Friday our dedicated server was hacked – someone took down our website including my photo blog and our main photo website. It is very frustrating, but after a lot of hard work by our web-host (more on that later this week) we were back in action by Saturday.
Once the dust settled all that was lost my Anza-Borrego blog post from last Friday. That wasn’t a big deal, it was a short one, but I was bummed to lose the comment that went along with it. I greatly appreciate it when anyone takes time from their busy day to leave a comment but this one was extra special as it was written by David Leland Hyde, the son of the late Philip Hyde. Philip Hyde was a famous pioneer landscape photographer who was the photographer for many books including Alaska: The Great Land in 1974, so I thought it was pretty neat to hear from his son.
While I will never understand why really smart people spend their time trying to disrupt other peoples lives by hacking their computers and website, I’m grateful that the damage was minimal. If anyone else left comments on Friday, I’m sorry I didn’t get to see them.
This is the second time I have been hacked. You might remember this post: http://www.my-photo-blog.com/visitor-stats-and-double-crossing-porn-scammers-and-hackers
