No, not that Adam. The other Adam. Adam Lang, who works on our Join the Fight! project as the “database guy” and who hosts our database and the WordPress server for the social media initiative.
I spent part of yesterday testing and repurposing our Join the Fight WordPress server for the Balloon Juice home away from home, showed it to John, got the nod from him, called Adam to let him know, and was writing the newsletter note to let everyone else know… when Adam volunteered to host a separate WordPress server just for this.
One way or another we were going to have a home away from home today, but this is even better!
Thanks, Adam, for your generosity and your time.
In other good news, late last night we received an update from our site hosts.
365 Data Centers identified the root cause of the May 14 cyber incident. I would have thought the root cause was the hacking, but that’s just me! 🙂
Seriously, though, this is spectacular news. It was becoming clear that the “investigation” phase was going to continue until they figured it out, and now that they have, they are finally saying words like “developing recovery action plans” and “timetables”.
Because of the sheer volume of sites involved, I think it’s still going to be a long slog to get them all back up, and there’s no way to know yet exactly what the process will be and where we’ll be in line.
Developing recovery action plans? Be still my beating heart.
