As Rip Van Winkle Re-Awakens…

Okay, so you may have noticed that my prior blog post was a really, really long time ago.  Why?  Well….

We hosted my blog on a server here in the office. I made the mistake of not mirroring the hard drive on that server.  My net admin made the mistake of thinking that server wasn’t important enough to back up.  Hard disk crashed.  You get the picture….

So I paid $1500 to recover the data (that server had other websites on it too), and my blog sat there on CD until just earlier today when I thought I really should resurrect it.

Why didn’t I do it sooner?  Well, I kept thinking I would get around to implemented .TEXT and move to it, but every time I tried I couldn’t get the [email protected] thing to work.  I’m a developer, not a net admin who understands security contexts (I don’t.) 

Then today, I spent over 1/2 the day trying to get it dasBlog to allow me to post, even upgrading to the newest version.  What was the problem?   "NETWORK SERVICE" hadn’t been given rights on the directory.  Grrrrrrr!

So there.  That’s why it’s been down so long.

Hopefully it won’t happen again. :-)
