Last week my very old hosting service was hacked to serve ads and partially deny administrative access.

Everything important was backed up so I was able to restore everything quickly. Score one for having regular backups that you don’t have to think about. Shout out to https://updraftplus.com backing up to DropBox and OneDrive regularly.

This site took a little longer because I had been neglecting it for a while and had none of this new-fangled easy and reliable backup software. I had an old posts  backup, so what you’re seeing is a hand-restored brainsnorkel.com.

There is Unicode conversion weirdness and missing links, but it’s back. I’m not going to bother about restoring the old pages unless there is rioting in the streets.
