Probably everyone already does this, but if not it is incredibly
easy to create a DTS package that will do a nightly backup of your blog. The
only semi-tricky part is realizing you have to start the Windows Service SQLSERVERAGENT.
My Domain server is on 24×7 and it is comforting to know every evening it makes
a backup of these jottings.

 

On a related note, does anyone remember seeing this on my
blog:

.Text – Application Error!

Details

A blog matching the
location you requested was not found. Host = [dotnetworkaholics.com],
Application = [blog]

 

It was due to two domains pointing to the same IP address. For an
as-yet-unknown reason the primary alias changed once in a while. Luckily it only
took about five minutes to download the .Text source code, make a quick
modification and upload recompiled dlls. If anyone
sees the error again please let me know.
