At long last I’ve been able to get the blog back up and running after almost a month of down time. At the end of June my webhost had a double disk failure on the server that hosts the virtual server and all the data was lost!
Thankfully I had setup a daily cron job to email a backup of all the databases. It’s taken a few weeks to get everything back up and running. First I had to get some websites I host restored, second work has been incredibly busy (50 – 80 hrs a week) and on top of that I’ve been working on a new website for a charity here in Seattle. At long last I’ve had the time to get the blog back.
This should serve as a warning to anyone who has a virtual server: KEEP REGULAR BACKUPS.
