This evening I fired up this blog after not looking at it for over 12 months. I was ready (and motivated) to write!
Alas, something had broken in my self-hosted WordPress installation and the usual tricks of getting back in failed.
Not deterred, I downloaded the latest version from wordpress.org and uploaded it over the top of my previous install.
Do you think I took a backup first? Of course not! I am invincible!
And so, if you go back over any old posts you’ll notice there are no images left. They’re all gone. Dammit!
At least I could rescue my database.
So I decided that, due to the sporadic nature that I even look at this site, I’d move it to wordpress.com so I don’t have to worry about backups and updates again. At least that’s the plan.
