Photo Album Working

I’m glad to say that the Photo Album looks like it’s working… Hope everything else is…

Server Crash

My server crashed. Horribly. I’m not sure what happened, but I woke up this morning to find both my machines had powered down. I assume that we had some sort of power failure. Power failures are very bad on complex file-systems. I learnt this the hard way.

I lost 77% of my database. Basically the file system got corrupted. I’m not sure what the extent of the damage on my system is. As of now, I’m back to where I was a month and a half ago – as far as the database is concerned. This is because I still have the sql dump I got from Marc’s server. There are inconsistencies in the Photo Album and I’ve lost a ton of journal entries… You know what? I haven’t even checked the rest of the system out. I’m too scared. Anyway… I had to fsck the file system a couple of times before I got this up and running. I hope nothing like this ever happens again…
