Author’s note: Hacked

It’s been a hard week in the land of Starwalker writing. As I’m sure most of you are aware, this site was hacked and I’ve been fighting to get control back since it happened. I’ve only just regained control of the back end and this is the first chance I’ve had to let you all know what’s happening! The full story is over on my writing blog for anyone who wants details.

The good news is that nothing has been lost. I’m going through the process of cleaning up the debris and reinforcing the website to prevent this happening again. It’s a lot of fiddling about and will take some time. I’ll try to get this week’s post up tonight if I can butΒ it might be tomorrow before I can get to it. I ask for your patience right now, and hopefully this will all be a memory soon!

Thanks to everyone who has helped me get my site back, through advice, diving into the database for me, and support. I am blessed!

PS: There are some minor errors hanging around. I know about them. Fixes coming! πŸ™‚

    just glad you’re back in control….

    *throws in a round of free comforting hugs*

    and im quite happy the site wasn’t a total loss…

    Agreed, though this is the first I knew about it aside from a few references in the comments section. I just thought the site was down for maintenance. Anyway, congratulations on regaining control. Maybe you can ask Starry to let her little pet out on them. I would give you a hug but for some reason it feels like one of those awkward stranger hugs… (gah that’s a hard word to spell)

    It’s all good, Retsof.

    Normal service will resume soon!

    you know.. starry might have some more room in the brig for these miscreants….. they are some sort of pirates too after all….

    just for the time it takes us to decide their fates … πŸ˜‰

    Congrats on getting your site back.

    Just wanted to say I really love your story, and it would be a shame if your logs had become corrupt.

    Keep on chuggin’ along!

    Targetdrone – uh oh. They’d better watch out if you guys are in charge of inventing their punishment… πŸ˜‰

    Kagedviper – welcome to the blog! Great to hear from you. Glad you like the story!

    More coming soon. I’m polishing up this week’s post at the moment. πŸ™‚
