Hookay. That's that, I guess.

For those readers who've hung around here long enough, I officially mothballed my old blog - the Ex-Donkey Blog - about a year and a half ago. I migrated over from Blogsnot to MuNu early on and haven't been keeping up with the whole administrator responsibilities. Apparently, MuNu moved over to a new platform and - naturally - mine got left behind (do to my own negligence).

I left it out there in the ether because I didn't have the heart to delete two years worth of blog entries (almost 2400 posts). Most of it wasn't worth saving (IMO) but dang it there were a few gems on there that I hate to lose, and more than a few good memories.

Steve/Robbo, if you know of any way to get it back from the SixApart powers that be let me know. Otherwise...

...R.I.P. to the Ex-Donkey Blog. :-(

Glass-Half-Full Yips! from Robbo: Bummer, but look at it this way - now you'll just have to start your 80's/90's Babe Review all over again. I'm sure I speak for all the guys here when I say we'd be happy to help.

Grateful Yips! back from Gary:
All is not lost!

Thanks for the suggestion, Minero. If you insert ".new" in between "ex-donkey" and ".mu.nu" you get to the site, albeit oddly formatted. The big downside however is that all images saved to MuNu are not retrievable. And the links only work if you go up to the address bar and stick the ".new" in the URL.

Of course, all those Google hits I was getting for "Diane Lane Nekkid" will go to dead links. Sorry guys.

That is all.

I don't know if this still works, but when he first started migrating stuff to mee.nu if you put in the URL "your blogname".new.mu.nu the site would come up. Whether you can do anything with it I'm not sure.

Gary -
Just took Minero's advice, and there's FDD the MuNu version.

I don't know, e-mail Pixy?

Just checked out your blog via Minero's advice...it's all there, and you can log in with your username and ID.
