Dave!My blog died last night.

And a part of me was wanting to let it go.

That lasted about fifteen minutes. Then I started freaking out at the prospect of eight years of Blogography being flushed down the toilet. So I started going back through all the steps I took to upgrade my database to see if I could figure out what went wrong. When that didn't pan out, I started pouring over my backups to see if I could reconstruct the data. No luck. So I gave up.

Today I looked at it on my lunch hour, but gave up again. Then after work I finally called tech support.

An hour later, everything was back to normal.

Just in time for me to start packing my suitcase...

    I lost my entire 8 years of database earlier this year. My heart felt broken…for about 5 minutes. Now I can’t say I care.

    I do care, however, about your blog and I would have been devastated if it ever went away. I can honestly say yours is my all time favourite blog ever. Ever ever ever. I do not kid.

      And I will never forget how you saved my blog when I was going to have to shut it down because I couldn’t afford the traffic! I’m glad you like it considering it’s your fault it’s been around this long!

    Awww… that really WOULD have been tragic! I am not good about commenting always, but try to always read. 😉

    Thank God & thank you for calling tech-support to bring back my most favorite blog…My friend, how could the other part of yours let 8 years of working hard go like that….Are you bored or done with writing? Here is what I am gonna do–you let go-I let go 🙂
