The Lost Soul!

with 6 comments

I am back with SoulSoup after a 4 months (!) long blog break.

Until 10 October 2004, SoulSoup was hosted with MT engine at mblog.com. On Oct 11, mblog.com pulled the plug on their services without any notification. They demanded $35 to send me the back up archives. Over 400 posts was hostage – I had to pay the ransom.

Even after paying he full amount they only provided me the directory archive, not the single text file archive.

James Farmer came to rescue. He offered a helping hand by providing a new home for SoulSoup at IncSub. I took his offer, but I had to do the daunting task of uploading all my old post one by one!

To cut the long story short it took 3.5 months to recover the shock and .5 moths to design the blog, learning Wordpress , learning rudimentary PHP and upload all the posts.

Thanks James and all the people who provided encouragement during this dark hour.
