As some of you have noticed, there are a few missing chapters. Two, in fact. Apparently, this is due to some server issue on wordpress’ side, and mine is not the only blog that has lost something.
The missing chapters are B12.10 Born At Sleep and B13.2 Call of the Sleeper.
Unfortunately, those are both chapters I wrote on my ipad, while on the move (mostly on the train), and I’m afraid I’ve failed to keep backups of them – just a few half-finished drafts. I can rewrite them, of course, but I thought I’d ask if anyone here may have a copy they can mail to me at “firstname.lastname@example.org”, to speed things along.
Now back to writing the new chapter.
Way back machine wooooooooo
Interesting. Do the posts still show up on the Dashboard? They might simply be hidden or in the trash bin. If you can’t find them in any of these places you should contact wordpress.com support. Usually they can find and restore your posts.
I already tried the Wayback machine but apparently these two posts are exactly between two snapshots. And I also wasn’t able to get them with the rest api (in case it was a theme or a perma link problem)
Yeah, I tried all that. All I’ve got left is contacting wordpress, or else rewriting them T_T
I sent you a mail with the chapters In RTF format, I saved all the chapters in a epub document created by an app for writers I use tocollate the works of my favored authors.
You are a true hero. Thank you kindly!
I was wondering where B12.10 went! D: good to know someone has a backup copy!
another idea would have been to use google cache if you still knew their url
I’ll keep that in mind in case this happens again.
Knowing wordpress’ track record, it likely won’t take long…
