Fresh (almost) daily from Julie Barrett

Big first aid on the web site today. I'd been noticing some craziness in my links and some other database-driven items, but I'd chalked it up to some bad SQL code. Today I thought I'd take ten minutes to dig into things and discovered that almost every single database table had all the data duplicated - sometimes twice. Removing the data wasn't difficult except for the Journal, where I had over 3,000 duplicates in the table. 

I think it happened when I tried a backup last April. To make matters worse, many of the duplicate entries in the Journal table were corrupt and I couldn't know they were corrupt until I tried to delete them. So, yeah. Lotsa fun. 

Let me know if you see any problems.

I also went in and cleaned up the links on the journal. Lost a day of work, but this needed to be done. 

Now it's time to go forage for something for dinner...
