It’s one thing to sign up for someone else’s web space and keep a blog, but an entirely different beast if you want to keep full control for yourself. Want your own template? You own designs? Your own features? Either pay up or do it yourself.
But every once in a while, even when you’ve been doing everything just the way you were told, something happens to let you know that you still don’t know everything. I have no idea what caused the minor database corruption that dropped many of my oldest posts, but fixing it taught me a lot I didn’t know, specifically that the way I was backing up things was essentially useless.
For those of you used to seeing certain features or things around here, you may find a few missing. I’m working on that, but with another convention coming up and promises yet to fulfill, fixes here will be slow or have to wait.
