Hey. Here I am... Over here.

Well, nobody knows whether the great journalspace crash is permanent or not. But just to be safe, I've set up a temporary base camp for Cheeseburger Gothic here in the foothills of Blogger. I hope the other cheeseburgers can find me. How on earth will I let them know? Should I update my entry at wikipedia or is that jumping the gun?

Murph? AJ? Savo? Lobes? Brandon? MickH? Anyone?

And what about my favorites from JS? Where have they gone?

Oh this is an epic fucking disaster....

Shit! I had to create a blog just to comment here and shock horror! someone else is using Soapbox opera! The Nerve!

Also...I sent you some email addresses Birmo, hope you got them.

Apparently JS should be back up again either tonight or tomorrow Aussie time. I don't know what condition it will be in however

Thanks Mick. I've just tweaked the settings to alllow anyone to comment. can't say I'm loving the Blogger experience.

I wonder if this will ever be read?.

Looks like the hard drives crashed (I know I do that semi-regularly but it's not my fault). So depending on their backup status (poor I suspect as the drives are being taken in for data recovery) it could be awhile. Bangar.

Wow, I just got totally confused by the comments as I didnt realise they are left over from the 2006 crash. Real 'Glitch in the Matrix' moment.

Give JS some time. If its not up by the first week of Jan its time to get new digs.

However it doesnt sound good. Both drives failing and a super-expensive (ie: long shot) recovery attempt being mounted

Anyway, we'll abide!

A couple of people have mentioned LiveJournal, and it seems a good idea to me. I don't blog, but I have an account with them so I can comment on others' journals, and the functions they have for stuff like messaging, email, friends' list feeders and LJ communities would seem to support the sort of thing people were doing with the Burger.

"but was there an independent backup of the Burger?"

The National Library of Australia was supposed to be saving the 'Burger for posterity. Though I'm not sure how much and how frequently they copied it. Savo would most likely have a link for it.

Interesting to note that the JS admins suspect sabotage as being possible for the crash. Obviously someone out there wants to shut me up.

I'd've thunk 'in here' was more likely. >>>smirk<<<

Not much in the way of back up from Nat Library (even though I for one welcomed our new librarian overlords) They didn't go deep enough only one level down so anything that wasn't on the calendar or first page has gone ni-ni's. I've got some stuff stored off site on a yahoo thingy which is a place I figured wouldn't crash and have easy access to all that was sent to Mini-Burger via birmoverse. For some of the classic stuff I've even saved comments but nothing really new ... Also Sherman but JSpace purposely blocked the Wayback Machine, so no luck there.

Bit of an up date on the mini-burger SAR.

Some comments are recoverable some are not. We clearly changed something with th JSpace set up about entry 40 or so that disassociated the comments from the fan-fic.

The little warrick programme works as advertised BUT since I made the entries nice and neat by putting the #SPLIT# command in it, Warrick kinda stops at the SPLIT command - so not an ideal solution. Anyone who didn't use the SPLIT command it WILL do a full recovery of your entries - again comments are problematic.

Still working on it
