Well, lovely.
There is no more Viral Recs Index. I broke it. I was browsing in Netscape, viewed source to edit it, remembered that in Netscape you don't *get* to edit a viewed source because Netscape *sucks* on that score, and had to save the page in order to open it in wordpad. Only I saved it as text instead of html. And didn't realize it until I'd already pasted in the tiny edit, saved, and uploaded the new version to the website.


All gone.

Oh, the names are there, but all of the coding is gone. All of the <ol> and <li> tags, all of the hrefs, all of the invisible notes I left myself to let me know quickly which branch I was working on. *poof* What's left is a completely unformatted blodge of text. And I'm sorry, but I don't have the time, let alone the heart, to re-do it.

I'm going to go away now.

Edit -- fixed! Found a copy that I didn't know I'd saved, and was also provided with more than one backup.</b>

Can you grab a cached copy out of google?


2004-12-02 02:18 pm (UTC) (Link)

Nope; hadn't been cached yet.

What about the Wayback Machine? Might it have a cached copy? It'd be older if it has one, but it might better than nothing.

Sadly no. The page had only existed for a week or so; Wayback is several months behind on caching, and anything that came and went during those several months will never appear on Wayback at all.

*pet pet pets you*

Computers should know what we mean to do instead of what we actually do.

Oh, it's totally my fault. Moreso because I edited/posted in a hurry due to my own bad mood.

Darn coding and such. Sorry that happened to you. **gives you banana cake with chocolate frosting**

That... sounds really really good, actually.

Oh man :( *offers you more chocolate than a human body can take*

I dug all around in my browser cache, but I didn't have it. :( I must have cleared my cache since I looked at it last.

Couldn't hurt for you to put out a call to ask if anyone has it in their cache... Or even check your own.

I know it's not in mine, since I've refreshed and seen the messed-up version; that's how I figured out that it was messed up.

I'll add a note to this post asking if anyone else has it in their cache though; good idea.


2004-12-02 02:47 pm (UTC) (Link)

Which would be you telling us the URL, so we can look for it.


2004-12-02 06:57 pm (UTC) (Link)

I checked mine, no joy. :( I really thought it might still be in there, too.


2004-12-02 07:24 pm (UTC) (Link)

I am good! Found backups from more than one source!

1. Check your email.
2. Who's your daddy?


2004-12-02 07:23 pm (UTC) (Link)

1. ok
2. You. You are my Daddy.
3. Oddly, that was not as disturbing as it should have been.


2004-12-02 07:26 pm (UTC) (Link)

1. Good.
2. So the blood test came back then?
3. Given the fic we write, not surprising.

2. Well, they've narrowed it down to you and Harrison Ford, but you've got nicer boobies. I choose you.
