My blogrolls was hacked. So they're all offline for now. No idea if they'll ever be back.

I'll toss up something that works "good enough" shortly, using the Technorati links and etc. to find out who's linked to me and reverse-link'em back...

Sigh. I just can't understand why anybody would want to hack a free service like that. There's just some nasty people out there, I guess...

  1. Yeah. There ARE some nasty people out there...and they're running for President and VEEP on the Republican ticket. (although those two probably are the hackers...they don't use The Google or email, even though they "invented" the Blackberry."

  2. OOPS..Typo. I meant to say those two probably AREN'T the hackers.

  3. I never cared for the Blogrolling service anyway. Whatever you're using now looks pretty good, tho...

  4. ahh, I was looking for my blogroll in a txt link and realized it was two computers ago. Back up, who me? Thanks for the tecnorati idea, I was getting tired of googling you yesterday.

  5. The hackers were probably trying to hijack the service to turn it into trojan distribution channel so that people coming to see their daily snark have their computer turned into a zombie.

    There's money to be made in taking over people's computers to distribute male enhancment emails.

  6. They're back.

    Blogrolling, I mean.

  7. Yep. I noticed. That's why I moved the Blogger blogroll off to the side. I've also downloaded/backed up my blogrolls (eek! I'm a geek and I didn't have my blogrolls backed up? Bad penguin! Bad bad bad!). I'm trying to figure out a way to import all the Blogrolling links into the Blogger blogrolls without cutting and pasting but I think I'm just gonna stick with Blogrolling for now because Blogger's blogroll implementation just ain't all there yet.
