Yes, Murdoc’s email was hacked and sent out tons of spam Sunday night and Monday morning.
I think it’s under control now, but if you’ve received any crap after about 10:30am EDT today (29 Aug) let me know.
Here’s hoping all the MO readers out there have a great Christmas.
As always, keep our servicemen and women in your prayers.
God bless us all.
MO was off the air for a quite a while today. I think everything is back in order.
Sorry about that.

UPDATE: If you’re not on record as having left a comment on MO before, your comment will go into moderation. Don’t worry, it will be approved in the location it was originally left in. This will have the effect of “bumping” down comments left after it.
I had to implement comment moderation for new commenters after some particularly friendly things were said by some drive-by types.
While dealing with a virus infection on some of my sites a couple of days ago I decided to pull the plug on MichiBlogger.net. I started it up several years back but never had time to focus on Michigan news and events like I wanted.
Though I don’t like pulling down content, I also don’t feel like maintaining a site that isn’t seeing anything from me and is seeing virtually no traffice whatsoever. I mean, it was like Air America traffic level.
A number of readers have alerted Murdoc to a possible virus problem with his sites. After checking into it, tech support found some infected files in an old installation and will be removing them shortly.
I hope this takes care of the issue. Many thanks to those who took the time to let me know, as I was not seeing it on my end.
UPDATE: This looks like it might be resolved now.
Murdoc’s apologies for the lack of posting. It’s been a bit of a wild couple of weeks, culminating with the Boston Marathon yesterday. Running that race is a lifelong dream accomplished, and Murdoc wants to encourage everyone to keep your own dreams alive, even when it looks like they’ll never come to pass. I never thought I’d get to Boston and had pretty much given up on running altogether for nearly a decade. But here I am.
Anyway, I’m on vacation for the rest of the week so posting will continue to be a bit light. But I’ll be getting back into it and hopefully will be back to full steam next week.
MO back on the air.
Some terrible problem at my host that took days to recover from. Not terribly pleased, but what can you do?
Murdoc’s apologies for the problems.
UPDATE: Also, I want to thank those who emailed with concern for old Murdoc. Everything is fine and blogging will resume shortly.
UPDATE 2: It appears that a small amount of content may have been lost, including some reader comments. My understanding of the issue is that a problem with the RAID on the server MO is hosted on pretty much hosed everything and they had to restore from back-up. I’ve got my own back-up which may or may not be slightly more recent than the one they used, but we’ve already started down a new road and I’m hesitant to attempt a switch back at this point. So we’re just going to soldier on from this point.
