Ok. So now that things have pretty much settled out, and I've moved this site to another box as an added precaution against another disaster, the time comes to think about what needs to be recovered.

If there's any bits of information you feel are of critical importance and you have them readily available, go ahead and post them. If you've got information you dug up from Google's cache, by all means, repost that too if you can. Otherwise contact me with the information.

If there's any interest from the community in trying to fish things up from Google's cache, the advice is to act quickly and grab what you can. They've already begun expunging pages that are getting 404 errors from my own blog site and it's been less than a week. I regret that I don't have the time to invest in doing this myself for a project site this size.

So, is the 4,853 number of posts listed in the sidebar the posts you were able to recover from the old drive then? Or does that (along with individual post counts) take into account anything else? (I'm assuming that it's just what was recovered.)

Yes. All of the post stats are reflective of what was pulled from the old drive. But if memory serves ( since Google cached it out ) we piled up another 500 posts or so.

Well, the same offer I made over on FUSS stands here too, but I only have 268 "posts" in my reader for this site (including the above posts in this thread) going back to 1/26/07. *shrug*

Huh. Only 268? How much of those were bugfix posts? That's the information I'd consider most important, but only if they're complete.

I assure you that few are complete as my RSS reader only seems to catch the first so many characters of a given post. :sad:
As to how many were bug fixes.. I hadn't counted. :shrug:
