Silent Running accidentally deleted

Yes, it's true. Silent Running's website was trashed by their hosting provider and even worse: said company DIDN'T HAVE ANY BACKUPS.

Damn.

That's a big breach of contract. Can they sue?

Sue them? The bastards aren't even answering their phones anymore.

Gone out of business?

For less than the price of a QC I'd be happy to fly there and have a wee "chat" to them......

Much more satisfying than suing. :o)

We've redirected the domain and established wordpress. Xtra is taking its own sweet time about resolving the new server but other people (who are not me) might be able to see the first two posts are up about now.

I'm rebuilding all the images at the moment and we'll be fully functional for the Friday Night Free For all.

There's a WordPress import script for blogger archives.

We can technically get at all the stuff thats cached but its just too much work for a text only stroll down nuked site lane.

Silent Running can live again, or at least be resurected from Nov 23, 2004. Quite some time ago unfortuantely.

See this.

Back in Sept 2002 by brother was threatened with being fired if he didn't close down his blog.

The next day I launched Silent Running with nothing inlcuding a clue of how to do it.

Our third revamp - silentrunnig.tv had just hit one million when the idiots we were giving money to cocked it up for us.

We're a lot further ahead now than I was back in 2002.

What? Silent Running didn't make any backups? Didn't ask the provider if they had backups?

Yes Berend, we did have a contract for weekly backups with our provider.

Be sure to ask them why they didn't do any if you can get them to answer the phone.

The new site is now running through a server in Wind Riders office where he can touch it.
