I was hacked the other day and in the process of fixing the problem and making sure nothing dodgy was happening I had to change multiple passwords. Which then led to none of the fic databases being able to connect because I totally forgot to go in and change them there...

Thank you so much to [livejournal.com profile] aadler for getting in touch and letting me know they were down.

They should be fixed now and back up and running - if anyone can't access anything please do let me know asap so I can fix 'em!

(I know, I'm posting a lot today - sorry!)

...moments lost... - the main page of my website is now fully up - although two of the links are not quite active yet, they should be tonight.

...pointless nostalgic... (aka Fandom's Bitch) is my own personal archive. This is hosted on the ever-wonderful [livejournal.com profile] wenchpixie's domain rather than the ML server.

I have also created new syndicated LJ feeds for most of the archive sites

[livejournal.com profile] fandomsbitch - the feed for Pointless Nostalgic
[livejournal.com profile] handonheart_bx - the feed for Hand On Heart (Buffy/Xander)
[livejournal.com profile] keytotheheart - the feed for Key To The Heart (Dawn/Xander)
[livejournal.com profile] effects_feed - the feed for Effects of a Troubled Heart (Faith/Xander)
[livejournal.com profile] sineya_updates - the feed for Daughters of Sineya (Slayer-centric site)
[livejournal.com profile] saltandburn_rss - the feed for the Salt & Burn fic archive.

and the all important one - [livejournal.com profile] ineedaparrotrss - the new feed for INaP

There are still three one more to add so rather than spam you, I'll edit this post during the day once they're done!

(yes, I'm aware that the links up on the INAP one are slightly odd, it's cause I hadn't made a change in the admin pages. It's fixed now and all the links from now on should be the correct ones. Sorry!)

Thank you all for your absolute patience and understanding over the past little while whilst I've been transferring files, setting up servers, clearing things up and generally flailing at my FTP client refusing to connect to the interwebs.

But, after far longer than I had really hoped, the sites are back!!!

I Need a Parrot - the general Xander Harris site, which accepts fic of all genres, ratings, pairings and types (with the sole exception of RPF/RPS)

Hand on Heart - the Buffy/Xander and Buffy&Xander site.

Key to the Heart - the Dawn/Xander and Dawn&Xander site.

Effects of a Troubled Heart - the Faith/Xander and Faith&Xander site.

Daughters of Sineya - the Slayer-centric site.


I'm working on tidying things up a little, but they are up and running and raring to go!!

All of the auto-archive sites attached to the Moments-Lost domain are now set to maintenance mode. That means that you cannot update, edit, delete, read, review or sign up to any of the sites at the moment.

I've backed up all of the files to my own computer*, I've backed up the MySQL databases, and theoretically it's all ready to start from scratch with the new host.

The only slight problem is that because of payment methods, my current account is going to expire before the new one is set up. That means the changeover will not be as smooth as I had hoped, nor will it provide me with a safety net. Since I suck at MySQL and since I remember having trouble uploading the databases to the current server as it is, I may be asking for a little help or advice a couple of weeks down the line.

Again I'll keep you updated!

[livejournal.com profile] inapadmin people? I've posted this over there as well but just in case it's not on your default view or something, you three will be able to see more than normal visitors to the site. Please do not make any changes to anything (either in your own account or in the validation queue) because it will mess up the backed up files.

* I got a weird message on my ftp programme while I was doing this yesterday. "The computer loves you. Trust the computer." I kid you not - I checked back through the status messages and it wasn't me imagining things - it really is there. SysAdmins, aren't they just the whackiest?!

Well, actually a relaunch. Unfortunately when my domain was hacked last summer I lost all of the content on the database for this site so it really is starting from scratch. But I know that I've missed this place, and from some comments I know a few of you have as well. So, fanboys and fangirls, shout it from the rooftops - Effects of a Troubled Heart is back baby!
Come on over, sign up, and lets get those Faith/Xander and Faith&Xander stories back out there! I hate dial up... have I mentioned that yet today?!

Bored out of my skull right now and can't leave for another 20 minutes. Wonderful.

Anyways - coupla things. I've updated the nominees page on WKA and I swear I will email all the nominees this weekend, I am so sorry I've been lax about that! The 'ship categories seem to be doing well this round, we have enough nominations to open up the 'het' category into Xander/Buffy and Xander/Dawn (doesn't seem all that long ago that was a pairing that caused a lot of angry reactions!) and the 'slash' category has enough for a Xander/Spike sub-category. Where are all the Xander/Cordy, Xander/Faith, Xander/Angel, Xander/Oz nominations this year? Huh? Huh? *g*
Also - plan to have all of the Xander sites updated in some way this weekend - mostly layout wise, I'm working with stop-gap layouts right now while the content is being fixed but I really want to get back to the fantastic banners Kayla Shay and [livejournal.com profile] gumboy made for I Need A Parrot and I want some fandom specific options for HoH and EoaTH - plus EoaTH needs to be formally revealed still!
I'm going to play about with Photoshop over the weekend and hopefully I can get over my graphics block which'll mean the finished Faith fics can be posted - yay!

And... I need help with the [livejournal.com profile] zeppo_stillness community. I keep forgetting to close challenges and announce winners all the time, would anyone be willing to help out by posting reminders, some challenges, maybe even make some banners for the winners? Lemme know!

Theoretically my car is booked in to be fixed tomorrow, I say theoretically because my sister was going to phone the garage and she hasn't mentioned it since I called later in the day I asked her to do it and she said "I haven't phoned yet" so...Joy.

Right, I'm done time-wasting now, gotta go look for some actual work to do. :)

I have no confidence in myself right now so I'm hoping someone won't mind taking a look at something for me... It's the new layout for Effects of a Troubled Heart - it's not on the site yet, if you're interested in taking a look and telling me everyone's sick of that picture, *g*, email me please? shona[at]moments-lost.co.uk

Ta!

Now - memes which show how screwed up I really am.... )

ETA What's that crappy 80s pseudo-dance thingy that has some castrated guy screeching out "I feel lo-o-o-ove, I feel lo-o-o-ove..."? 'Cause I'm currently hearing that at loud volume coming through my living room wall. My neighbour is so gay. </sarcasm> *headdesk* second edit - okay, now it's dance crap. Have I mentioned lately that I hate dance crap? So Dale, the higher you turn that volume up, the higher my TV volume will go up. And guess what? I got no problem with listening to DS9 at an insanely high volume... At least now I know what all the drilling and hammering that's been going on has been about - apparently there's a new nightclub through the wall from me... (I'm kidding, it's just my 40-something recently-single male neighbour trying to reclaim his youth by buying a stupid sized sound system for his house...)

I feel like I should be whispering this - Effects of a Troubled Heart is back up! At the moment there's no new content and the design hasn't changed, but it's been away for so long that I really missed it. I will be changing the layout and adding things soon, but for the moment - we're back!

They're not even trying to keep my custom now.

My email:

Thank you for informing me about this. This is not a script I have uploaded and as this is now the fourth time a malicious script like this has appeared on my webspace without my knoweldge I'm extremely concerned about the security of your web servers. I have checked, re-checked and had others check my coding, the scripts I have loaded and every piece of content I have put online. I know for a fact that the 'weakness in the code' is not from my end.

In the past I have spoken to your technical support advisers about this with varying degrees of success and overall have found your company to be unhelpful.


Their reply:


Thank you for contacting us.
You can cancel by going to...

Ah well. The back-up copy is now made - apart from one file which I couldn't get to copy no matter what I did. I'm going to a gig tonight so I won't be able to do anything more until tomorrow but from then on you'll notice things start to disappear. I'll be leaving INAP alone for as long as possible in the hopes that I can just transfer it all in one go. Wish me luck!
