Where did all the images go?
If you are wondering if the disappearance of images from my blog had anything to do with moving it back to blogs.msdn.com, you are on the right track. The reason I moved the blog was that my computer which was hosting the blog had a RAID-0 failure causing a lot of data to be lost. While all my articles were backed up using SQL Server backup, the images in the filesystem were not being correctly backed up. The images are lost for good. (There are thumbnails still lingering in Live Search and Google's cache, but I haven't figured out if they store full-sized images and whether those can be recovered). So until I recreate all my artwork, you will have to use the text-only mode.
