Blog offline

My blog has been offline for about a month since Northstar Computers lost their database server. It was an odd situation in that they lost the server and all of the backups were corrupted. Ouch. It affected this site as well as many others including the ones I take care of (ILTCO, NCLTC, and NCLUG). I had a backup from last November but it turns out that since I had run the backup, the database format WordPress uses changed slightly so I couldn’t simply reload the data, I had to massage it first. I kept putting it off but now have taken care of it and all of the content has been restored thanks to my backup and the Web Archive’s Wayback Machine. ILTCO is fixed as well but I have yet to touch either NCLTC or NCLUG.
