My now very former hosting provider “lost” my blog VPS, and I lost everything on it. My automated backup process had apparently stopped working when I’d shuffled some paths around. Oops. Thankfully the Wayback machine archived my blog for me, so I’ll be able to get back most of it. My previous process and custom+creaky blog engine was too complicated anyway – let’s give a try to a static site (generated with Jekyll).
I’ll be restoring functionality and old blog posts as I go, but I wanted to get something back online. It’s felt odd not having a Web presence – like I was no longer really there on the Internet, or some sort of Internet ghost. Spooooooky.
Anyway, I’m glad to be back.
