bleh

My internet access (most of the city’s in fact) was down because Cox Internet messed up. Grrr…this just isn’t my week. I went to my ECON class today (more on that later) and realized that I had somehow forgotten to go to last Thursday’s class…I’ve missed many classes during my 22 years, but I’ve never, forgotten about one.

I think I need a “mood” indicator….today’s is “Highly Irritable”

hacked

Someone hacked my server today. No, they didn’t deface my homepage with some porn — they got into my arg gallery and “ATH” decided to delete my collection of paintings by Tamara de Lempicka. Sadly, I didn’t have a backup since that was it was recently added. How pathetic is that? Some peope hack Microsoft, IBM, CIA, etc, but these punks decided to go after my art. Anyway, with the database file safely out of the way (something I should have done as a precaution), this shouldn’t happen again. Just shows that you can never be too carefull about your mission-critical…online art gallery.
Edit: They struck again, exploiting a vulnerabilty in the gallery code. I traced the attack to Montevideo, Uruguay (IP: 200.149.0.209) If anyone want’s no snitch to ISP (yo no hablo espanol) it’s http://www.telemar.net.br/

Arght!

I lost my keys today. I got off the bus and unlocked my bike on my way to get some food but when I got to Taco Cabana for some burritos, the keys were gone. I retraced my path, but someone had definitely taken the keys in the five minutes it took me to come back to the bike rack. Needless to say, I was pissed. I was locked out of my apartment, unable to leave my bike anywhere, and my roommate doesn’t come home till late at night. When I got home, I climbed on the rails of my second story balcony, removed the net, and forced the window open, jumped to the ledge, climbed up, opened the window, and barely managed to avoid breaking the computer I landed on inside. It took me five minutes just to clear of my desk enough to step on it, but thankfully, none of the neighbors called the cops for me. Unfortunately, I am still going to have to get new locks for my bike, and keys/locks for my door and bike. Grrr. Lets hope whoever has my keys doesn’t use the Net much
