Thanks, Belg and Louie and everyone who had a part in restoring! And shame on the old hosting company.
I expect to pass through this world but once;
any good thing therefore that I can do, or any kindness that I can show to any fellow creature, let me do it now;
let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.

The worst thing about all this is that we can't call this "The Great Crash of 2014" due to the ambiguity.

Thanks for all the effort.

Outrageously bad service. I don't know, I guess shit happens, but, Christ, you had one job (the hosting company of course, not you)!

Old hosting company = a couple of hippies running it from their mother's garage. ;)

Hey maaaaan, their mom is righteous and bakes cookies.  ;)

I almost lost a few hours of writing from my last airplane flight because like an idiot I didn't put my laptop back on a wifi and sync the files. That panic was nothing compared to what was lost here again. Thank god for the 2012 backup or we would have lost everything forever. That said, I got crashplan this year, and I'm extra thankful for that at this moment.

Is it just me misremembering or was the first crash of 2014 worse than this? In my mind, if there was a "Great Crash of 2014", that was it.

They were both equally bad but the lesson from the first crash was applied, i.e. don't waste time trying to recover threads, just restore the database, even if it is from 2012.

So, I wanted to check that it's backing up and YAY we have a winner!



Generally every 8 hours, and I don't think I've heard any lag reports so we're good.
