What happened to the quotes?

At some point, all of the many, many thou­sands of quo­ta­tions that were stored on my blog went 404. That’s high­ly annoy­ing. I have many more, but it’s going to take a lot of work to get them uploaded. The first file I came across in my archives was all about choco­late, so that’s all that’s in the data­base at the moment. (I do like choco­late, but not to the exclu­sion of all else!) I’ll work on get­ting the oth­ers put in place after I do the more urgent site updates.
Edit­ed to add: Ack! I found an old com­ment that said there had been 13,064 quotes in the data­base back in 2008! I don’t think I have THAT many in my oth­er files!
