Yet behind the new facade lie some very old-fashioned attitudes.

Website shenanigans

By on 06/7/2013 in Uncategorized with No Comments

Part of the reason I’ve been a bit quiet here is because is acting up a little, with hackers figuring out increasingly smart ways to inject malicious code into the site. After the most recent blacklisting by Google, I’m determined to get it under control. I’m turning off the comments feature – which has already been hacked a couple of times – to see if that keeps this site malware-free for a couple of months. Apologies if your comments have been, or will, get lost in the hacking battle. If that does the trick, I’ll find an alternative way to make sure that comments can continue to be posted. If not, looks like I’ll be migrating off WordPress.
