Not quite there yet
As Elton John sang in Rocket Man, "all the science, I don't understand." What I do gather is that somebody hacked into my web site and was using it to send spam; it was "cloaked," so users couldn't see it, only search engines. Well, most users; kudos to the reader down at the AG's office who first spotted it and let me know about it. He was using Firefox 7 instead of Internet Explorer, and it was visible tohim. Boo to me for not doing more when he first told me; it wasn't until a couple of days later, when I got an email from John Grillot at White Fir Design, telling me that he'd discovered the hack while cleaning up another customer's website. Boo to E-Webscapes, my blog hosting company, which took five days to get me the info I needed to have White Fir clean up the site.
There are still problems. Google has removed my web site from their index because of the spam issue, but I've applied for reconsideration, which is sort of like an appeal, I guess, and maybe I'll have better luck with that than my legal ones; it should be restored soon. The big problem now is that if you click on the "read more" or on the heading of any post, it tells you that it can't find it. I should be able to fix that soon, too.
Don't worry that your computer might be affected if you came to the website over the past several weeks, which is apparently when the hack was done. As I said, the only thing it did was send out spam.
As soon as I get the last few issues resolved, I'll be up and running again. Thanks for your patience.
