Site Messed-Up, Lost Posts, Now Working Again.


I really can’t confirm what happened to the PTBC server’s database overnight. I did receive emails from my security software indicating an “increased attack rate” (“…blocked 141 attacks over the last 10 minutes…”), and a subsequent automatic locking-out of an IP located in Germany (but who really knows where these jerks come from Ottawa); and at least one other security issue and warning popped-up early this morning. But whatever, we had backups!

Unfortunately, the latest backups I had were from just before the articles that I posted yesterday, and yesterday was the first day I posted anything since returning from vacation. It was after the articles were posted that the problem occured. Perfect timing! So that means hours of work are down the drain, and they were juicy posts too!

I’m a little tired and frustrated after all that.
