July 4th 2011. That’s when I last made a post here. Nearly three and a half years ago!
After three long years of gathering virtual dust, Ratdat.com finally disappeared into the ether at the end of May earlier this year but now we’re back in the game! This is wholly down to the general awesomeness of Datsun-France.com and in particular Sylvain and Sean, who very kindly offered to host Ratdat.com . Thanks guys!
Currently, as you’ll no doubt observe, pretty much everything is broken and non-functional and there’s about a years worth of posts missing from 2010/2011, but over the next few days I shall be putting in a few hours in order to get everything up and running again. I unfortunately lost the most recent database backup in a laptop meltdown so I will have to manually re-write the lost posts. Also the blog software has moved on in the last 3 years so there are plenty of incompatibilities to sort out and as such I can’t be sure if all, or indeed any of the features work at present.
Also, this isn’t just a case of restoring Ratdat.com as an archive… oh no… it’s going to return to ‘active’ status and allied to the massive changes made to my car collection, it’s likely to return to being a more Datsun biased blog. Once I have fixed everything, I shall drop in a few backdated posts to bring you all up to date with what’s been happening in the last few years. Lots of work ahead!
