My site has been down for 72 + hours now. Found out yesterday morning that a DDoS attack on my hosts servers crashed and burned them. Everything was lost.
When they tried to restore backups, they found that they were all corrupted. Yes I took weekly backups. And stored them on my server, rather than my computer. Stupid, I know.
This is a 2 yr old blog of my life with my son who has Aspergers as well as other unique abilities. I chronicled his achievements, disappointments, special moments, as well as my feelings, thoughts, and opinions on many other things - God, religion, politics, the weather, mohawks, etc.
2 years of heart and soul on my blog - lost - although I have found a few things through Google cache, thank God.
Don't be stupid like me.
Save your backups to your computer.
You'll be glad you did.
