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, or after I complete an upcoming web security course, whichever comes first, 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.
