"If we are anything we must be a democracy of the intellect. We must not perish by the distance between people and government, between people and power....

So that means prett

Basically someone logged in, deleted my posts and pages (but not the uploads- thank goodness!) and added some lovely malicious content. They deleted my pages so that any link to my site would redirect to the bad content. Anyway. My hosts don't really like that so shut my site down within an hour from what I can tell.

While the surgery was very successful it turns out the cancer had changed and he had several aggressive tumours in his abdomen. He had been to the vets many many times in between so it really is very scary how fast these grew and how far from obvious they were. We had 13 amazing years, which covers a signi
