A Brief Apology
Those of you who subscribe to my RSS may have noticed that I re-posted the past 4 blog posts on Saturday. This wasn’t a glitch it was down the fact that, somehow, this blog had short-term memory loss. I’m not sure why it happened as requests to (mt) support yielded only more frustration. It may have been the way I was explaining things properly but either way I couldn’t make them understand my predicament. My own theory is that my machines both at work and home were still, somehow, going to the old server and I was posting there. This is odd as I was sure the DNS was pointing to the correct server but it’s the only explanation.
Fortunately the RSS feed that Livejournal pulls through for this blog still had the posts on there albeit slightly out-of-order. So the posts were recovered from there and re-posted with correct dates. I appreciate I could’ve just done this in the first place and not contacted support but really I just wanted an answer than a resolution. Either way it’s all sorted now and the blog is still here, it’s still working and that’s the main thing and to be honest I’m glad it was only a minor loss of data as opposed to the whole darn domain going down. So all-in-all I’m still considering the server move a success just not as seamless as I’d hoped for.
