Hi all. Here’s an object lesson for everyone. Especially me. Even experienced web guys get burned once in a while. My former hosting company appears to have folded its tents. Forever. Their site is down and their 800# is disconnected. The result is my site has been dark for the last 18 hours or so. Given that running this site isn’t my day job, I haven’t been able to expedite the fix any quicker. But, no excuses. When you live your life online, you also need to prepare for when things go wrong. Shame on me.
Anyhow, I’ve been planning a move to a new hosting company for about a month now and had been working through the details. Unfortunately, AvidHosting (the former host) has forced my hand. I’ll be working over the next few days to restore missing content and to correct the lost categories on the blog. Thanks for your patience while I correct these problems.
P.S., anyone with good tools/utilities for converting older WordPress database categories to the new 2.3.1 database structure, please drop me an email at tim-at-timpeter-dot-com. I would appreciate the assist.
