We’re Back

After about sixteen hours of being down, a database which crashed has been repaired and the blog is back up! If it took much longer I might have gone into serious blog withdrawal.

    Oh, I wondered what the deal was!

    It was a bit scary. My last full back up was about a week ago and lots of stuff gets posted here in a week. I do have copies of the posts since then, but it would be a hassle to make sure I put them all back in the same order (including leaving blanks for cases where a post got deleted before posting) to make sure that links to posts worked correctly. Fortunately everything could be fixed.

    It was also a bad day to be down as there were links from Salon’s Blog Report, The Nation, and USA Today bringing in lots of traffic. In the morning it looked like it could turn out to be a record day, but in the end the stat counter makes it look like an unusually slow day.
