If you look closely, you’ll find that the last previous article is all the way from 2007. That’s because the server that this blog was hosted on previously got seriously zapped by a lightning strike and its hard drive got fried, and all the data about this site, since its move to wordpress got lost.
All that got lost despite having a UPS with supposedly serious surge protection and nightly backups!
Well, the UPS didn’t do its job and none of the backups that we relied on were retrievable.
Also, I’ve been quite busy, so I didn’t have the time to set this up again until now. So here we are, starting from scratch.
Well, not completely from scratch, but since we have a gap of four and half years, might as well be from scratch.
Needless to say, we had to replace several UPSs because we don’t trust the older ones anymore and a new backup policy.
Live and Learn!
