Deleted all comments by accident

I just accidentally deleted all comments made on this blog.

This blog is homegrown and hand-made. It has a very simple spamfilter that catches most spam comments. The few that make it through though, I've been deleting myself using the mysql console.

I tend to write simple queries, ending in: .. AND id = 1234, but today I forgot the id =. I had a backup from October 2008, so some old comments are back now, but I'm still pretty sad.

Lesson from today: make backups! I'm pretty good with things I do for clients, but I tend to not uphold the same standards for my own projects.
