Dreamhost Destroyed my Site

After seven, long, happy years as a Dreamhost customer, the last straw has been added to the pile. A fileserver apparently crashed, losing all of my current data, along with my archived data. Fortunately, this did not include my MySQL databases, so all of my text content is intact, but does include all other files: layouts, designs, css, javascript, templates, and photos.

As such, this blog is looking a little… sparse.

It does give me an interesting opportunity to “reboot” mattheerema.com; rethinking it’s purpose in the universe, which I will be taking some time to do over the coming weeks. Hopefully something cool will result on the other side.

Thanks for bearing with me in the meantime.
