While Away The Hackers Will Play…

I stepped away from the computer for the last month and change.  Needed a break.  And just about everything that could go wrong did go wrong.

The credit card I had on file had expired and wasn’t rebilling.  I lost a pretty important domain in my business.  I’d been planning on ditching the domain soon, but it would have been nice to use it to redirect!

I also lost three blogs, including this one.  It was obvious that my website, not just my blog had been “hacked” to some degree.  A ton of spam links started showing up on my pages.  And after talking to my host they informed me the database where all my blog posts are kept… was corrupted.

I lost around 400 posts and a lot of google love.  This also happened to my sister’s blog and a hobby blog that was pretty important to me on a personal level.

Aye carumba.

In any case, it’s time to start again.  I just finished uploading as many useful posts to this blog that I could find in Google’s cache, so this will be the 60th post.

More posts will follow.  It’s good to be back.

(And thanks Jim Sansi for welcoming me back to the blogosphere.)
