NEW Take Our Word For It Blog - July 26 2008

Greetings, TOWFI Readers,

As you may have seen, our previous blog was hacked! The nerve! Our domain host offered an old version of WordPress blog software (we learned this tidbit when it was too late to be of any good to us!). That old version has lots of security holes, so some Russian hackers got in and hid lots of code in our blog, linking to sites about Viagra and similar subjects. If we deleted everything and started over with that old version of WordPress, we'd be open to re-attack. Therefore, we decided to move to Blogspot, which already hosted a blog for us (unrelated to TOWFI).

We were able to save all of our entries, and comments to them, from the old blog, and we will load them here soon.

As far as the features of this new blog, check out the etymology news at right! This and other cool options from Blogspot tell us we picked the right blog host!

We are truly planning to publish TOWFI again soon. Mike was involved in a time-intensive contract job which is now winding down. Looking forward to the extra free-time, he wants to completely revamp the site, in addition to creating new issues, so stay tuned! Etymology is on the way!

Best wishes,
Melanie and Mike
