Database Disaster Strikes – Contest Entries Lost


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.

14/52 but sometimes, you just wish you could unsee what you find

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?

    Aw, I’m sorry about the crash! It really does happen 😛
    I posted before to join, just to let you know.

    Tocilog, or Longsilog!! my favorite bento contents.. Makes me a little less homesick every single time I have them. With the requisite kamatis and itlog na maalat, of course :)

    I hate it when data just goes *poof*. I once somehow survived two hard-drive melt-downs (had to get completely new ones) in four months.

    I would do katsu-kare for my Oyaji to take to work (with manly Hello Kitty-shaped pink jell-o), and grilled salmon with sauteed carrots, quail eggs, and fun-shaped jell-o for my friend.

    Aw, I’m sorry to hear about the crash!! I hate it when technology decides to frustrate us like that!

    I commented about using the bento set as environment friendly take home. :) Restaurants should encourage that, like how starbucks gives you P5 off of you bring your own reusable cup or glass. :)

    So sorry to hear that :(

    That Bento stuff would be great for my daughter and son’s( he’s going to school now too!) snack baon for school, which will include their favorite pasta dish of carbonara or bolognese, my homemade ‘walang kamatayang’ chicken nuggets, mini sandwiches, some sliced fresh fruits for good measure and a couple of my freshly baked cookies.
    Bento-ing is great way making sure my kids get to eat right during school days instead of packing their lunchboxes with ready-to-eat less healthy foods…

    happy anniversary again KitchenCow!

    sorry to hear your database fuxed up. resubmitting entry:

    If I win this bento giveaway I will will fill it with…
    – tamagoyaki rolls
    – miso-marinated porkchops
    – homemade mini-siopao
    – chopped miso salad (aka hide-the-veggies-so-he’ll-eat-it-salad)

    … for my 30+ old brother who sometimes wonders if I want to start my own family because when the mood strikes me I pack him a very kiddie-looking bento which he is forced to open in front of his officemates. ^_^

    Sorry for the confusion. But to those who posted here, no worries. I’ll be counting these as part of the raffle, too.
