: I had a panic attack last night. I posted to the blog and suddenly got one of those frightening error messages you dread, something about connections to MySQL not working through the Mars rover. I emailed half the world. I had trouble getting to sleep. I woke up before 5 this morning and have to admit I went to the email to see, with great relief and gratitude, that (a) Movable Type was nice enough to send me advice and (b) Hosting Matters fixed the MySQL problem (which, by the way, is why comments did not work for sometime last night… I’m hoping that various trolls feared it was their fault, but I doubt it). I am the poster child for a little knowledge being a dangerous thing.
