a blog that reclines to the left



1 November 2005

If you’ve been wondering where this blog has been for the past two months, the answer is simple: I spent Elul and Tishrei atoning for the sin of not backing up my server. Fortunately, I still had files on the machine that had been hosting this blog up until September 2004, and a large number of the blog postings from the following year could be reconstructed from Bloglines and from search-engine caches.

A friend of mine has introduced me to Unison, and my new server, God willing, is backed up daily and the backups are copied to an undisclosed location. There are some mistakes I really don’t want to make twice.
