Once again, I have managed to resurrect this blog after a complete failure of the machine it was living on. This time, I had only a defective mysql dump and an old back up of the directory to start from, but after some random hacking of the files and some digging around in the wordpress database tables it looks like almost all the content is back.
I realized in the process of doing this that there are nearly 400 posts covering more than 10 years of my history here. Losing it would be heartbreaking.
It’s time (most would say “well past time”) to set up Time Machine on this Mac.
