Sep 24, 2014 / 0 comments

So I discovered hacks in three wordpress sites I maintain. One of them had a weird URL — it seems like the hack wasn’t well written and some bits of code were added at the end of the URL. Oddly though the site worked all right. I couldn’t figure     [...] more

out of wack

This photo of me was taken on new year’s day. I’m sitting in a coffee shop at the Guggenheim museum facing others who look, well, who knows, more inspired than me? And actually not overexposed. But I cut them out to protect the innocent… OMG,     [...] more
