Technical difficulties

There's been some kind of crash on the server on which this blog resides, and about a week's worth of stuff is not appearing at the moment. As soon as I can get hold of my web host, we'll see what's what.

Comments (13)

If you left a comment in the last week, I will move heaven and earth to get it back up as soon as I can.

Whew!!!! Thought I was Lost in Space for awhile. LOL The time machine took me back a week or so. Was that whirling sound from an UFO?

What I don't understand is why this stuff ever works at all.

It looks like the comments submitted after April 8 for postings that that were started prior to April 8, are also missing. But I suppose you already know that.

Yeah, it looks as though the server went down this morning, and the best the host could do so far is restore everything to a backup that was made last Sunday evening.

I was out all day today, and didn't see the problem until after the web host shut down phone support for the night. I should know more about where we stand in the morning.

The last comment I can see tonight is 7:59 p.m. on April 8.

First they came for the bees,
next they came for the hummus
and then they came for the bytes.

I think not, but other have agreed on that.

If these cats get their way, you may not have to worry about it. Well, this version at least.

Whoa, that was trippy man. It was kinda like that movie Groundhog Day, except for every day was Easter Sunday 2007 on Jack Bog's Blog. Dude, I gotta lay off the cough syrup.

So far the web host has been useless in getting the week's worth of data back. Looks like a manual restore is in order. This takes time, and some comments may wind up lost. Anyway, time to dig in.

I still have your last week's entries in my RSS reader, full text, if you just need them to copy/paste. Let me know.

Thanks, Jake. I'm o.k. on my entries. What I'm scrounging around for now are comments.

The latest update on the crash and restoration is here.
