Backup imminent…

 

IMG_2189There is curently a mirror of my blog located at http://lamenta3.wordpress.com. I have created this mirror because the box that normally serves this (and all of the content above me in the domain) to you is having some serious cooling issues stemming from a dying heatsink fan. Never fear: the site has been backed up locally and is being served from another box, at least for the time being. That said, if you notice anything hinky, let me know–all of the server settings might not be quite right.

However, I went ahead with the mirroring anyway, as the above is served from WordPress’ boxen, not mine (or Andrew’s…whatever), and has significantly better uptime overall. The drawback is that there’s a lot less flexibility with what I can do with the blog, which is why the mirror is, well…kind of ugly. That’s also why it doesn’t have all of the same fun widgets on the side, etc. etc. And the importing messed up my tags, and I’m too lazy to fix it.  So in the end, I’m willing to put up with slightly diminished availability in exchange for being able to make WordPress do things that its mommy told it, it should never do. 😉

All that said: if anyone knows how, other than doing it manually, to make the mirror update automatically when I update this version of the blog, I’d appreciate if you’d share the secret with me. There are ways to make this page update when I update the mirror, but that hardly makes sense to do under most circumstances.
