Dear ineed.coffee users and dycapo.org users,

I am sorry to inform you that an unexpected data corruption problem destroyed all my databases. And, can you believe it, the backup solution I am using at home also deleted my backups some time ago! I lost about six years of data and I obviously learnt that backup is never sufficient. I will recover the most important posts from the holy Google Cache and post them again as soon as possible.

Unfortunately, all your great comments has also been lost.

I am quite crying for what happened today, since my first post was on 23rd July 2005, but I am also happy to take this occasion for a great reset. From now on, ineed.coffee will only contain professional contents related to Computer Science. I also decided to change my username, that has always been bodom_lx, to a more professional one, that isĀ dgraziotin. “dgraziotin” is the first letter of my name “Daniel” and my surname “Graziotin”, and also a common account I use in my personal life.

Stay tuned for the most important articles that will come back in a few days!

This problem also affected dycapo.org, the website of my B.Sc. Thesis. Please wait a couple of days, the mojority of the articles will be restored there, too.
Meanwhile, you could have an eye to my B.Sc. Thesis Dycapo: On the creation of an open-source Server and a Protocol for Dynamic Carpooling

Sincerely,

Daniel Graziotin
