Sunday evening January 4, Kim Halverson managed to destroy the new lcherald.com website and in the process lost all membership information, news, poll information and much of his credibility.
A new bug fix was announced for the software being used and Halverson promptly uploaded the new files to lcherald.com. However a full install was done instead of an upgrade and in the process of overwriting, all previous information was lost.
"I don't know what I was thinking", Halverson said when quizzed. "I guess, it was late on a Sunday and I was in a hurry to get to bed."
"I spent some time Sunday night and Monday morning trying to retrieve the files, but I was not successful. I now recognize the importance of good backups," he added.
The website was finally returned to a shadow of former itself about 4:00 pm Monday. "I hope I remembered to do everything. After 8 hours of rebuilding the site, I'm being to tire." concluded Kim.
