Holy Crap, the Website is Back!

After a nearly 5 month downtime, during much of which my site was offline due hacker activity, the site is finally back online!

The short version is that I was using an older version of MovableType and it got exploited. My site was then being used by criminals to attack outside servers and put up fraudulent bank phishing pages. I had no idea this was happening, of course. The first I heard of it was when my hosting company took the site offline. Having a kid slowed down the recovery process insofar as I had basically no time to devote to getting the site up and running again.

I am pleased to report that the site is now free of exploits (as far as I and my host are aware). That said, I’m not sure when “regularly scheduled” blogging will resume.

But that’s a topic for a different post.
