Oh FFS, I just upgraded to 3.1.4 like two days ago and now you’re hitting us with another update?

What’s the deal with two updates in one week?

Dammit this gets annoying!

Damnit!

I lost a few days worth of posts… I think from Wednesday through Friday. My wonderful missive about the connection between aches, pains, and weather… all that eloquent prose, gone forever.

This morning was server maintenance day; I was migrating the web server to a brand new box with loads of memory, faster processor, bigger faster hard drive.. I had done a dry-run on Tuesday and everything worked, so it was supposed to be a snap this morning.  The new box was all ready to go, everything ready, all I had to do was do a fresh dupe of the databases from the old box to the new one. 

Dang blast drat buggely hell and bat doots!

I was tired and achy and the coffee hadn’t kicked in, and when I mounted the drives I got the assignments backwards and copied the new drive contents backwards onto the old drive, instead of vice versa. Effectively erasing the last few days.  Thank the gods that I at least had the tuesday files from the dry run. I’m usually way more careful about this sort of thing, I guess I’ve gotten a little cavalier since these upgrades / migrations have been so smooth the last few years. 

Sigh.

Anyways, what’s done is done and 2 hours’ work on a Saturday morning is teh suxorz so I’m calling it quits.  Have a good weekend.

Edited to add:  Hooray for Google page cache!  I was able to find a cache of the post from the 7th and bring it back to life.  Yay google! 🙂
