Spencer has sold Tablet PC Buzz to John Hill at Allegiance Technology Partners. Read Spencer’s announcement John’s opening remarks I am just pausing here to wish both Spencer and John well in their respective unfolding futures.
Yes, the Buzz is down. Spencer is working on it.
The Buzz is back and Spencer talks about what happened. *Pulling hair out* Downtime from the last few days and there are some hints about some changes coming. In my previous post I alluded to a stand of weeds (controversy) that just needs no more water. So I’ll just leave it.
Yesterday I said, “I can’t imagine why The Buzz is a target. Can you?” Call it an expression of disbelief, followed by a rhetorical “Can you?” This was not a call for speculation but it seems that in some circles that is exactly what has happened.
Somebody hit the site again. It looks like a different exploit, but the site is defaced all the same. At this moment, Spencer (who was studying for an exam) is restoring the site. I have already captured the day’s posts and will try to get them reposted later tonight. Edit I can’t imagine why The Buzz is a target. Can you? This expression of personal disbelief and rhetorical question seem to have given rise to some speculation. It’s pretty hard to recant on the web, but I’ll do my best in my next post.
The forums at The Buzz were defaced this morning. This time the site stayed up, but you could not read the thread titles. I repaired the titles for the most recent discussions so that people would not be interrupted in the exchange of help and advice. Spencer was able to restore from the backups made at midnight last night and everything was back to normal by mid afternoon. It took a little longer but I was able to repost all the messages that had been posted between the backup and the restore operation. He was also able … Continue reading The Buzz bounces back
