I'm Back! (more or less)

Update 12/31/2010: "AdsensePro Kathy" from Google's AdSense team has pulled through for me and recovered my account and all associated services! Her timing was great--just a few hours after launching this new site :) . I'm going to keep my blog here and I've put in a note and redirect on my old blog (I'm liking the WordPress capabilities more than the Blogger ones so ultimately I think this is a good move).

As hopefully everyone has discovered by now, my old blog at was inadvertently deleted due to a screw up with how Google links accounts. I had created a new Google account to work with Google TV and must have used my old account's email as the alternate email (or something - still not sure what the connection was) and when I ditched Google TV (an hour later but that's another story) I went and deleted this new account that I created. Unfortunately this caused not only the new account but also my old, critical, account to be deleted. As a result I've lost my blog, images, and numerous other services that I had associated with the new account. I've tried everything I can think of to get them restored but at this point I've given up hope and resigned to creating a new blog (not hosted by Google!). If by some miracle my old blog is ever resurrected I will simply update the template to direct people here as this is now my new home, regardless of what the final outcome of my old blog is.

Because I had no way to directly recover any of my posts I was forced to use Bing, and in some cases Google, to search for all my posts and pull up the cached copies. I then saved each post locally and, naturally, used some PowerShell to parse the posts and strip out the post title, date, body, and comments. I had to manually enter and tag each post to get them in the system initially, but then I could leverage the WordPress export/import features to get all the posts as XML so that I could then add in all the comments. Needless to say it was a very tedious and annoying task that I hope to never, ever, have to do again! The only thing I haven't been able to recover is the images associated with my articles. I had a small number from a recent post, but all the images from my previous posts are gone - I'll do my best to get some of them recreated but my priority right now is finishing my book so that I can start writing some new blog posts (I'd planned to spend this week finishing the book but that didn't quite work out the way I anticipated).

Thanks to everyone that has, in one way or another, tried to help me get my blog up and running again! If you have links that you need to update I've created a table that shows the old link and what it should now point to. If you could help me out by updating your links and spreading the word that my blog has moved I would very much appreciate it:

  1. Hi Gary,
    I have a question, “Is there an ‘easy’ way to recover/restore just the excel document? Can I restore a single document using MOSS 2007?” Here is what happened, “The file was checked out, modified on the person’s desktop and low and behold the online version was also changed.”
    I checked the both 1st & 2nd level recycle bins. We are using MOSS 2007 for our Intranet.
    Hope you can help.
    Thanks,
    Frank

    • If document versioning was turned on then you should be able to roll back the document to a previous version. If not then you’ll need to restore a backup of the content database to a staging server and recover it from there (2010 makes this a lot easier but as you’re on 2007 you’ll have to take the long route).

  2. I really like your blog and i really appreciate the excellent quality content you are posting here for free for your online readers. thanks peace claudia.

  3. Gary, Sorry to hear that you had the blog nightmare that you did. It’s another example of bad things happening to good people! Thanks for all that you have contributed to the SharePoint community and for all the effort in restoring it.

  4. The most difficult thing is to find a blog with unique and fresh content but you definitely add value. Keep it like this.

  5. Many thanks for your personal anxiety as well as initiatives! These things in your web site is actually amazing. Also We dramatically love your own suggestions. Personally they are crucial matters. Nonetheless cheers. Wonderful browse.
