If you’ve dropped by in the past day or so, you would likely have noted that my humble little blog had apparently run afoul of a couple of Syrian hackers. Yes, Between Linux and Anime was hacked, and all my hard-written posts and precious comments trashed. And I haven’t a clue why :( A random hit? Or could it be that I praised the iPad just a little too much? The truth is I don’t like the iPad either, my dear Syrians, so how bout you quit picking on poor and miserable little bloggers like myself, eh?
Anyway, thanks to the hosting fiasco that vaporised my old blog half a year ago, I have now become much more equipped to deal with disasters of this sort. This time I had a backup ready that had all my posts up to the “end of railgun” one, and the remaining two latests posts I managed to scrounge up from the depths of Google’s and my browser’s caches. So zero total post lost and minimal damage on that front. The comments front didn’t do so well though. Unfortunately, I was unable to salvage a good number of recent ones, in spite of my best efforts scouring the search engine page caches, so I’ll have to apologize if your comment is among the lost.
I hope that’s the last I’ll see of this in awhile :( Again – Dustin, RP, Keiri
, and all the folks who had commented on my iPad post – I’ve seen and I appreciate your comments. Moushiwake Gozaimasen Deshita :(
Edit: somehow I managed to find all the comments to the iPad post on a Google cache, so those are restored! As best as I could anyway :)
