This morning I noticed that my personal email inbox was completely empty.  This is very unusual as I generally keep the last few months worth of mail in there before archiving.  After checking the inbox via a few different clients and devices, I attempted to log in via webmail just to see what the server had to say only to find that my website index.php had been hijacked.  I called up my web host and was told, “Yup!  Looks like you’ve been hacked!”.  Turns out however the email issue was unrelated and the admins were working on restoring that already.  Then the support tech says ” I see you have a WordPress install.  What version are you running ?”  My answer: “Not exactly sure.  It’s been a while since I’ve updated.”  I went and checked via the cpanel and found I was still on WordPress 2.7.  Current version is 3.4.  The tech proceeded to give me a bit of grief about not having updated in “Years” and strongly suggested that I do.  So after restoring my index.php from another out-of-date WordPress install, I proceeded to upgrade WordPress to 3.4 and ll of my themes and plugins.  To my surprise, it took a little under an hour to get everything back up and running and looking the same yet all up-to-date.

So anyway, If anybody noticed that this site was down for a day or two, thats the reason why.  I’ll take the blame for letting the site get hacked by not keeping up with the security patches.  Now, I’m off to update the other site…

Yesterday Apple posted a teaser up on Apple.com saying “Stay Tuned for an exciting iTunes announcement this morning” and ” Tomorrow will be a day that you will remember forever”.  What could it be ?  Knowing Apple, it’s likely to be a pretty big deal.

Tomorrow has become today and the announcement was: The Beatles are now available on iTunes!  Yawn…  I understand that the Beatles are still a very popular group and that Apple has been unhappy not having them in their library for the past 8ish years but all this hype for just that?  Seems like a bit much to me.  Are we going to have a big announcement every time another artist is added to iTunes ?  I’m pretty sure this day isn’t going to stand out anymore than most work days for me.   This announcement was about as exciting as applesauce. Wake me up when something actually happens.

My girls had the day off from school for a teachers in service yesterday. Since the weather was beautiful, we decided to go for a drive and take pictures of the early foliage.  Here are the pictures we took yesterday.  Enjoy.
