Well that was exciting.
My webhost‘s server packed a permanent sad two weekends ago.
In an ideal world, my webhost would have transferred all his files to a new server, flicked a switch, and I would barely have noticed.
Alas, in the real world, things like pouty former server providers, differing OSes, SQLs and other acronyms, and different providers’ ideas of default settings made life interesting for my webhost. For my own part, my admittedly conscientious offline backups were so much 1’s and 0’s as Restoring them was um, not as straightforward as one might expect. Hence the repeated use of this post’s title in and around Fortress Mamea for the last nine days.
Meantime I got some writing done, woot woot.
Normal transmissions have resumed.
