Website Kerfuffle


Happy Monday everyone! This past week has been crazy. So, we are going to save most of the less interesting things we have to talk about for the podcast episode coming out Wednesday.

However, yesterday, Sunday, August 4th 2019, we were in a bit of a panic. Our hosting provider had decided to change data centers without warning. When they cloned all our data to the new data center, this caused our website to go down, because the name servers where changed. Once we go the name servers for our domains fixed, we realized that there had been some data corruption. And while we did have a back up we could restore, it was too old to be of much use. It was looking like we were going to have to either use this old back up and replicate everything overtime, losing a lot of important data, or start from scratch.

Thankfully, our wonderful Web Developer Logan L Johnson found a way to fix everything and bring our website back from the dead…like a draugr.

Now that we have our website back, we are going to be taking back ups much more often. Our hosting provider themselves are going to be taking weekly backups, and Logan will be making some more back ups occasionally.

As a quick preview to what we plan to talk about in our podcast this week, we have news mostly about Drauger OS 7.5.1 Zombi, Calamares, and some information about potentially a new kernel we may be using in this next version of Drauger OS.

If you want to learn more, go listen to our podcast for free on Anchor, or one one of the many other podcast platforms Anchor will point you to. Our next podcast will be up on Wednesday, August 7th.

Sincerely,

Thomas Castleman
