The Empire Strikes Back
I’m remembering the wisdom of my favorite teacher from college. She always said “Back everything up. OFTEN.” For the most part I follow her advice…until I get lazy. I can’t remember the last time I backed up my hard drive or, for that matter, this database. Which brings me to today’s unfortunate event. I was building up the back end of this site so that I could edit my articles and even delete them if I wanted. I won’t go into a whole lot of detail for you non-MySQL people, but let’s just say that instead of editing a single entry…I accidently edited them ALL. So that delete command became very handy, and here we are. Whoops.
