Back from the Freakin' Dead

Sam and the people here and a lot fo tinkering and testing has brough Vanilla Garlic back from the grave. Still no word from Blogger as to why the template was erased to begin with, but there you have it.

TO EVERY BLOGGER OUT THERE, PLEASE REMEMBER TO MAKE A COPY OF ALL YOUR POSTS AND TEMPLATE ON A DISK OR PORTABLE DRIVE.

Has anyone used Site Crawler to back up their blog?

Good lord. That must have been a really horrible experience. I'm backing up the whole thing today. BTW, what's the best way to back up a blog - save the individual pages as HTML or to go in and save the code of each one? What's site crawler? Can anyone share ideas on the best way to back up a blog? Thanks!

There's a good discussion in the comments section at this post on stragtegies for backing up your blog, and why you should do it, here.

Just to let you know, I back up all my work by site dumping it using an offline browser like Http Weasel. There are quite a few programs out there but it downloads my whole site including the index. And it's pretty simple to use as well... so highly recommended.
