The web host for tech.one.com.pk had a hardrive failure and the last backup they had went back to August resulting in a loss of quite a few posts. Google did have the cache of the posts for some time, but they seem to have updated their index and cache and the posts are lost.

We apologize for the loss and are taking measures to do routine backups of the database to avoid such a failure in the future.

    Or, put in a cron job to email a gazipped copy of the db to your gmail account every week. Put that space to good use! I doubt the db would be more than a couple of megs.

    RE: Any decent host should haveYeah, we’re going to start backing up the db and the web root - along with the content we lost a little tweaking (not to much though) that we did around the site (inline spell-checking, adding textile etc).

    Oh well.
