Server crash scrambles today's posts/comments (updated)
Unfortunately, the server hosting blogHOUSTON experienced a hardware failure earlier, following routine maintenance.
The hosting service had to restore backups to a new server, but those backups were from yesterday, so posts and comments from earlier today were lost.
Sorry about the downtime and the loss of data. In all, I think the hosting service did a pretty good job getting a functional server back online.
UPDATE (05-13-2006): Yesterday's posts have been restored. Unfortunately, the comments left between the restore point and the crash are forever lost. Sorry!
