I had been hosting my own domain www.flyingspheres.com for awhile not much out there really, more of a sand box for me to work in than anything else. Somewhere around January 5th the computer I was using as server died. It wouldn't boot or even POST. I'm still not sure exactly what happened to it. I attempted to replace the mother board and CPU but do to a serious lack of inclination and knowledge I never got it working and took all the pieces back to where I purchased them.
I was feeling all bummed about it, worried I had lost a lot of info (source code, database info, etc.).
And Just the other day I went out to Nebraska Furniture Mart and found a really good deal on a new Desktop PC. I went ahead and picked it up and have been going through all the recovery issues that I can. I'm going to try and document the recovery process and setup of this new server in case it happens again....
