StargateWiki is back up

Finally, the wiki is back up. All it took was me getting advice from the main mediawiki software developer on what was wrong and telling iPower four times how to fix it. Sigh. Those were four scary, depressing days.

It leads one to think on the fragility of digital information... the tools we use to store it have become unimaginably complicated and dependent on so many systems behaving correctly... thousands of hours of work can be lost in an instant and perhaps never recovered. And yes, I did backups faithfully but they weren't the right kind of backups so they were useless!

I think I'll go print all 2000 wiki articles and put them in a binder. Then do it again. Somehow that thought brings me comfort.

So if the internet dies, we can just go to your house to look things up? LOL.

You know, we should mention this on the solutions lj, shouldn't we?

I didn't realize how much I missed the wiki until I could play with it again! LOL.
