Whew! Last month I had a catastrophe befall the server that hosted this site for almost seven years. I had to recover the data from the hard drive, mount it to a new PC, load MySQL, PHP, phpmyadmin and then export the blog’s MySQL database for import to a Webfusion hosted database.
It was a painfully long recovery made much worse by my being lazy. I am happier than hell now that this blog is hosted somewhere other than my own machine. Uptime will no longer be a problem and the kids can destroy and computer they see fit to lay hands on without interrupting my damn blog!
This downtime cost me some serious search engine rankings. No worries though. If blogging stops being more than just fun I better be making some serious money off it.
