A little blogging hiccup

So I ran into a bit of a hiccup a few weeks back.

An update managed to corrupt the database files that ran this blog and a few other sites. I tried to recover them, but it turns out that InnoDB files are notoriously finicky, so I had to turn to the backups.

Sigh. Last backup was in June.

Well in the washup, it wasn't a great loss, only five blog posts and an episode of Purser Explores The World need to be replaced.

On the upside, I've switched from the vanilla mysql to MariaDB, so we'll see how that goes.
