Feeling More Secure

spambot

With some help from the WordPress community, I have managed to increase the security of the blog.  I am still getting dinged a thousand times a day from overseas spammers, but the attacks are now bouncing off.

Hacked Again

Can’t believe that I got hacked again.  It was a code insertion attack that happened after I had installed a third-party plugin in this blog.  Took a week to get things cleaned up.  I started getting notices from my web hosting company that I was spamming bad email addresses.  Hackers in Moscow managed to turn my blog into a spam bot.  It was sending out thousands of emails a day.  No spam for the last two days.

Easter Eggs

The nest now has two eggs and the house finches have started to incubate them.

Spring, finally

This small nest suddenly appeared in a window box this week.  Maybe spring is finally here.

April Open Studio

Have had so little time for projects lately.  At the very least, made a resolution to try to attend every open studio at the arts center for a year.
