During a hasty server relocation I discovered that the database that stores ZagZ.com was slightly corrupted. Not badly enough to affect the performance of the site. But enough that the backups didn’t notice it and reported themselves happily complete.
The actuality was that the posts and comments tables where horribly damaged and it was only while trying to restore the backups that I discovered how hosed those tables were. Now if this site was my main focus I would not be running it the way I was. But it is my little plaything so them’s the way the cookies be crumblin’.
So I’ve recovered all the posts, and most of the comments. There are definitely missing comments, but they will take more time than it’s worth to find them and reintegrate them in to the new site.
Meanwhile I’ve redesigned ZagZ.com and am reworking the backend so that it is the starting point for all my online identity.
Let me know if you stumble across something more broken and lost than normal.
