I’ve recovered about 99% of the blog now, thanks to an awesome tip from Matt on restoring it from the RSS feed. I hadn’t thought of that and it was a lot easier than what I had in mind. I had to add the missing content in as backdated entries, though, so now the feed is fubar and it looks like it’s all new content.
I’ve also lost all the comments. The dashboard shows that there are 245 comments but I can’t pull any of them up, not even from the RSS feed, and even if I could I’m not sure how I’d attach them to the new entries.
Oh well, at least it’s up again.
