A funny thing happened on the way to my backups...

I've been working on divvyo.com for a long time. Every once in a while I'd get tired of the way the site was going, and rebuild from the ground up. For the past two decades it has gone from a home of a blog, to music, to comics, to games, and back to a blog. Everything old would get backed up, removed from the site, and I start again. No matter what happened with the new version of the site, I'd be comfortable with the fact that I have the old version backups on my computer to look at and maybe revive.

I'm sure you know where this is going. One idle Saturday in 2020, I go looking down memory lane and find my backup from 2018-2019. That's it. Everything else has disappeared. No more games. No more music. No more corny joke database. I can't even guess as to how all the backups vanished, they never even left a note.

I liked all that stuff. "Wow," I thought, "now I have to start over again." Then I thought, "Wow! Now I have to start over again!"

Some of the old stuff is still rattling around in my head, so now it's time to bring it all back. A re-release of DivvyO's brain. Whatever isn't remembered, I'm sure it wasn't worth keeping. I wouldn't know, because I didn't remember it.
