In my rush to prepare for my presentation at the .NET user group I made a major bad move. Ouch! I have 2 linux machines setup with MySQL and the one that was hosting the data for the mojoPortal web site was also the one I wanted to bring to demo mono. So I thought I'd copy the data to another machine and just point the site at that until I'm done with my presentation. Both machines already had a mojoportal database so I went to delete the one on the target machine so I could copy it over fresh but in a true Homer moment I deleted the wrong one. I had a backup but its about a week and half old so I lost some recent blog comments, forum posts and some major documentation work I did last weekend. Yes I know better, thats why it hurts so much. I let my guard down because my production machines are also development machines.
Anyway I'm all set for the meeting and none of the lost data has any financial impact, just frustration factor. I do have the names of everyone who requested one of the dvds I'll be giving away.
I appologize to Troels for losing his post in the bug forums.
