You know that feeling of something you had once, forgot for long and lost for ever? I am kind of going through that now with my blog. Blames on self, the ill-managed me put the key to the server somewhere in a hard disk and it is gone. This site was down for a few months. The saying “once on the internet, always on the internet” is not true in all cases. So even if I brought back the site from a text backup dating 2008 and manual posting from way back machine all the comments and discussions are lost.
Posts from 2009 to 2015 are manually taken back from the last available backup in archive.org
Anyway, lesson learned the hard way.
