Whoops, We Lost Your Data

Well I suppose it could be worse. Hurricane Katrina keeps things in perspective, but my hosting company, Acenet, somehow managed to completely crash my site. Everything in the home directory: images, videos, documents, template files, has been lost. Evidently Acenet was not backing up the server and when whatever happened it got corrupted, so my home directory is just gone. Luckily, I suppose, the sql database files were not lost, so most of the blog text is still here. Of course I didn’t have everything backed up as I should have on this end either, so some content is just simply lost. One of the downsides of using WP is that I hadn’t been as methodical about backing up since most of the site isn’t built via ftp. I’m bummed.
