Hello world. Sigh.

Well, first some code on most of my site got eaten by the… I don’t know, maybe the incompatibility monster.

And then my webhost went down for a day, and took my e-mail with it. I know it’s not just me, because I can’t even get to their website.

So I’m in the process of moving and re-installing everything, which is just as well because I had two different templates running on the site, and it needed to be revamped. Especially the patterns. And upgraded, badly. Very badly.

I might even have a backup handy, but restoration of old posts and content is going to take a while…

    I agree with Sheila! Your yarn conversion calculator thingie was INVALUABLE! I hope that you are able to get up and running again. I understand your frustration, as I had a similar thing happen to me with Blogger about 6 months ago. But my site was nowhere near as awesomely helpful as yours! :-)

    It will be nice to see you writing here again if you can shoehorn us back into your life.

  3. I miss that wonderful conversion chart. Do hope you will be able to post it again as there is no other chart out which so neatly gets to the point. I used the conversion of nm to yards/100 grams almost every day, then suddenly could not access it. So … will the revamped site bring back your conversion chart? Say yes, please…

  4. I suspected someone of passing on some of my knitting pattern downloads… so I had to change all the addresses and passwords… NIGHTMARE!

    Keep on at it… You really are THE BEST for copyright information! Thank you so, so much!

    I feel for ya! I had a royal mess up myself last year involving an update, a missing folder and wishful thinking, I am just getting back on my feet. It turns out sql is actually something wicked that had led me to a false sense of “hey I can just plug my old posts back in”, too bad it didn’t work like that, it was more like a skein of yarn that my toddler got ahold of, lol. Good Luck and I hope everything gets up and running smoothly for you :-)

    Thanks, I had already set myself up on nearlyfreespeech by the time I figured out it was time to move. And qapla’! After several false starts, I finally managed to import my old posts and the comments. Now I have to salvage the images, and set up the other sections of the site!

    … and oh, right, fix the template.

    Oh dear. Maybe you can try the wayback machine for your older posts (web.archive.org). If you’re still looking for a site host, Dreamhost has been good to me (there’s a referral link on my site). Good luck!

  10. Hang in there….sometimes these thngs happen for a reason. You thought your site needed a revamp — so now you have to do it — the gods have a way of making things happen right?
