Ok. so i updated my wordpress from 3.2 to 3.3 and it deleted all my posts. i panicked for a split til i remember that i was a good little boy and backed up my database. i just uploaded my dump file to phpmyadmin and then went back into my wordpress blog where it prompted me to upgrade my database. i clicked, 'yes' and everything seems ok. Whew! Heart palpitations have now stopped.
