For some reason unbeknownst to me the site went down tonight. Worse yet I was restoring a backup (which is done nightly in case something like this happens), and I accidentally restored a backup from mid-June.
No big deal except as soon as I did that restore, my system just happened to do it’s nightly backup.
In other words, I did a backup of my June 15th backup, which overwrote my backup from yesterday.
Thankfully, due to the magic of RSS, I have all my old content. But, I lost all images for posts done from 6/15 through 7/31. I’ll find them, but they’re gone for now.
If you have a site, I highly recommend getting a professional backup service. I have a manual service to save a few bucks a month and I just sort of screwed myself.
It’s not the end of the world, but it sucks.
Thanks for your patience, and I’ll be back tomorrow, hopefully.
UPDATE – Almost all content has been restored. Comments may have been lost – which sucks because that means hundreds of them are gone. Going to keep working on it.
If anyone would like to send me a giant hug or fruit basket with kiwis and plantains, that would be awesome.
