After my irritating episode yesterday when I deleted a couple of posts, I received a message from Fiona to say that she had rescued the Myna Bird post from her Google Reader because it had not at that time refreshed and deleted it. However the 'Legs' one had gone. In fact it had gone from Facebook's Networked Blogs too and had, effectively, disappeared never to return.
However my saviour for that post came from Mark, my Nepthew-in-law, who wrote the blog search program Postvorta and who knows about the dark arts behind computers that most of us can only wonder about. Apparently my Postvorta had not re-indexed since the deletion (if I understand it correctly) and Mark was able to rescue all the text from it.
So today I am an exceedingly happy bunny and have re-constructed the two posts and the comments made on them.
Some people today will have done great things: finished their magnum opus, discovered a cure for an illness, re-invented the wheel or saved a life or, perhaps, just achieved a personal best on the athletics field. I've re-constructed my blog. I am easily pleased!
I should have been out on the croquet lawn this afternoon playing a match in the hot summer sun. As it is it's rained solidly all day and the match has been postponed until tomorrow.
So for the second day running I've been catching up round The Cottage, in Blogland and Computerland. The children, on the other hand are not on their play-stations or whatever - they are in the pool despite the rain - the water temperature yesterday was an almost bath-like 30℃.
I've also started using Blogbackupr.com to back up my blogs constantly instead of my supposedly monthly back-up to my own computer. For someone who is a fanatical backer-upper and who keeps on and off-site backups I certainly failed when it came to the blog backup.
