The last two months have so crazy busy at work, I decided to take a week off because 1) I needed to decompress, and 2) to get a few of those nagging little things done, like car maintenance and a/c checkup. But I procrastinated too long and couldn’t get some of the stuff scheduled. I did get the a/c taken care of, and a couple other things, including catching up on some of my email.
Only to find out my website had been deactivated. Someone hacked it and put a bunch of virus/malware on it. I tried going through the site to take out the bad files, but some of the good files are infected too (which I guess makes them bad files, huh?). So I told the hosting company to just wipe it clean and I’ll start anew. Turns out the probable reason the site got hacked is that I had a bunch of WordPress installations that I hadn’t updated since I’ve been here at WordPress.com.
I still go back and forth, trying to decide which is the better blogging venue, here or a stand-alone version at my website. For now, it’s here. I guess. But I’m once again leaning towards going back to the stand-alone site. It’s all about the themes (layout, for those of you who don’t speak WordPress). I don’t like being at the mercy of other people’s designs. Of course, I could just fork over the $10 a year and create my own WP.com theme.
I’m going to look at this as a blessing. It’s probably time I got back to doing web stuff and stopped playing computer games. At least with web playing I’m learning something.
