Aaaaand we're back...

Date July 3, 2009

Sorry about that weird bit of downtime there. It turns out that one of my MySQL tables had been corrupt for a long time, and it only just felt the load today. And of course, *poof*

The table has been marked as repaired, a new backup set has been created and moved offsite, and we are once again rolling along.

Boy, you hate to have stuff start that way, but that's how it goes sometimes.

Also, very special thanks to everyone who reached out to me to let me know that the blog was down, caught on fire, and sinking. Thanks, it means a lot to me that people care that much to go out of their way to alert me.

Maybe I should setup a Nagios server on here ;-)
