Crash

So, I lost all my posts from Christmas onwards.

Crash!

The Raspberry Pi that hosts this blog crashed and bombed hard and the SD card got corrupted. No amount of FSCKing or other tricks would let me get any files off the thing - I only managed to get into the file system once, and by that point all networking had failed, so even though I could see the ghost.db file, I could do nothing with it - and so I had to reformat and start again.

Luckily, it seems that some time over Christmas I was footling around with Ghost and discovered its export option, and saved a GhostData.json file into Dropbox.

So... we've lost Album of the Year 2010, the huge long rambling post about guitars and the 7-string I ordered, and probably not that much else really, when you get right down to it.

I shall treat this as an object lesson in backing up.
