I am slowly recovering every sigitem.com and geocoin.net subdomain, but it would be nice to know which order to do them in based on their use. If you get to this page from one of the sigitem.com or geocoin.net pages, can you drop a note to Marky via geocaching.com and tell me the URL you were trying to get to and I'll try to have those ones recovered first.
I think I've fixed all the issues that I am aware of, so I started activating some people's sites. It's a slow process, so don't get too excited until you get an email from me telling you that I reactivated your site.
There are still some issues that I haven't been able to resolve yet, so until I get 3MonkeysSafari working, I'm not going to activate other sites. The database appears to be one of the main issues, and the data isn't writing to the database correctly. Will continue to plug away at this, and sorry it is taking so long.
Unfortunately, unless you are 3MonkeysSafari, I don't have yours back up yet. It is way more work than I thought it would be, but at least I know now what I need to do, and nothing got lost (I hope).
It's going to be a slow and tedious process, but I finally have everything in place and know what I need to do. The main pages for sigitem.com and geocoin.net should be back up, but the individual pages are going to take me some time to set up. Hopefully everything will eventually be back online soon.
I'm actively working on getting the sites back up, but having a heck of a time getting the data over. Hopefully, I will get it all worked out this weekend.
Not doing anything with the website recovery since we are in Utah with some of our geocaching friends. I'll probably get to it next weekend. I did recover all the data from the drive (it wasn't a drive failure, it was a motherboard failure or maybe a power supply failure). Because the old system was linux, it's not a completely straightforward process to get everything up and running again. I did recover all my old mail, which was a worry.
I'm in the process of recovering the data, and migrating it to the Mac Mini that is going to host the site now. I have no idea how long this is going to take. I'm also not sure if I will have consistent email access, because the linux box was also the mail server. Anyway, please be patient while we try to get everything back up and running.
We installed Leopard on all our Macs, plus bought a Mac Mini to act as a server. We will eventually be transitioning off of the linux box and to the Mac Mini for all services (web, mail, etc.). The new OS X is awesome, and having regular automatic backup is great.
My final post. I can’t believe that we have arrived at the end of the line and it’s time for us to move along. The new batch of volunteers will arrive the same day that Anthony and I will depart the Philippines. As they land and begin their lives as Peace Corp Volunteers, we will be ending ours. We will open a new chapter in our lives but close a very distinct one too. To put it simply, these past two years were everything I ever hoped and dreamed they would be and at the same time more than I ever bargained for.
