Technical Blather: Losses and Gains

Welcome, friends. I implore you to take some time out of your super busy day/night/life to visit my dear friend Dr. J.


For the past few weeks, we’ve been pouring over the internet for fixes and help, but when it came down to it, the easiest thing to do was to rebuild almost from scratch. It’s hard enough when you lose files due to a hard drive crash (been there, done that, twice… it really sucks) but it’s hell when you lose your webby home and can’t back anything up.

I’m not a master, but I’m good enough when it comes down to it and I did what I could to help. I downloaded every page and image. I installed WordPress. I created a header (which may or may not change). I copied and pasted each post starting with the oldest post, even though they’d have appeared in the proper order since in WordPress you can change the posting date.

So, now you know why I’ve been fairly quiet all week and all weekend. Researching, scouring the web, adding on the WordPress forums to input. It’s been a whirlwind of a weekend, though, and it’s fairly close to done.

Unfortunately, I couldn’t save the comments, so if you’ve commented in the past at Dr. J’s blog, please stop by over there and look around. You may have a link going to one or more of her posts that may be broken now. Apologies for that, even if I could have done an import, they’d have probably been broken anyway.

However, she has used bit.ly links in the past, so those will go to the new site and most likely give the visitor a list of items they may be trying to get to. With luck, we won’t have any issues in the future. Also, she’s on WordPress now, so you can like her posts and follow her blog using the Reader.

Forgive us as we continue to tweak it to her preferences! And thanks for being an amazing bunch of writers and readers and supporters of the incredible Dr. J!
