Dead Drive, Data Loss, Lost Archives

  1. Ouch. No backup? I kind of agree with you, though… its 2005. Isn’t everything everywhere backed up? I find it hard to believe you’re not automatically backed up. What if the datacenter caught on fire? They don’t backup their own business (let alone what they offer you)? That’s ridiculous. Anyway, if you can’t get further back, you might try your Archives at http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://gigaom.com

    Obviously, a tedious process. Oh well. Also, check this out… http://thisisgoingtobebig.typepad.com/blog/2005/03/six_apart_joins.html Perhaps you should open a Friendster account and blog on their free version of Typepad for a while. 🙂

  2. Om, Very sorry to hear about this disaster! Glad to see that you are up and running now. We look forward to the new future posts. To the roads ahead…

  3. Sorry to hear about the loss. I would have also thought a company as good and big as Rackspace would do automatic updates.

    Found this in the cache
    I guess you’re not feeling the love anymore.

  4. I have every one of your posts since late last year in my Newsgator folder in outlook – it would be trivial to forward them all to you. Email me at jasonepowell at gmail.com if you would like me to do so!

    Incidentally, this, if for no other reason, is why I love RSS Feeds – it’s like you have copies of everything everywhere!

  5. I had a few articles cached in RSS, but it looks like you have better offers than mine. I’d mail them to you, but I can’t find an email address for you (contacts link is 404)

    Two kinds of hard disks – those that have failed, and those that will. Now to back up my PowerBook onto a DVD 🙂
