Well, some of you may have noticed that my blog was down for several days now. Even google cached the error message displayed by server.

google cache

I fixed it my self. Well, this comes as a development as I have always feared to learn MySQL administration and considering it something very alien to me. Well after a few minutes of googling I found that I had to drop the cache table as it was corrupt and recreate it. This post helped me recreate it. Later on i discovered that I only need to use the command truncate table cache;.

The reason for this was several factors. Mohammed Sameer the uber-administrator went to Uganda, he actually used to fix anything for me. And it seems that they have limited internet access there.

Since all the uber-admins went to Uganda, Eglug was also down for more than 20 hours and Manlaa and blogs hosted on manalaa was also down for a few hours. Alaa managed to bring both Manalaa and Eglug back.

UPDATE: and updated to the latest version of Drupal.

UPDATE: and a fresh new look.
