Hackers can kiss my…

The following was posted yesterday on another site when this one was taken over by hackers. If you stopped by, you probably noticed. Have no fear. I have not been recruited by Hamas regardless of how it appeared here. (I’m talking to you CIA guy opening up a file on me.) A more complete post coming soon.

This morning I awoke to discover that my website had been hacked by a militant Palestinian group, which is not the sort of thing you expect to say when you’re a mystery author who writes about zany Chihuahuas. My tech team – which consists entirely of my husband and his very large brain – is attempting to restore order. This could take awhile. In the meantime, this post will be a clearinghouse of Twitter and Facebook updates, by which I mean an outlet for my impotent rage.

My website was hijacked by – I swear I am not making this up – Palestinian militants.

Managed to removed their crap. Still trying to restore all of my info.

If they grew up in my neighborhood, their mother would make them rake my leaves and wash my car for a month as punishment.

(Realized we had not managed to remove their crap. Cussing ensues.)

Hackers had the nerve to sign their work. That’s it. Palestinian militants are officially off my Christmas card list.

Best friend asked what my plan was for dealing with militant hijacked website. Does impotent rage and cussing count as a plan?

Just in case you were wondering, I do not favor jihad. Mostly I’m into bluesy singer/songwriters and cool ice cream flavors.

Still attempting to regain control of hijacked website. Husband refers to necessary repairs as “open heart surgery.”

Progress on website debacle! (Holds breath in anticipation.)

This just in: Husband and his big brain save website. Ticker tape parade expected down Wilshire in his honor.
