We were hacked!

Posted by Kenny on June 13, 2008

It looks like this blog was recently hacked with a rather nasty, malware-distributing trojan, and apparently this has been a rather wide-spread problem. Hopefully there weren’t too many visitors turned away by the “Warning – visiting this web site may harm your computer!” message from Google. Here is a blog article with more information about the problem. I deleted all of the WordPress files and upgraded to WordPress 2.5.1, then reloaded all of the ScribbishWP theme files from a backup. Finally, I had to hand-clean my WordPress config files and a few static HTML files. I asked for a Google review of the site after the cleanup and it looks like we’re in the clear for now, but please email me if you notice anything like this happening again!

VSIP event at Dodger Stadium

Posted by Kenny on September 13, 2005

The company I work for, SPI Dynamics, is a Microsoft VSIP partner. The Visual Studio Integration team from Microsoft held a special partner-only tailgate party last night at Dodger Stadium with tickets to the Los Angeles Dodgers vs. Colorado Rockies game. I’m not a sports fanatic, and being from Atlanta I’m definately not a Dodgers fan (Go Braves!), but sitting in the second row of the field level just inside the right field foul pole was a pretty cool experience even for a geek.

Heading to PDC 05

Posted by Kenny on September 09, 2005

Next week I’m heading out to Los Angeles for the Microsoft Professional Developers Conference. I’m sure I’ll learn about a lot of cool new technologies that I won’t be able to take advantage of yet, but hopefully I’ll at least be able to find some time when I get back to blog about a few of them.

New tech blog

Posted by Kenny on September 01, 2005

My name is Kenny Pitt. Very few people have ever heard of me, and I don’t expect that to change just because I started a blog. I’ll probably lose interest in this after a month or two and stop posting, but who knows?

I created this blog for all the geeky, technical stuff that nobody over on my family blog is going to want to read. It’s a place for me to capture links to cool applications, useful technical info, occasional thoughts about programming, and maybe even a code snippet or two. If anyone but me finds this interesting or useful, I’ll be amazed, but please let me know if you do.
