Yes, I repeated a dozen posts today. Here’s what’s been going on. Starting September 1st, I was no longer able to upload any new photos. 3 calls to tech support got no results. 3 requests to get a copy of the MySQL file (the entire back-up file for nearly 5 years of blogging; almost 6,500 posts and over 18,000 comments) got no results. By some odd miracle, the tech support supervisor was in a good mood and sent me the MySQL file on September 28th. But he did not solve the photo uploading problem.
I signed up with a new host/server company, and they were able to transfer all of this blog’s files over to their server, including the MySQL file to complete the process. The preview site looked good, so I took a big leap of faith and transferred this blog to the new server yesterday. Success!
However, the MySQL file went back to September 28th, so any comments since then are lost, unfortunately.
I have been saving up (hoarding) many, many ugly house photos for the past 6 weeks. The photo below is the first photo I’ve been able to upload since then. My next goal is to return the column on the right side of the blog that’s been missing for 6+ months (another item left unfixed by tech support).
Thank you for your patience. I’ll have new photos tomorrow.
