Mostly Back Online

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.

    Well if that’s not a huge fucking pain in the ass! Sorry to hear that; it really blows. Gave me some food for thought though regarding my own blog. Never really thought much about what would happen if Blogger had a brain-fart, but now I’m not real keen on the idea of losing all my history. I’m gonna look at doing my own backups p.d.q.

    Thanks for the heads up. Ride Safe.
