Me and everyone else on one of the servers over at Blogomania got hacked yesterday. Rebuilding my index files fixed the issue except for the skin selector page and the smilies palette.

I'll probably have to recreate those pages since I don't have a current back-up of the skins page and I don't think I have one at all of the smilies index page at all. It shouldn't take a long time, but don't expect to see them until later tonight.

Fucking hackers.

Updated: Looks like Christine re-uploaded those files for me, so everything should be back in order. It's good to know people in high places.

I noticed that your blog was taken over last night. That sucks ass.

I am glad I wasn't alone. Thanks for the info.

Oh no, that's awful. :-( I'm sorry you're having to deal with that.

If you don't have the files & want me to add them to the "please restore from backup" list, let me know. Backups are a good thing...

Oh darn! Not fun :( I'm glad everything is normal now.

It's terrible when people hack into other people's servers like that - you'd think they'd have more respect for personal property, or would at least have the courtesy to email Christine with a description of the flaw so the she could patch it.

Glad to know they didn't destroy everything, like they did when Jason DeFillipo was hacked (the guy behind BlogRolling). That was really nasty.

sorry about that. I don't get it why people (hackers) seem to think this is fun. grrr

Woohoo! You're back :)
