I was using Internet Explorer at work, which I normally don't do (if I have to use Windows I'm going to use Mozilla), and I went to my blog for some reason. To drive up my page hits, I guess. But for some reason the request timed out and it loaded an old cached version of the page, one that had all of the posts I lost due to an incomplete backup-restore after the blackout. So for the sake of completeness in the historical record, what follows are the unearthed posts. Or at least the ones I feel are worth reposting.
