77 comments. That’s roughly the current number of entries in the Kitchen Cow Giveaway. Unfortunately, disaster struck, the site database got screwed up, causing kitchen cow to crash a couple of hours ago. Luck was with me and I was able to recover a large amount of data. Still, I wasn’t lucky enough to escape unscathed. My last back-up dates to before the last two posts so while I was able to reconstruct the last two posts, all the comments between then and now were lost. Including the contest comments.
That’s why I’m asking all of you guys, especially the contest entrants, if you can find it in your hearts to forgive me for wasting your time. I know it was tough trying to think up entries for the contest. I read a lot of the entries and some wowed me, some inspired me, while some had me rolling on the floor laughing. (I’m looking at you and your Rafa Nadal comment, magnetic-rose!)
Please, join again. For all those who posted before, even a short, “I posted before, count me in,” would suffice. You could answer again but if you’d rather not, I’ll take your word for it and count that as an entry.
I’ll be trawling the internet for the entries that posted on their own blogs but if you’d like to help me, commenting your post’s URL here would be awesome. To give you guys more time to post again, I’ll extend the deadline by a week, ending the contest on June 15, 11:59pm (GMT +8) instead.
Please don’t skewer me with your bento picks over this. I hope the site still has your support despite this unfortunate incident. Forgive me?
