Funny characters, missing pictures

Some of you may have noticed that when we rebuilt the site, some strange symbols appeared inside the text of some posts and comments.  This is because of character encoding and decoding when we retrieved the MySQL database back up.  I won’t bore you with details, other than to say I’ve gone through all posts and removed these manually.  If I’ve missed some, please let me know.

I have not cleaned up past comments yet.  Some of these are in en Français. I am too much of a novice at speaking/writing French to successfully edit these, but perhaps Geraldine will be able to help at a later date.

Most pictures have been replaced.  There were a few missing, but google had thumbnails of them. Categories and tags have been reassigned, mostly from memory.

All in all, I’d say that rebuilding the site is complete now.  I’ve backed it up again, but as stated before, it is very hard to back up in a single location.  You can back up the pieces, but the whole thing takes time to put back together. 

Thanks for your patience.
