ContentPeople articles gone forever?

It looks as though I may have lost much of ContentPeople’s content.

ContentPeople was a site that I started early last year, with a former colleague Matt Beech. We wanted to offer practical advice, tips and general interest articles to online content professionals. Neither of us had time to do it justice, so it kinda’ fizzled out.

Recently, though, I’ve had a couple of requests to restart the site. I’d quite like to. So, I trundled off to find the MySQL database that held all the content. It’s gone. My old webserver seems to have been completely cleared out. Not even archive.org has most of the content.
