Well, I just finished upgrading from Movable Type 3.0D to the current version, Movable Type 3.121. Unfortunately, I kinda goofed and accidentally blew away all blog entries (and their associated comments) from 9/6/2004 through 9/30/2004 and all comments for entries created from 9/30/2004 through this entry.

This is really unfortunate, as this is the first time that I have lost data from the Daily Nugget since its inception over two years ago. The good news is that the new version of Movable Type is a lot more stable even if it doesn’t protect me from my own dumb user errors.


  1. You didn’t backup your entries before upgrading??? Shame on you!

  2. I did backup the entries! Unfortunately, I used notepad to view the entries and hit “save” accidentally. This truncated the file to entries through July. So I reverted to another backup of entries that I made to get everything through September 6th, then rebuilt entries manually for october using the browser cache–it sucked. Either way it’s still my own error, since I should know better.

  3. I found the rest of the entries except I didn’t have all the extended enries. Which means that my three last Amazing Race 5 entries are still missing.
