oh no...what have I done to my website?

I am so mad at myself right now, but I am laughing that I did this, too. I completely deleted the mysql database for the site, so now all you see it "warning: table does not exist" all over the page...oh man! Everything is lost... I was trying to build a second site - they are both hosted by the same server and for some reason I must have confused which mysql database I was working with for which site... Yikes! Maybe it is a good thing there were not many users yet! I am going to take this opportunity to get "back to the drawing board" and redevelop the site...there were a few things I didn't like about it so I can make those changes now. I only wish it would have occured to me to back up the databases before I hit delete...I thought it was the other site though, and so I "knew" I didn't need any of it...man oh man... Have you ever done anything stupid like this before? I will use it as a learning experience - I will not touch those tables again without making a back up of the database first!

That is why I just signed up for ElephantDrive, lol. Sometimes I don't save things I should because I don't want to bother organizing it on my hard disk or fill it up with unorganized clutter, especially graphic-intensive stuff. Then it isn't there when I need it. Then I dutifully save stuff for a while and change computers, lol, and never get around to moving them or the disk crashes. There is always something. My sympathy! You will have it up soon, and better.
