Hosed the database to my old Drupal site. Four years of content, bye-bye. Just as well. Let go and let tao. Until Drupal can come up with easier ways to update the core, I'm leaving this system on backburner. Revisiting Joomla (3.2 from 1.5). It's a new year, new content, new system.
That's my story and I'm stickin to it.
