Well, that was frustrating.
(Very) Long story short, motherboard & hard drive running this weblog are simultaneously fried a few weeks ago. I then discover my weblog backup system stopped working earlier this year (you may have noticed the most “recent” post from April). Luckily though, I’m able to scrape off enough of the WordPress mysql database from the fried disk (thanks R-Linux!) to be able to graft it onto an existing database, permitting me to dump a snapshot and recover it completely (knock on wood).
Please let me know if you encounter any problems.
