Okay, so it’s probably actually old and dusty. Regardless of its hygiene, however, I found a backup that I made that was surprisingly more up-to-date than I expected. I remembered the occasion on which this backup was made, but thought that I had opted not to make it (don’t ask me why). Turns out that I did make it, I just had to find it. Find it I have, and now all but two or three of our old posts are once again available for your perusal.

The request for the text of any missing posts still stands, especially the post “Governmental Parenting.” If you have that, feel free to e-mail me or comment it here. Also, the backup was a database backup, and did not include the customized style sheet, so I think we’ll be sticking with the new look. Suggestions, comments, and so forth are always welcome!


  1. I liked the calender. I could tell at a glance if there was a new post.

  2. I checked my cache but as soon as I loaded the page and saw this, all the previous cache of your blog got erased. 🙁

    The new look is very cool. How did someone “pwn” the previous version of the block. Was the version out of date or did the person find a n00bie way to get a password?

  3. My spelling is pathetic…sorry for it.

  4. To my understanding, the hack was to the server, not the blog itself. Someone got in and changed all “index.*” files that were 777 to nothing but “spykids pwnz you… I wouldn’t have these files flagged that way, but the way Javier does permissions, the blog and forum (which need to be able to change some of their files to run) can’t change any files that aren’t 777. Not to worry, though… new arrangements are in progress that should fix that sort of thing. 🙂
