My Blog Exploded Into A Billion Pieces
Posted on 05. Jun, 2007 by The Gimcracker in Blogging
But don’t worry, it’s back up now – minus a few of my most recent posts (namely the one about the seatbelt checkpoints).
I host my own blog, which means my database is separate from the WordPress blog sea. So, if I lose my database I’m SOL. Guess what – I lost my database. Actually, my web host lost my database and has been apologizing profusely, saying something about it not being… well, I’ll let you read what my support tech said, as he has put it so extraordinarily well:
Hi Brain, any database which does not in client’s list will be removed my our system periodically. I’ve added it to your list therefore it should not happen again.
That’s a verbatim copy/paste from my help ticket. I really love how he compliments my wit by calling me “Brain”. It sure does make me feel real good knowing people like this are taking care of my precious blog posts.. I know, I know, he’s probably not so much “dumb” as he is “Pakistani”, but it’s fun to throw jabs at someone who caused me to lose my blog for almost a week. His salutation made everything better:
Let us know if you get problem.
Will do, my main man Habeeb, will do.
Dude, i was cracking up. I’ve not yet had that type of experience with our ISP. Wow, priceless. Glad to see you’re back up and running now.
Yeah, I’ve had nothing but good things to say about Web Host 4 Life up until now. I guess I’ll start backing up my blog.
Yeah, thanks for the recommendation, “Brain.” Geez. Anyways, good to see the blog back up and running.
Man, that stinks that it lost that post, cause it totally gave me an idea for another post and now I can’t remember it. Dangit!
Was it about another stupid law? Cause there’s plenty of them to go around.
Welp. Looks like this is the only blog left that I can actually access from work without being blocked. Lucky you, Brain! Though I’m sure this one will be blocked eventually as well. Sigh…
Wow, it’s probably because mine’s the least read, and thus flies under the radar. Hopefully people don’t start reading it and you can keep it all to yourself
