This is our “Pardon our dust” post, which means I’ll probably forget it’s here and leave it on the cover of Hello With Cheese way too long.

I finally tracked down the corrupted part of the Dernwerks database that was causing site-wide crashes every time I tried to upgrade things. But in removing the malignant code, I may have completely wiped out the databases around it. I’ve recovered a lot of it, but there’s some things that are gone for good. Sadly, your comments from the past year and a half, along with most of my blog posts from that time.

I’ll cut and paste as much as I can from Google Reader files to replace the blog posts, but it’s not going to be a huge priority over the next few weeks. We’ve got a few major things we’re working on (including a site and store redesign), so moving forward is very important to us right now.

I’ll keep y’all posted on further breaks and fixes. And I apologize in advance if I overload your RSS readers with a ton of new posts.
