« Part 257: I fixed my site Part 258 of Extremely Average series Part 259: Giving Myself Credit »

Hello All,

Today the blog is back to normal (for almost everyone). There was an issue for one of my readers, who has a router which flagged my site last week during the hacking debacle. She has had trouble getting back to my site ans her router continues to block it. If any of you fine LJ folks are having troubles, it may be something similar.

As for writing the blog, it was nice to not be railing against the evil hacker. I am moving on an continuing with my ikebana building. It is fun.

Thanks,

Brian

What a horrible thing to happen! I am so sorry to hear that. What the heck is wrong with people anyway? I am sure we will all stay tuned here and wait to see what you will do. You hang in there and we will be watching.

Take care, Sheila

Ok everyone…I believe I have gotten it fixed again. I have added (for 7.00 a month) some sort of extra security with GoDaddy.com. Hopefully that will keep the hackers at bay.

I was sorry to hear that your site had been hacked the first time; now, I’m thinking that there should be a special place in Dante’s Inferno just for hackers. I think it’s just wrong that someone feels the need to disrupt/destroy the creative works of another as a pathetic attempt to feel superior to others.

I sincerely hope that the GoDaddy security upgrade solves the issue once and for all.

Thanks A10GAC…I really appreciate it. I think I am safe for now. :-) And I agree on the Dante’s Inferno part.
