It’s awesome to see all of you once again! 🙂 I know, you must be wondering like “what’s the matter?” I tell you. The reason why I have been missing 2012Onwards’ readers is that the site went down for two days, this week. Yes, you heard it right. 2012Onwards has been showing a database error since 2nd Feb, 2014 that was Sunday. As a result of which, no one was able to access the website.
Let me start by telling you what happened on 2nd Feb, 2014. A colleague of mine rang me up somewhere around 1 2.30 am. The moment I said “Hello,” he said “Your blogs are showing some database errors.” At the very 1st instance, I thought of some bug from server side but I still tried to pull myself together and ran for my laptop. But when I accessed the blogs, I had realized that someone tried to barge in the website and caused serious database loss. My brain went on a merry-go-round for a few minutes actually.
At 1st I realized the attack on my blog TechTricksWorld. The moment I found this fact, I immediately called my friend cum business partner- Zainil and notified him about the issue.
Thereafter, both Zainil and I began recovering the databases of our blogs in full pace and hoping to restore all the blogs asap. I’m happy to notify our readers that our efforts have already won the major part of our battle. However we are still doing our best to recover the data fully.
Meanwhile, I’d like to thank our friends, readers, and colleagues for taking out time from their busy schedules and for notifying us about the damage caused.
Incase if you have anything to tell us, then please do not hesitate to contact us. Your support and encouragement are the most valuable assets for us! 🙂
