You may have noticed some more downtime on the blog over the last couple of days. This was related to the blog hack I mentioned a few days ago. Troubleshooting and cleaning up after the server was compromised was difficult, and as it turned out, the hackers were still able to get back in and cause mischief. I apologize for any confusion or inconvenience that was caused by the downtime, and hope that this time things are well and truly fixed.
As I mentioned a few days ago, the Forum software that was running here on the blog was insecure, and so the Forum has been removed for now. Again, I apologize for the inconvenience.
Thanks for your patience!
Special thanks to Jason, who worked hard to track the hackers’ evil activities and fix what was broken.
