Last evening this site developed a dose of hiccups.
It does that occasionally so I wasn’t too worried. I put it on life support and went to bed.
This morning the site was dead.
Well, it wasn’t actually dead, but there was a notice on the door announcing that all its resources were used up or some such meaningless garbage. Try as I might I could,’t get in to try to fix it.
I tried everything but in the end I had to fall back on the old maxim – when all else fails, use a stick of dynamite.
So now the site was just a smoking hole in the ground surrounded by rubble. Not a pretty site.
I started from scratch on a new server. But then I had to paint and decorate it to look like the old one and then I had to write in around 4,600 posts and around 66,000 comments and all from memory. It took an hour or so, but in my defence we’re looking at a couple of million words.
It is sort of working now. This is the third time I have written this little piece and somehow the other two just vanished so maybe it’s not fully functional yet. I know I have a lot of work left to do on the foundations.
But it hasn’t hiccuped yet………
