1. President's AWOL

    [Welcome to our first post-crash post that doesn't relate to the crash]

    Lots of talk about the President's surprise trip to Baghdad on Thanksgiving. Some note the genius of PR, others claim its been done better before, without the need for secrecy.

    In the middle, Drudge has the personal notes of one of the pool reporters on AirForce One with the President, which is fascinating to me, and likely any West Wing fan, I surmise.

  2. Server Failure

    What an exciting weekend... After noticing an irregularity on Friday night I sent in a support request to our host on Saturday. Apparently the hard drive with this site on it had a physical failure. I imagine without paying someone a lot of money it won't come back. I assume it wasn't a simple recoverable failure.

    There is also a faulty backup of the data, and no backup of the MySQL data. Why this was the way things were run is beyond me. According to our host, they have upgraded everything because of this failure and have a backup system in place.

    I plan on figuring out a backup method for everything, especially the MySQL data for my own future well being.

    We only lost a couple weeks posts as I had most things downloaded to my machine at work and Google Cache had a fairly recent snapshot of the front page.

  4. Comic RSS feeds.

    Good 'ol Boing Boing has a recent post that highlights a web site providing RSS feeds for daily comic strips. This is a very nice idea, it saves me from sifting through 10 web pages every morning to tickle my funny bone.

  5. A Good Day

    Apologies to anyone who actually started reading our weblog, and then we disappeared on you. Jake and I have been terribly busy both with 40/week jobs and we've been working about 20 extra on the side with our little upstart studio (the key here is "upstart," which is full of optimism!). Two clients. Maybe one will pay us...

    Anyhow, today was my birthday, and my full-time employers gave me an iPod. OK, everyone else in the division got one, too, and I'd like to say that's for my birthday, as well. You're welcome. OK, and the company still owns it. But, hey, why look a gift horse in the mouth? If it can chew oats, who cares?
