Have you ever wondered why people visit The Snow Tire FAQ and what answers they are looking for? I do, and luckily I have a couple of different ways to find out.

The first way is through web analytics. They tell me that most people who arrive here via a search engine are looking for reviews of snow tires, often specific brands of tires. [A big THANK YOU to those who have taken time to write up their comments on tires. They are appreciated by many people.]

But web analytics don't tell the complete story. When I started the Snow Tire FAQ 17 years ago, I set out to answer some general questions about snow tires. Out of all of those original questions and answers, what has been the most read? Apparently this one: "What about All-Season Tires?" It wins by a 6:4 margin over the second most viewed answer in the FAQ section.

The Snow Tire FAQ Forums are back up, well sort of.

After several months, the Snow Tire FAQ Forums are back up, except for one small thing: At this point, all posts (and users) made between March 2008 and September 2009 have been lost. I am looking for them, but I am not too hopeful.

So what happened?

A couple of things. The first was the sudden lost of the web host. After a bit of scrambling, I was able to get the site re-hosted, but I decided not to bring up the Forums immediately. Instead, I decided to to drop back to the original FAQ.

Before I got around to bringing up the Forums, the very unexpected happened: the group I was working in was disbanded, and I lost my job. One would think that that would give me a lot of time the site back up. Well, it did, but there was just one little snag: Since the Snow Tire FAQ has banner ads, any day I work on the site (even answering e-mails or enabling users), I have put in a day of work, so I can't claim unemployment for that day. [That includes the day I am writing this.] It doesn't matter that my income from the site (before expenses) is typically less than $200 a year.

So that explains where the site has been, and why it has taken so long for the forum to get back up. So what about the missing year of posts?

Well, err, you see, computers are funny things. When they work, they work. When they decided to only back up 1/2 of a database, they only do 1/2. The half that was missed included all of the posts and user accounts for the site. That should be no problem, just pull an old back-up. After looking, I did find one, but it is a bit old, from March of 2008. It could be worse, the Snow Tire FAQ Forums have been going since 2004.... still....
