Laughing at myself

Back in 1988 I started a BBS in San Diego. I put out a lot of money, installed 2 separate phone lines, had state of the art 2400 baud modems and an Amiga 2000 with nearly 100 MB of disk space and a eye popping 2 MB of RAM. I coded and tested for hundreds of hours. Finally it was ready and I put it online. I published in the local computer magazines that it was up and running. Then I sat and watched it for hours waiting for someone to come use what I created for them. And I waited, and I waited and ... well you get the picture.

Backup and restore worked

Well in a moment of testing need I decided to determine if the backups where working. So I took a backup of the database and restored it to an entirely different database service. I altered the database handler to point at the new database service and kicked the web services.

What a surprise it actually all came back up just like it is supposed to.

I am in shock. Not only are all the forums back in place, the posts are there, the blogs are there and all the test user data is there too.

Well it is kind of up

The database is running. Django seems happy. I have managed to get things kind of set up. Still need to figure out a lot of little things. But it is a start. I hope to have Natural Order Software up and rolling as well as Greydragon off of the same code base. We'll see.
