Thingamablog Crash!

August 20th, 2006 | Posted in Site News | Comments Off on Thingamablog Crash!

I was editing a new entry when for unknown reasons the computer locked up. Frozen cold as absolute zero. When I rebooted and got Thingamablog restarted I was greeted with this Error message:

Error Details…
java.lang.Exception
Unable to connect to database
net.sf.thingamablog.backend.HSQLDatabaseBackend.connectToDB(Unknown Source)
net.sf.thingamablog.gui.app.ThingamablogFrame$2.construct(Unknown Source)
net.sf.thingamablog.SwingWorker$2.run(Unknown Source)
java.lang.Thread.run(Unknown Source)

On further investigation the blog database was apparently damaged. All the template files are ok, but TAMB’s record of previous posts is gone. As I edit this I have no idea if clicking publish will nuke what’s already on the site. Just in case, I’ve got thexisting pages saved (hindsight is 20/20 isn’t it?) and If posting new stuff with the halfway recovered setup nukes the old posts I’ll probably do a manual repost of the last 10 or so posts.

As they say “here goes nothing”…
