It turns out that my web host was nailed by a hacker yesterday afternoon. who destroyed/modified a number of files.
Specifically, all files starting with “index.” were modified. All files with the string “log” (which affected mostly “logo” files on the sites) were deleted. The hacker also damaged some of the backups.
So, they beefed up security, and did what they could to restore stuff….which wasn’t much, in my case, because of the recent overhaul of my site.
Long, aggravating story made much shorter and slightly less aggravating: I’ve re-loaded all of the changes (I needed to update anyway), and everything is hunky dory.
Bring on the muthafuckin’ weekend….and my birthday on Monday.
EDIT: Also, I’ve uploaded another userpic, over there. Mix that with last year’s middle-finger photo, and you’ve got a perfect rendition of me.
