Alive but Hardly Well

As you may have figured out, I’ve had some trouble with the site for a while. We lost the database server and had corrupted backups. About 98% of the posts were recovered and I’m not yet sure which are still missing. I know that at least some of the links to downloads are broken and it may be all of them. If you had a username and password, those will be changed. I’ll keep you posted on new login credentials.

Sorry for the inconvenience. I should be back up and posting soon.

  1. Hi, Sorry to hear you’ve been having trouble. Whilst you were gone I was directed to your archive for some bits that I really needed to complete for work. Fortunately the Wayback machine ( had trawled the articles I needed. Its not foolproof but perhaps you will be able to get the lost articles back from there?

    Good luck


  2. Welcome back! If you haven’t already done so, I would install the WP-DBManager plugin. It automatically creates backups at an interval you choose, and can email them to you and/or store them on the server.

  3. Glad to hear that you recovered most content. I suggest enrolling for Vaultpress. It costs $15 per month and saves you from headaches like this.

  4. Great to have you back. I dont normally post, but it seemed kinda weird not being able to view anything on here.

    I did like the error message though, about the funeral arrangements :-)

Posting code? Use <pre> tags for VBA and <code> tags for inline.
