Wow, long couple of days.

I was pushing towards re-launching the front page, but made the tiniest mistake after staring at the computer screen for way too long on Sunday, and completely lost not only what I had done to that point on the front page, but I also managed to take out the message board in the process.

I deeply apologize for the inconvenience, but the message board data has once again been lost...at least it's only 4 months worth, instead of years worth after the March hack.

As you likely noticed on the way in, the front page is back. I managed to recover the look and feel, but repopulating old articles and tools will be a work in progress.

Thank you for your patience and hopefully this will be the last rebuild I have to do for awhile.

Go Steelers!

Fucking props to you yet again for the work getting the board back up man!

It's much appreciated. I'm sure like many others I checked way too many times to see if it was back. Withdrawal is a bitch.

This sucks. Is this something that's going to go on during the season you think? Thanks for all the work HN. Another test of your labor of love I guess.

This downtime was a total screw-up on my part. Classic case of trying to make things better but making things worse. Trust me, I won't do it again.

I can't predict whether we'll get hacked again (I've tried to secure things as much as possible, but there's simply no guarantees.

You do great work providing this site to us, hardnosed.

Take a couple of well-deserved days off.

If you ever need any help with maintenance duties, I happen to be a Software Engineer specializing in web technologies...

Ditto here, and I recently spent a year working Security and Identity Management, and just switched over to an OSGi gig...

That looked like Apache on the back end.
There are many things you can do to protect yourself from punk-assed childish hackers, even if DDOS is their game...

Thank you HN. This is site is core; mainstream media is everything it's not supposed to be and long ago ceased being what it's supposed to be. What can your board participants do to help you maintain and protect?

That sucks HN...thanks for all the hard work.

Does this mean another 40+ pages of Nick posting about hurry up, just too put on the record?

Nothing like a computer glitch, especially self caused. Thanks for getting it back up and running. It's a lot of work, and it is appreciated.

Thanks again, HN. Much appreciated. Particularly by the computer illiterate, like myself.

Thanks for keeping this place going HN.

Hate how complicated things are now, particularly the firewalls, ip address, and licenses.

My company just bought a $60,000 piece of equipment but the rep hasn't been able to get software to run on the network system.

Machine works great but I can't process it's data.
