Yep, my hosting company just told me that they couldn’t find my lost files in their backups and so it’s gone forever. That’s a good month and a half’s worth of work that just went poof!
Needless to say I will be backing things up every night and this will never happen again. But at least now I can get on with my life and not worry about updating our databases.
Somebody suggested I check through Google’s cache to get the lost posts. Good idea, and I’ll probably be doing just that. The only problem? No comments, and comments are really what a blog is all about. A lot of great discussion happened in October and September and now it’s lost. Sure, I can try to recreate those too, but that would take months.
In any event, we’re back online and hopefully you’ll continue to follow us, even without the lost content.
Something tells me you will.
