Yesterday, website nuked by mistake…..

It was bound to happen at some point.   No person is perfect.  In fact most people would agree that if they do most things half right most of the time they are satisfied in their perfection.  Well… I guess I am satisfied.  🙂

I was in the process of trying to add additional features for the 1090XLR project to the domain when I veered off course and started doing clean up from past mistakes.  I had some orphaned databases and folders that were left over.  The orphaned databases were easy to deal with.  But then I discovered a scripted uninstall app in the Cpanel of the website domain manager.  It was listing several lingering breadcrumbs to failed or abandoned projects.  So happy that I had an easier way to clean the site up, I started selecting the orphaned breadcrumbs for deletion/uninstalling.  Only the listing was slow in updating and in the process I selected the active app for deletion.   WTF???!!!

Four hours later I finally had a functioning website back.  Fortunately I had done a brute force backup of the website, late last November and so I was able to use it to get back up.   So right after I finish writing this post, I plan to make a backup both on the domain and off-site.  I really did have other things to do yesterday and I don’t want to repeat this.  Especially since there are so many other things to only get half right most of the time.  🙂

New Town, New Home and working through the boxes

Well I’m back………  Almost.  🙂

I’m done with city life.  Small town is more my style now.  I’m sure I’ll miss somethings about the city, but being able to get from one side of town to the other in 10 minutes I don’t think will get old anytime soon.  Owning my own home is nice too.

Boxes are going to be my life for the next week or two.  Just when I think I’m making headway, I find another stack that was hidden behind the one I just emptied.  I swear my apartment was only 810 sq ft.

The kitchen is almost finished.  The bedroom, living room and hobby rooms are almost done too.  The guest bedroom seems to be the collection point for all uncategoried items.  One of these weeks I’ll start in on it.

BitsofthePast.com is open for business again. 🙂
