A couple of days ago, I was bumping along on line. I am very like a Manatee. Not so much navigating as going from plant to plant.
My chief thought: I sure hope I don’t get slashed by a passing motor boat. Really.
And what should I discover? Forty lost posts, just floating there. These were posts lost in the great Network Solutions debacle and presumed lost forever.
I am no useful detective in these matters but it looks like a French outfit called FeedShow reproduced the posts.
I will never speak ill of the French again. Especially some guy called Thierry at Feedshow, to whom I am very, very grateful.
What remains lost are the many comments on these posts. And for this we may thank those scoundrels at Network Solutions.
