    After doing a complete migrating to SE3, and a new hard drive. MY hard drive crashed. Yes I got the call to tell me the hard drive crashed and we are doing everything within our power to fix it. Out of the box I got the bad hard drive.

    So here I am on my sites looking around to see what’s messed up and what’s not.

    ***Then it hits me what the heck!!!

    ***If I am crashed why are all my sites still up?

    It’s called a temporary restore hard drive. (Have to love rackspace)

    There are a few clusters killed in my hard drive and a small amount of missing data.

    Missing Data you say????? What data is missing????

    YUP you guessed it -- of millions of pages it decided to kill my front page to ssan.com and no other. I upload the index page and all is well with the world.


    So today my server crashed and within 2 hours everything is working at least temporarily while they are working fast to accomplish a mirror of my hard drive to the new hard drive.

    Hell of a day!

    I did want to point out – the combination Rackspace and the program I use to build sites with will have my entire down time for a complete server crash to 3 hours!

    The moral to the story is:
    YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR!

    Sandra, sorry to hear about your disk crash. I knew something smelled funny and the dogs swore it wasn't them!

    Speaking of which, that newspaper trick is working very good so far. You're a life saver!

    I think that's Sal's time traveller luggage. I'm guessing there's a teleporter inside. Either that or a souped-up Delorean.
