Google as a saviour

The CEO of a company I chair has created a very interesting blog based around irrevent thinking.

Unfortunately it was hosted temporarily on my now defunct hosting platform.

I thought he had a backup of the database. He thought I did. Result? Panic all round!

But Google Cache saved the day. We lost one comment, but as I knew the commentator personally, a quick email telling them what had happened resulted in them recreating it.

End result? Blushes all round (and a proper daily backup routine) but ultimately a huge sigh of relief!

Google is getting an increasingly bad press as people worry about how much power it wields and how much personal data it collects, but in this case it really did prove to be a saviour. Respect.
