It’s not just me, there’s a possible DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attack affecting Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp

This is happening one day after a 60 Minutes interview with a former Facebook employee, revealed to be the whistleblower behind revelations of allegations that Facebook placed profits over public safety.
This is a developing story, more here as needed.
New top-of-page image (The big banner is gone, but the Toast in Toast AND JAM! remains, in a “remastered” version (reconstructed from a version of the original artwork I carried across three hard drives and two desktop computers.)
There’s been a slight tweak to the bottom of the page. All security and stability updates are checked often. Somehow, I managed to log over 1000 site views over the weekend, and I’ve connected with the person I mirrored blog posts from. Hi, Paige! ^_^
Carry on, folks!
Yes, I’m there as well, as of September 11, 2014 – http://julieannem.deviantart.com/
Yes, it’s my day today. Another year older, still not doing regular content updates to the site, but I can schedule some.
The cut-over from the servers in Reno, Nevada, to Tempe, Arizona is complete, and I’m just making sure things work, and I can still admin and post.
Spam still crushed, as always.
For now, sleep…
Well, the tail end of a temp job in a distribution center. It’s helped me rack up some more recent work experience (Well, after being out of work for a year.) and of course, rebuilt the war chest funds.
That’s about it. New content will appear here… Eventually.
Seriously… I’ve been tweaking some things behind the scenes. I’m going to be a total tease and not tell you what has changed. If things break, I’ll fix them.
Locked down, secured, and hopefully compatible among all modern browsers, and with a decent mobile version to boot!
Someone tried to brute force password reset to take over this blog. It is NOT dormant. I’m just busy with other things going on from time to time.
In any case, today was a good time to do full backups of everything on the website, harden security in a few areas, and rotate my passwords. Thanks for reminding me, chummer.
Still here, still out there when I can, still dealing with the lovely Arizona heat in Metro Phoenix…
And, we’re back, though we never really left.
Over the past day, my web hosting provider relocated their data centers from Reno, Nevada, to Tempe, Arizona, conveniently a lot closer to me, and so far, it looks like the transition went smoothly.
More content as needed. Life continues on. Welcome to the future…
Fixed up a rather troublesome glitch that made the footer disappear, and broke the FAQ section. It’s working now, and the errant plugin that caused things to break is gone. Normal broadcasts resume.
Thanks for your understanding, and yes, I go that extra mile just for you! *hugs* ^_^
Yes, for the last three months since the April 7 post, my world’s been tied up in getting a few more “bucket list” things out of the way, while preparing for a relocation to Phoenix, AZ, for the next few years. (Give or take)
I miss California, and all my friends there, and I hope to visit as often as I can, but perhaps, like my new “home” city’s namesake, I’ll have a chance to be reborn, and refocus on what I need to do.
However, I did get a few more things out of the way…
