Site back up; was offline almost all day

Today was fun. The site was down almost all day after a database meltdown.

Fortunately, all seems to be well now (10:30 PM) after a few hours of nail-biting. The most recent backup I had was about a week to 10 days old, so I wasn’t looking forward to having to re-create everything.

Naturally, the first thing I did after getting back up was make an immediate backup – now I feel a LOT better.

Hopefully things go better from now on … I may have to switch hosting providers, however.
