The List

Well, things were looking so good, and then they were not.

4) Wrap presents. - mostly done
5) Bake Christmas cookies. - late
6) Clean up house and vacuum. - late
7) Buy groceries for Christmas dinner. - Tonight
8) Plan out the menu. - Tonight

This isn't good. What happened, was that I found out that the reason my friend Luny got hacked was due to an outdated phpbb script which I was also using on my Pets Site. Prence showed me an article (I'd link it but the link's at home and I'm at work) about this virus exploit thingy, and it sorta looked like I was maybe a few hours away from being hit.

I stopped all Christmas activity and tried to fix it. The problem was that I was many versions out of date (don't ask) and I didn't know wtf I was doing. Much thanks to Luny and Prence for helping, and to Prence for eventually making it work. You guys rock! <3

Quite frankly, buying groceries, baking cookies, house clean-up and finishing wrapping looks like a pretty tall order. I'm not sure if I can make it all happen tonight, but damnit, I'm going to try!

This is why I like coding everything manually. I hate php scripts as well as greymatter type stuff. It just makes me feel like I'm not in control of my own work.

Yup. I hear you.

When did Luny get hacked? Anyway, you're more of a geek than I realised.

Hmm, let's see. He got hacked maybe 2-3 days ago?


he still hasn't fixed all the problems, just has the main page back up.

And yes, I'm like 100% geek :P

There are viruses everywhere, I keep detecting trojans. Not the condoms either!

I think it's more like he got hit by a virus that's attacking vulnerable php scripts than a deliberate hack. But it's interesting that he got hit and I didn't.
