Buckeye is back

I have posted more than once about using online running logs. My favorite has been BuckeyeOutdoors, not sure if everyone heard about this but a week or so back I couldn't get into my Buckeye account and then this appeared:.

Buckeye Outdoors has suffered a major outage. A series of electrical storms first knocked out the backup servers that were located at the backup up location. Then the unthinkable happened 4 days later and a second electrical storm caused an extended power outage at the datacenter where the primary Buckeye Outdoors servers are hosted. The current situation is pretty grimm and I'm despritly trying to recover the data that has been lost. If I am un able to recover the data I will put the application back online but right now I am holding out hope and I even might send the Hard Disks to a data recovery place. If you have any questions please email here:

The data recovery was only mildly successful. First the bad news, all our data is not recovered enough to peice it together into something we could use. That being said I do have enough to bring the site back up but it will be completly blank. I am currently working on rebuilding the server and it should be ready by this weekend.

I had a couple years of data on Buckeye, I guess it's good that I use multiple sites but I am still kind of bummed as Buckeye had the most info. So when Buckeye went down, I started using RunningAhead along with DailyMile and SportTracks. I like RunningAhead, it's closer to Buckeye than the other ones so I will continue to use it but based on Buckeye, I think I will still take the time to load my data and run summaries to a couple of places, odds are two sites both won't die on the same day or maybe I should go back to that good old MDRA logback.  In case you are wondering, here are a few summary charts from RunningAhead, ignore that I have almost no data as although I am not running now I haven't bothered to move data into RunningAhead whenI was actually still a runner.

I'm glad to see Buckeye is back too! Had more data there than anywhere else too, but have also used RunningAhead and DailyMile in spurts. Yes, good to have data in more than one place! :->
