We ended up moving it over to a virtual private server, and I blocked a few sites that were hammering this site pretty hard. Hopefully this will keep the site up for a little while.

Now we will see if Snay knows how to use WordPress 2.6. ^_^

Update (or how I am breaking Snay’s website)

Howdy Snay fans. I am maiki. I am hosting the website, as well as educating Snay on the finer points of blogging, such as using permalinks and backing up his blog’s database.

If you have been keeping up lately, you may notice that a month of posts are gone. His database is dead, having been corrupted by what I surmise are the 55,048 spam comments he was keeping in it. Fortunately, I made a backup a month ago to test the transfer, and that is what we have to work with. Sorry to all of you who commented, I tried my best.

On the brighter side of things, a few of us will be working with Snay to give his weblog a facelift (shhhhh, he doesn’t know yet), as well as automating a bunch of stuff to make sure that we don’t lose any more data.

Things may be a little funky this week, but I am confident we will get all the kinks worked out, and Snay can go back to ignoring his fans while he fulfills his civic duties. ^_^
