So the blog is back, but not back-back. They couldn’t restore the data. Or perhaps they didn’t even have it to restore, even though they said they did originally…And that db dump/backup is what contains my previous posts.
So I moved things to a new server. I’ll update the technical details in another post but for now I need to figure out when I can re-type and re-post the blog entries that were my most-searched and viewed. But hey, I have time.
In the meantime, remember to make your own backups. Don’t just rely on cloud services or other servers/services. Periodically make your own.
