Downtime Again

Sorry, I had to take the database down for 20 minutes in order to take a snapshot as the trials and tribulations of yesterday left my backup inaccurate. On counting the number of entries on the system and then on the live backup, the backup machine had one less…

Clearly not a situation thats conducive to good backup strategy.

The author of the new database stuff has contacted me with a view to helping look into the problem, so we may get somewhere yet.

  3. I wanted to mention that that one diary that wasn’t in the backup is one of my many parody diaries. I haven’t been able to find it since the downtime.

    This diary, like many primetime television shows, was the story about a crime solving monkey named Foofoo. His many adventures took him through the land of Dear Diary solving mysteries such as: Who Sent Code Red to Serenity, or Why Does SmashHeather Have Two Daddies?

    If you could somehow bring this diary back, I would appreciate it.
