If you have visited my blog anytime in the last 2 imageweeks – you may have noticed an error page.  This was due to my hosting provider “accidentally” deleting my site’s database.  This was actually a perfect storm of sorts.  All three of these things happened within the past few weeks:

  • I had recently repaved my main machine and decided to wipe out my database backups.  I figured I would just get a fresh backup afterwards.
  • With some recent travel for work, I did not have a chance to get those database backups.
  • The hosting company did not have a backup of the database they deleted.

All three of these extenuating circumstances led to this site being in a sorry state of repair. 

Fortunately, all is not entirely lost as both Bing and Google have cached copies of most of my posts but it leaves me in a quandary on if I should bother reposting everything from the past four years or if I should just start fresh.   For now, I’ve decided to repost only those blog entries that had more than 1,000 views.  That said, if you remember a blog entry and it hasn’t been reposted, please send me a message at greg [at] samuraiprogrammer dot com and I will get it reposted.

Please enjoy the new site.
