WE’RE SO GOOD AT WEBSITES.
Keeping it brief, then: on Sunday, I took the site down to do a bit of upgrading. Unfortunately, something went wrong, and when I tried to restore the backup, I had problems. The guy who runs the server very kindly restored his own backup for us, and we were back in business Monday evening. For a few hours. Then, irritatingly, we went offline completely – the whole server went down. Nothing to do with me, guv.
Anyway, I tried restoring my backup on the other webspace I’ve got, but I ran into problems – and frankly, it’s easier to set up the temporary blog again rather than fuck around with fixing SQL dumps. (MySQL version differences can suck my big hairy ass.) If the server comes back up by Thursday evening, then I’ll stick the proper site back online; otherwise, you’ll have to wait until Monday (presuming it’s fixed), as I’ll be away at DJ. Rest assured that there’s no data loss, so all your carefully chosen comments such as FUCK and BALLS are preserved. (The backup would be a pain to restore – hence this blog – but not impossible by any means.) And I’ll transfer all the comments here back onto the main site once it’s up and running again.
In the meantime, have fun! Or: don’t.
