The power company advised me that the problem was fixed 20 minutes ago, and just now told me the power is out again. Recharging the phone just in case it really does fail.

I just got a text from the power company telling me they're aware that my power is out and promising to restore it by 2:30am.

It's not, but I'm now worried that it suddenly might be at any moment.

Now restoring the backup. The comforting part of this process is that the old setup is untouched, just completely shut down. If it all goes horribly wrong, I just start everything again and pretend I never tried.

The database backup just finished, copying that over to the new server now!

While Chinwag is down for maintenance, I'll annoy you all from here.
