after the hacking, and links
I have had a week. Obviously the site got hacked this week, and without the help of one of my fellow Money Writers I would have been sunk, since I didn’t have the technical expertise to deal with the attack. I’d like to think I’ve acquired some basic coding skills, but I quickly realized that I’m not even vaguely capable of dealing with serious coding problems.
I’m overwhelmed with projects right now – landscaping, house, blog, personal finance, etc. One of the things I’ve come to realize is that you can’t allow the to-do list to grow too large or you become overwhelmed and shut down. I’m close to that point now – I have so much to do I just don’t feel like doing anything, which is clearly unproductive.
Well, on to the links:
