If you’re reading this, I’d probably wouldn’t have to write loads ‘cos you’d already know that my blog had just shifted from ember.geuvara.com. Apologies for any inconviniece, although I can hardly see any on your side, considering ember.stafa.us is shorter and easier to type that the old address. But the past two days have been tiring for me, as you may or may not know, sometime in February, the old domain was showing some arabic site promoting politics and I have absolutely nothing to do with that. Nor do I have any idea what happened.
My host, Stafa, suggested that I transfer my blog to his domain (stafa.us) and hence, the shifting. During the process though, the mySQL database containing all my posts, comments and settings went corrupted and was unretrievable. In other words, everything was GONE. At first glance, everything looked hopeless, all my posts dating back to January 2005 were gone. Google no longer had my site’s cache and the wayback machine’s latest archive was dated March 7, 2005.
Fortunately, I found out that I had made a backup of all the posts until September 2005 into a text file. And with the help of WordPress’ own cache which I found later after digging deep into the wordpress directories, I was able to reconstruct all the posts until January 26, 2006, which was pretty much until where I had left out. And with that, I reposted every single bloody post from January 2005 to January 2006 manually into a clean WordPress installation. The only downside would be all the comments are permanently gone but who’s complaining? It’s much better than starting a new blog from zero.
Well, during my absence from the blogosphere, I have been pretty occupied with school, with our first mid-semester exams ending only last week. I’m pretty confident of doing well this time in all subjects (except additional maths) considering the tests werent in full paper and the topics covered were only the first few, coupled with days and days of hiding in my bedroom studying that had me made sure of scoring.
Oh, and just so you know, it’s one week holidays for us starting today. Till next time, goodbye.
*edit: by the way, if you’re wondering, those pictures above has nothing to do with the post content, just thought it kinda fits the title, heh XD and if you’re still wondering, they’re taken at the Aman Sari showhouse in Puchong.
