yeah, it’s silly. I thought I was dropping a table, and
PhpMyAdmin didn’t ask me to confirm .
Feedly are going to send me an export of my last 1000 posts. Backtype have some of the last comments. I seem to have a wordpress export file (30Mb!!) dating back to october.
So, there is hope not too much may be lost.
I’m a little concerned about the “other language” custom meta stuff. And comments. Oh well.
Back up your blogs, children.

Whats about your hosting partner? They should have a daily backup somewhere?
hehe, no comment on the hosting, the hosting is me and a friend, so I’m co-responsible for the lousy setup.
Welcome to the club. I also erased my whole upload folder by the first time I tried to update Worpress.
that’s not exactly what happened — if only it had been the upload folder! this is the whole database that I just dropped.
Too bad for the data, but the blog gained in simplicity and that’s good.
I have the data, no fear 😉
