Kudos to the team at WordPress for their foolproof scheme for backing up WordPress databases before upgrading.

Did I say foolproof? Let me be the fool to take that back. If you’re missing all the juicy e-engagement news that’s usually here — not to mention the usual look & feel — well you can thank the fact that the database backup turned out to be empty. Thanks to ecto all is probably not lost, but it will be a few days before I’m up and running again.
