Server back in business

Oops – apparently the harddrive fried on the server that hosts my website, this blog and my email server. So I was without email (at least non-work email) for two evenings, which was a bit disconcerting. And I was a bit nervous about the provider’s ability to restore all services and files and databases. I would hate to lose the information I gathered in this blog. I do have a local copy of the static website, but I have no backups of the databases. I should probably download a backup – just in case.

After 19 hours downtime, everything was back up and running. Phew! I am just glad I don’t run anything rally critical on this service. But then, you get what you pay for, and they are pretty cheap – $60/year.
