Whew! My site seems back to normal. That was kinda scary. I still don’t know what happened, but everything’s back.

Every experience holds its lesson, though, and I’ve learned that I need to be more committed to regular backups. I’ll make sure to make a backup this week. I’ve also realized that I haven’t actually tested my backups. Sure, I have .tar.gz files of my website, but what would happen if I unzipped them? Are the permissions preserved?

In any event, I should mention here that I’m getting back into the mood for some serious writing. I think I’ve gotten over the glamor of becoming a writer, and am now ready to just write. I do have fun writing; I just need something to write.

And now that I’m role-playing in the Nobilis metaverse, I have plenty of fodder for stories.

Oh, this is cool: You know that Redemption game that I’m involved in? The woman organizing it is going to see if she can get the creator of the game to come down here so we can meet him. I’d love to write a new edition of the rules, which is not outside the realm of possibility.

And hey, ma, the company I work for is in the papers. It’s a good article, too.

Time for a new poll. Here are the results from the last one (turned out to be spread pretty evenly across all of the possibilities):

Which is the most important attribute for productivity software that you use?
Stability (22%)
Performance (27%)
Cost (16%)

Ease of Use (16%)
