REMEMBER TO BACK UP YOUR FILES

If you're wondering where the Two Swans site is, it is off-line temporarily, due to a fire in the building where the server is.

(No persons were injured in the fire. "My" server is in Houston, so the fire was not near me. All the yarn is safe here in Kent, WA.)

I do hope "my" server was not damaged and comes back up soon.

Eep! I recently signed up for Mozy for automatic, internet-based backups on my computer in the event of catastrophe at my house, but I never gave a thought to a catastrophe at the SERVER!

Hope your site is back up soon!

A couple of years ago, there was a fire in Los Angeles that temporarily interrupted the prettyposies.com blogging site. That ended up being no big deal -- that server was offline only a very small amount of time. Now, looking back, I think of that LA fire as foreshadowing this -- Two Swans has been offline for 36 hours and counting. You just can't be too careful in backing up your data. That includes all you bloggers out there -- back up your blogs!

I've never heard of Mozy, Deb, but perhaps this is something I should look into.
