Well, it seems as though my worst (website-related) nightmare has come true: I have unwittingly incinerated almost a year’s worth of blogging. How did I code up that ray-tracing script? How did I install numpy and scipy? And Emacs? Aquamacs? I don’t know, and I may never know.
Maybe I’m being a tad melodramatic, but the truth is, I have managed to make the old blog disappear, and that doesn’t make me happy. I think I’ve still got the whole thing on the server (I can see the files!), but I’ve messed with the database, and now I can’t figure out how to get the WordPress script working properly again. Well, I suppose I should take this as a lesson. A lesson in NOT deleting a year’s worth of hard work.
If I ever figure out how to get it back to the interwebs, I will be sure to post it here, along with how I did it. In the meantime, we’ll just have to move forward.
