Yesterday’s e-mail brought the unwelcome news that another of the scripts I run on some of my sites needs upgrading. I hate the process, even though it’s pretty simple. Don’t get me wrong, I love that people actually write scripts that can be used with a donation or without a charge. I really would rather upgrade than run a script that could be hacked.
I dislike updating because once I did something wrong and lost all the data in that application, a photo album. I had to reload all the photos, and I never did go back and add the captions I lost. I’m very careful, I follow the instructions, and I haven’t had a disaster in a couple of years. But, I’m still nervous every time I do this.
Two down, one to go.
