Visual Source Safe and everything went back to normal.
