Blog is back!!

Just a quick note to apologize to everyone who reads this blog or subscribes to the feed. We have been offline for the last 4 days due to a hosting issue, basically the old host skipped town.

I have moved host, restored my backups (over 400mb of compressed data) and finally got things back up.

Unfortunately I have temporarily lost some of the data for this blog, it will be coming back over the next few days.

Oh and you might see a few duplicate posts coming through your feed reader as things settle down.

  1. backup backup!!! hehe. tisk tisk.

    ive actually been thinking of launching my own blog soonish. what are you using? just wordpress?

  2. Yes I am using wordpress, fantastic platform!

    I have had several challenges getting things back. First up determining that the old hosting provider had in fact skipped town – 2 days. Finding a new hosting provider – 1 day, getting my backups (450mb) back onto the new provider – 1 day, actually restoring the mySQL databases and testing – 1 day. The restoration was not as easy as I thought, thinking of a blog post about it. The final challenge has been my lack of backup schedule.
