Welcome to the New Original Times! (again)

September 27, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

Greetings Underwater Spirits!

As you might have noticed, we had a few issues with our old installation of WordPress. 😦 More specifically, the outdated version of WordPress we were running had some security vulnerabilities which were exploited by a worm. The worm then proceeded to infect our database and mess with who-knows-what, resulting in broken links, back doors, compromised accounts, and so on (you can read more on this worm if that kind of thing interests you).

Well, instead of messing around with manual cleanup and such, we decided the safest thing to do was simply drop our old blog and transfer what content we could to a completely new one. So, that’s what we’ve done, and here we are with a crisp, shiny new blog at WordPress.com. πŸ™‚

Pretty much all actual content (posts, comments, tags, etc.) has been preserved, but files that were uploaded to our old WordPress were lost. Additionally, you can’t use your old accounts – you’ll need an account with WordPress.com to post here.

You might also have noticed that almost all the posts from our old blog ended up attributed to AA (me). Rest assured, this was simply a side effect of the transfer and I am not in any way attempting to claim ownership of your work. πŸ˜› When you sign up and get invited to this blog, I’ll go through and correct the author labels ASAP.

So yeah. Feel free to register with WordPress.com and e-mail us so we can invite you and have everyone happily posting on the Original Times again. πŸ˜‰

Note: The ‘e-mail us’ step is important. We can’t invite you without your e-mail address!

      Which is kinda unusual for me, I might add. πŸ˜›
