My diaries are back! w00t!

Since we had rec/rate restored over here, I was hoping that the admins would do whatever was needed to also restore diaries that disappeared.  Well, it seems they did.  Today I checked my page and everything is intact again!  w00t!

Does anyone else still have missing diaries?  If so, check in on this thread.  Maybe the admins can get it fixed.

And of course, if you're still missing stuff, drop a comment.

Now, the reason I was concerned about the missing archives is because I've got a lot of good stuff in there (if I do say so myself).

For anyone interested in reading more about the activities of the Texas netroots, check this out:

2006 Texan of the Year - an award given yearly by the Texas Netroots
The Revolution is No Longer Silent - front paged, a diary about the convention chair fight at the 2006 TX Dem convention
Project Bridge the Gap - also front paged.... an intiative we launched to help merge the Texas Netroots with the Dem party power structure.  we started by hand delivering copies of Crashing the Gate to all the members of our State Democratic Executive Committee.

Another Perspective on Hillary's Speech - all of you Clinton supporters who are just coming back... please read this.   I feel ya.

Big Brother is Watching You - net privacy is extremely important to me.  i work in the industry, and would advise ALL of you to read that diary.  it covers mark klein, at&t, and net spying.

For Veteran's Day: Our Democratic Veteran Candidates - in which i introduced the term "fighting dem" (yictt!) to the net, and posted about all the veterans running in 2006.

John Cornyn's Numbers Suck - the first sign of weakness from our junior Senator.

So... does anyone else have some greatest hits that they'd like to share?  Does anyone know their diary titles that have  disappeared but need restored?  Posting them here might get them fixed.

And of course, big ups to the admins for fixing whatever the heck was going on with the archives.  I am really grateful, guys.

Yep, mine are back too!

I hate losing writings.  I lost 30,000 emails when I passed a limit Eudora was never meant to handle years ago, and much more through personal neglect.  My step-brother lost a book he worked on for five years when his home burned down...

Re: i've blown up eudora, too

Thank god there isn`t a picture of the look on my face at the moment it all went away.  I'd written heaps and heaps of page-long email dissertations and classic bits of my career in that damn thing, and Cisco wasn't archiving emails in those days.

Now I use Outlook for work email.  I frickin' hate it, but it has become the defacto (piece of crap) client.

Good for you. I have enjoyed our recent discussions and I will check out your diaries when I have time.

Ah, mine have been restored as well!

A collection of MyDD's most typical comments, circa early 2007 was promoted to the front page.  Thanks to Chris Bowers, I got my 15 minutes of fame!

This diary contains my top 800,000 reasons to vote for the Democratic nominee.

Same here. There must be a post-primary blanket amnesty going on.

Yes, mine are also back.

Their disappearance had something to do with the new archiving process, and it was horribly annoying, as there was no way to find them (that I know of) other than to search the title of the diaries in the comments archive. Mine showed up yesterday (maybe the day before?), and I was very pleased.

Only thing is, I can't get them off the "new replies to your entries" section on my feedback page. I've clicked on all of them, tried a test comment, etc. Nope, still there. Maybe I need to go update them. That might fix it.

Re: Yes, mine are also back.

Same exact situation here. I'm just ignoring the "new replies to your entries" part, but would be happy if they went away if you figure out how to get rid of them.

As of now, I still haven't written a diary.
