The Blog is Back

February 15th, 2006
 

My hosting provider, csoft.net, is moving to a new data center, and upgraded its servers over the weekend. Most of the databases had problems, and some of the older ones, including mine, were corrupted. As a result of the database problems, all of the weblogs I host were down most of the day yesterday, and mine has been down for two days.

I got a copy of the database backup from the sysadmins, and I’ve reconstructed a new database. I lost of couple of the entries I posted over the weekend, but I hope to recover those from Google’s caches.

Computers have not been kind to me the past few days. It never rains, but it pours.

Update: Only two posts were lost, for Saturday and Sunday of the past weekend. I couldn’t find copies of either in Google’s cache, but I don’t think it is any great loss.
