Don't worry guys. Technical issues happen to the best of us! Hope the Thelio is doing a good job otherwise though.

Really enjoyed all the backup recommendations. Very responsible addition to all the self hosting content. I loved hearing about the service with "dead man" functionality to notify if it has not received any new content lately. For those of us who might not monitor home infrastructure quite like work... that could really prevent a disaster!
