Very sorry to hear about the hack, but also glad to hear that all the midnight oil burned will make for a more secure platform. Helluva welcome back from vacation, but here's to better times in the future!

Glad to see you back up and running. I knew you were in trouble when I went to the forums a few days ago and saw that they were hacked.

I didn't see any political messages or statements, so I assume the hacker(s) just wanted to prove they could do it. I have a real problem grasping the hacker mentality. I could at least understand the guerilla mentality of it if there were political statements involved, but I've never understood the destructive "look what I can do" mentality. It's probably some bullied, pimple-faced kid lashing out at a cruel world, or it could just be the hacker is compensating for something, like guys who buy Corvettes.

Either way, I hope he/they are reading this and know that I think so little of them that they're not even worth getting angry at. I can only get mad at people I respect. The rest aren't worth the effort.

Welcome back.

This site has been a daily read since I found the site through my Ipaq 3670 in '00 or '01. PPCT is my favorite site but Jason has developed a great stable of sites in Thoughts Media.

Thank the Lord you are back. You were missed.

I'm glad to see that you were able to get it back up and running. I've missed your sites the last few days. Being a developer myself and a part-time (involuntary ) server admin, I feel your pain. Thanks for all of your hard work!

I have a somewhat vengeful personality, so that certainly appeals to part of me, but I also believe in eternal justice - that everyone is called someday to answer for their actions in life. This hacker will one day have to answer for what he's done.

Even though my X30 - running 2003SE - is so OLD that an ever increasing number of new apps won't even run on it anymore, PCT is still a daily stop.

Am glad you are back, and hope the Hacker(s) are done....
