Well, folks, my hosting provider “upgraded” my server this week without notifying me first. In the process, they conveniently deleted the SQL database for the Beard Coach. Awesome. Thank goodness I backed it up for the first time ever just a few months ago.
I just recreated the database and restored the previous files. Sadly, that just took us all back in time to January. That means no winner to the beard playoffs (Brett Kiesel) and no Beard Wiki (was not lost and will be back shortly).
Thanks for your patience as I get the site back up and running between juggling my full-time job, college coursework to meet continuing education requirements for said job, and raising my eight-month-old daughter!
