My site seems to be un-red-eyed.

Please leave a comment if you can see my blog. It would make me happy!

I'm a long-time Mac and iOS developer. I'm also a big fan of Ruby on Rails and relational databases. I tend to work remotely, in my basement with occasional trips to the office. I'm also a big videophile, both TV and film, and can't wait for a good, inexpensive home 4k solution.

    Since I bravely ignored the badware warnings before, could you tell me what sorts of badware it is even possible for a browser to download without warning me? Sounds like crazy paranoia. Maybe even tell me/us which specific kinds they allege were being distributed?

    Someone subverted the plugins mechanism in WordPress to add files in the plugins directory that pointed to spam sites. I assume this was supposed to increase their linkage count, which raises their prominence in Google search results.

    I nuked the files, and upgraded WordPress to a newer version that has plugged this hole.

    Fun, fun, fun.
