Hacking | From the blog of Nicholas C. Rossis, author of science fiction, the Pearseus epic fantasy series and children's booksThis hasn’t been a good week for web companies. Facebook, WhatsUp, Instagram, Google Drive, and Gmail came under unspecified attacks and had trouble or even went offline for hours. In the case of Facebook, the troubles lasted some 48 hours, making this the worst such incident in the history of the medium.

And my web host was hacked, resulting in hours of my work gone. Poof. I will probably spend the next week or two just bringing everything up to speed.

Along with the stuff that went missing was a number of my posts on this blog. Things are now back to normal, but I didn’t realize that subscribers would get notifications with each new post as they were restored. I apologize for flooding your Inbox. Also, apologies to anyone whose comment disappeared.

Normal service will resume tomorrow!
