I am still here.
I know, it’s been pretty quiet around here for the last couple of weeks. I guess I took a little unintended Internet break (at least from this space here). If you missed me, I am sorry.
I try not to disappear without notice (though if you follow me on Twitter, you know that I was alive and well). I think I was just a little bit wiped out from VEDA in August. I also attended a symposium from work at the end of last month, which was really awesome but which left me utterly exhausted, and then I had a myriad of things (of the bureaucratic kind, surprise!) to take care of at the same time. With all of that going on, I didn’t get to write as much as I wanted to. It wasn’t as much for the lack of ideas than for a lack of motivation to sit down and write out all my thoughts. There are a few things that have occupied my mind lately and I am hoping to write about some of this stuff soon.
On top of that, my blog has been hacked twice in the last couple of months and I am a little bit concerned. It was not in a bad way (nothing was deleted or anything) and I know how to temporarily fix it (it’s a corrupted index.php file inside the folder that contains your blog theme, which deletes your index page and which then needs to be replaced a file from the original theme installation), but I hope to find out how to prevent this from happening in the future.
If you have any WP coding knowledge and know of those kind of hacks, please share your wisdom! Since I don’t want to have this happen again, it might mean that I have to update my WP installation and take some precautions. I’ve also been thinking about revamping my blog layout and content a bit while I am at it. Sometimes it’s good to take a step back, re-evaluate and make appropriate changes. This might be coming as well over the next few weeks.
But for now, tell me, how have you all been?
