Well, that was stupid of me. Thinking that I was shutting down another site, I nuked the WordPress install for the Pontiac Archives site, leaving nothing but an empty directory. That was on January 26. Today I got an e-mail from Jean asking what happened to the site. I thought it was going to be another PEBKAC moment until I saw that empty directory, and suddenly realized that I wasn’t paying close enough attention when I clicked that button last week.
So a rather intense interval was spent this afternoon rebuilding the Pontiac Archives site. The end result is not bad — I picked a new template that I rather like, and was able to streamline the about pages a bit — but the previous entries will probably have to be accessed via the Wayback Machine.
