Well, as is clear from the previous post and my social media, this blog was hacked by some nice people who used a bot of some sort to crack an old FTP password, delete everything and inject cruft into the database.
These things happen and it’s taken a bit of time to get the whole thing going again. It’ll take a good while for me to go through and clean up the fifteen or so years worth of posts here so I have to decide if that’s worth the time, so my apologies for odd characters in older posts. I’m also going to give some thought to what place, if any, a blog has in the modern world. It probably should be some kind of personal sales thing, but that doesn’t sound a lot of fun, really.
