I've restored as much of the 2005/2006 versions of this blog as I could find on one back-up. I think there are other backups from later in 2006/7 I could get back but I need to find them and am working on that. It's significant that the old blog data I restored finished on a bold statement that it was now on new hosting and looking forward to the future.
A little background, my nickname from around 1995 when I started using it as an on-line bridge username to 2004 or 5 was Kiore in many circles. In 2000 I registered the Kiore.com domain name for the email address it gave me and had a number of "non-sites" on web hosting. In 2005 I started experimenting with blogging software and created the first cut of this blog.
Like a rat crossing the motorway, disaster befell it a couple of times exentually leading to the, I won't say "abandonnment" as I always intended to restore, failure to restore.
Anyway it's back now and I'll add new postings and recover old ones as time permits.
