Let me offer a small piece of wisdom to you budding web developers out there:
When dropping an entire test database, make sure -- make sure! -- you are actually logged into the damn thing. And not e.g. your live production database that powers your website.
If you absolutely insist on doing so, you will significantly enhance the humorous irony by making sure to have forgotten to set up your database backups on the new host you'd migrated to last fall.
On an unrelated note, I seem to have lost some content here.
