Dead Laptop Screws Further With Delphidabbler.com

Following my previous post where I said that, due to Corona virus, the move to the new web host was postponed, my one and only development laptop died on me a couple of weeks ago.

That means that the revised website due to go live in mid June will now have even less content that had hoped. You can see the current state of play at https://delphidabbler.github.io

The new machine has arrived now, but it's going to take a couple of days to configure it, restore backups, reinstall all the software and purge all the preloaded crap that I didn't ask for!

I've got a to do list as long as my arm, and that includes more than just adding content to the new site. Most of it has to be done before the old web server closes on 15 June. Hey-ho. The old site is fully backed up so the content won't be gone forever.

If I had an ounce of belief in mysticism I'd be starting to think this project is jinxed. But I haven't, so I don't!!

Backup ?

Yep. Software backups a-plenty!

Just the one laptop & no desktop tho. And it took a couple of weeks to find it wasn't repairable.

Now I'm spending a boring couple of days restoring backups and re-installing / configuring software :-(
