Errant Data

A Dataflow Diagram of backup and recovery procedures.Image via Wikipedia

Wordout has lost some data. Posts from the entire year of 2008 were lost today. Then I found out that my last backup (June 1st) was corrupted. All the posts from May and June are still missing. I’ve been able to recover much of it, using a hit-or-miss technique in Google caches, but that will require reformatting before I can republish.

Believe me, this hurts me more than it hurts you.

I am Jon, and I think it’s time to move to a DAILY backup.

EDIT: Just remembered that I have Wordout sent to my email every day, so I will be able to recover everything using those copies. May take a few days, but at least I can recover…
EDIT2: But that means the comments are lost. Crap!
