I’ve been notified by my web ISP that Hurricane Rita is approaching Houston. Why does this matter? Because geekrant.org (and a number of other sites I run) are sitting on a server in a data centre in Houston. I’ve been encouraged to take backups of important content, which I’ll be doing. It’s a reminder that regular backups are an essential precaution.
If the site goes down in the next day or two, you’ll know why. Best wishes to those in the affected areas.
