…And We’re Back

msti TECH DIFFICULTIESAs you’ve probably noticed, the last few days have been kind of rough around here. Yes, I got myself targeted by a hacker, and yes, it caused a ton of problems. Even when I thought I had it resolved, it came back, and so eventually I just took the site offline for a few days to sort it all out, and my sincere apologies to anyone who was inconvenienced or otherwise confused by the strange messages this site was giving off. I’ve managed to restore everything from backup save for the few most recent posts — uh, sorry, Josh Wall, though I’m sure I could restore him if I really wanted to — and I’ve learned a lot about database security so that this doesn’t happen again in the future.

So if you’re one of the dozens of people who emailed, tweeted, or otherwise informed me that my site was broken, thanks for caring enough to reach out, and sorry again. We’ll have a real new post — you know, the one I never wanted to post in the first place — later on.

Lorenzo Bundy, Glenn Dishman returning to the Isotopes in 2013. Franklin Stubbs, once an Albuquerque Duke, moves up from Double-A to take over as hitting coach. Phew. That will make my life easier in 2013.

Omg, I'm unexpectedly going in to see The Hobbit. I'll be back in 3 hours, or dinnertime, whichever comes first.

 @IBBFTW I'm going to see The Guilt Trip a little later, after drinks, of course. I'm just happy it isn't 3 hours long

 @efb I think it was me.  Well, I've never recommended it, but I've certainly admitted on here to drinking lots of it.

 @efb  @IBBFTW I consider myself a pretty accomplished geek, and i absolutely loathed the previous three flicks (all of which the wife made me watch). 

 

i realize i'm in the minority on this, though the reviews for this one haven't been too kind.

 @efb its good shit thats cheap enough so you dont feel bad making old fashions, manhattens or mint juleps out of it, and its tastey enough to have it on the rocks
