View Full Version : On bad things happening to good people

My friend Mark Rittman (http://www.rittman.net/) recently lost his entire library of 700 blogs/articles/etc (http://www.rittman.net/2006/11/15/wheres-everything-gone/). He’s handling it with SOOO much grace; testament to him as a gentlemen and all around great guy. I know I personally would be furious, bitter, and livid (at least for a few weeks).
The worst part about the whole deal, the hosting company is unapologetic enough to state (http://www.hostroute.com/blog/2006/11/statement-bluesrv2com.html):

Customers who have their own backups will be able to restore their own
data. Our terms and conditions advise customers to have their own
backups in case there is a catastrophic loss. This is the first time we
have suffered such a loss.
Mark, I’m soooo sorry. Here’s hoping you get some of it back (BI Blogs (http://www.biblogs.com), OraBlogs, (http://www.orablogs.com) etc).
