cutefolioThis week has given me two frustrating lessons in backup. [1] ALWAYS make sure that you have everything backed up. I created a project called about a year ago. This past week, I tried installing the new version of drupal in which I built the site. Next thing you know my site is gone. The upside to this is that I am planning on re-building the site using another CMS, probably wordpress.

Sadly I had amassed a bunch of backlinks and even a mention on the Gawker Network site Jezebel.

[2] On we had a sleight database catastrophe. We didn’t have any backup system working, and the sheet pages part of the database ended up getting corrupted. We basically lost all of that data, and had to start over from december 14th. Lesson learned – ALWAYS BACKUP.
