I wrote this long entry on Friday afternoon about how I really hate it when people drop in for unannounced visits at our house, particularly when those visits end up lasting for several days. On Friday evening I checked for comments and didn’t have any, but I figured it was because I’d posted it so late on Friday afternoon that no one had gotten around to reading it yet.
I checked my email on Saturday and didn’t have a single comment notification in it, which is odd – usually at least one person will come up with SOMETHING to say about my current post, even if it blows.
And I had nothing. Not one.
Once in a while I get comments without email notification – some kind of quirk in the system, I think, so I figured I’d just visit the index page and check the comment box.
And my current entry up was the one I wrote on Thursday about my bug issues. Hmm. What?
I checked the archives. No mention of the entry about drop-ins. I checked my edit/delete entries area. Nothing. The member news area had no recent posts about Diaryland eating entries, so I dashed off a quick note to tech support asking where my current entry had gone, because I most definitely did not delete it myself. In fact, I hadn’t even visited the edit/delete area any time recently. And of course, this entry was one of the ones I hadn’t backed up.
My support request is still in the queue, which may mean that this has happened to other people too. But maybe not. Andrew & Sammy & co. normally do a pretty good job of maintaining a site that started small and has turned into a behemoth, so I’m not sure what’s going on. One time my entire template randomly disappeared for no apparent reason and they had it fixed within the hour, so I’m hopeful.
But I pay money every month to get the enhanced features, and the last time I checked, those enhanced features did not include random loss of entries.
I’m not slamming Diaryland. I’m really just slamming the Universe, I guess. Because it’s one of those days where I hate everyone.
Yep, even you.
