October 19th 2004
So, if you haven't noticed already, SamPowers.NET has been down since March 10, 2004 at around 10AM. Yes, some 14 year old kid from Florida got into my box and deleted everything for the fun of it. Why? Because when you have no life, deleting stuff that isn't yours is the most productive thing you can do. Anyway, the only backup I had of the database dated all the way back to September of 2003. NOOOO!!!! That means about 9 months of entries are gone! I have the old hard drive sitting here at home in hopes that one day I will be able to do some data recovery junk and get everything back.
So a WHOLE LOT has happened since the site went down. Far too much to cover in one entry, but God is calling me to serve in Guatemala for a semester starting in December/January. I'm going to be teaching computer science and helping Mark Smith with his ministry and also maybe even helping kick off their praise band.
Well, that's just a quick update for now. Sorry if some stuff on the site is broken, I am still trying to get everything back to normal. I will try and squeeze in another update tomorrow. Until then, ta-ta!
