Database Disaster

Earlier today, I accidentally borked my database. Fortunately, I was able to get a backup copy of my tables from August 5, so I only lost a couple of posts. Thanks to Google’s cache (and my own memory, bad as it is), I was able to repost the missing articles. Whew!

The irony of the situation is that what I was trying to do was to clean up my database tables in preparation for converting all my current blog entries over to WordPress. Repeat these words: “Always backup first. Always backup first. Always backup first…”
