Almeopedia

Post by So Haleza Grise »

Are there copies elsewhere of the files? I assume we will have lost some of the individual edits.

I don't know yet. Lore's own files are lost too, and he's working on a job, so I assume he hasn't had much time to investigate. He mentioned a backup from a year ago, but it wasn't clear if it included Almeopedia. There's always Google... :?

I would have said "Almeopedia is down" if it wasn't obvious from my initial mention, or, you know, the fact that it's down. Anyway, asking the question here is an easier way to get an answer than posting a comment or an email.

So, may I consider my recent article on Obenzayet permanently lost? :?

As I said, most of the content is in Google if nothing else. It would require some wiki rejiggering though.

OK, fairly good news. The files as of December 2009 are back up:

http://www.almeopedia.com/Main_Page

That is, the bad news is that a year of changes is missing. I'll try to reconstitute them with Google caches.

As the hosting has changed and .htaccess mystifies me, Almeopedia links look different. For now, at least, they should look like this:

http://www.almeopedia.com/Almea

I have links on my pages of the form http://www.almeopedia.com/index.php/Almea which won't work anymore. But the above is simpler anyway.

Good! The Almeopedia is up again. Though it does seem quite complete.

This is what I found in Google's cache. It's not all that you had collected, but at least some of it.

I don't know how long Google keeps its caches of such things, but I do not recommend waiting too long to rescue what can be rescued from it. There was an incident some time back where I lost some work I had put on the KQ after one of the times it crashed, and though I found it Google-cached, I wasn't ready to deal with it - and by the time I was, a few weeks later, the data was gone from Google too.

I detect a hint of backishness on the Almeopedia.

Yeesh. I think I've restored everything major. I've probably missed a number of minor changes. If anybody notices something, feel free to fix it or point it out here and I'll do it.

I remember editing much of "Cuzei", "aurre", "Methaiu", and "Meťaiun language"

I still haven't understood the process in which you restore the articles.

Do a Google search for the article name, with the site specified: e.g.

site:almeopedia.com Cuzei

Then click the "Cached" link, to get Google's cached version.

This will give HTML, not Wiki markup, but you can cut and paste and fix it up easily enough.

I did, and it gives the lacking versions, at least in "Cuzei" and "Methaiu". Google didn't return 'Methaiun language'. So pity :(

The thermometer page went down before I could understand it. :(
Can anybody put it back? I didn't find it on Google.

Yeah, I can't find it either. We're probably SOL on anything that's missing at this point. I don't recall exactly what was on the page, but I'll try to reconstitute it.

I remember the Lúriei scale ascended by coldness, not heat, and that most temperatures were single digits. The other scale (I don't remember the name) went from -273 to 100 Celsius in 100 degrees. A degree is called a "chuca calei" if I remember correctly.
