Lost Ground and Fresh Starts

Something unfortunate has happened dear readers. The entire databases for this site as well as CollectiveArts were lost. When all, or most, of the content of a site is stored in a mySQL database, site management becomes really easy and the file structure becomes clean and logically arranged: it's great. When you're old hosts sever craps out and you must move to a nicer facility with out a database dump: it's a pain in the ass.

Nothing's changed, and everything works as it should, unfortunately, all of that old content is here. I should be moping around and fighting like hell to get a fairly recent backup of the database, but I'm not. Its ok, and Chris and I will be able to move forward. After all a fresh start that clears out all of that start that I've started to get a little embarrassed about is an okay thing. I'm not celebrating it, but it's not a bad thing. I've posted two of the entries from my personal archive that I'm rather proud of (and I did postdate one), and we'll continue from here.

After a month of not having a working website, I'd think that it's good to be back.
