Thank you, Turks.

So, we got hacked the other night. Or, our server got hacked. I’m not even sure which yet. Thanks for your patience, everyone. And thanks to the fine folks at Doreo for all the hard work it took to put Humpty-Dumpty back together again.

Carry on.

Update: Our man Bush43 fired me off a screen snip of our glorious moment in the sun.

About big jonny

The man, the legend. The guy who started it all back in the Year of Our Lord Beer, 2000, with a couple of pages worth of idiotic ranting hardcoded on some random porn site that would host anything you uploaded, a book called HTML for Dummies (which was completely appropriate), a bad attitude (which hasn’t much changed), and a Dell desktop running Win95 with 64 mgs of ram and a six gig hard drive. Those were the days. Then he went to law school. Go figure. Flagstaff, Arizona, USA

  1. That explains the dumb look my search engine kept giving me when I asked it to bring me here. Glad they got you up and running again, Jonny.

  2. …turks…the “critical mass”-ers of blogging…

    …not exactly the way to earn anyone’s empathy or respect…

  3. Will someone enlighten me, what is there to gain by hacking this or anyone else’s blog?

  4. To all of us, Happy stage one of the Tour. (cue cheesy news show theme)Pelican fall down go boom, get a big owie.

  5. Were they serving out malware? Is there anything visitors should be checking for?

  6. Nah.

    I used to make my living as a tech. My system is locked down better than 99%.

    The Turks were probably a bunch of script kiddies who got lucky.

    I wouldn’t be here now if there was a threat.

    Unlike, ya know, all the Russian porno sites I spend way too much time on.

    But I digress….

  7. Why did Constantinople get the works? That’s nobody’s business but the Turks…

  8. Nothing attracts Eurotrash like Smirnoff Ice. You guys laid the DB bait.

  9. it’s not insignificant that this happened to be Big Juan’s 1500th post, as counted in the sidebar over there. I think that’s just in this new format. pretty impressive, you big ham. thanks for all of this.
