A Quick Word from Blog Bloke

Yes, I promised I had returned some time ago but unfortunately Murphy’s Law ruled once again. What happened? Well, the blog was still unstable. We were stumped, and this post is another testing of the waters to see if I remain standing.

The blog was crashing so often my database became corrupted. Fortunately I had a backup which we used after a fresh install of Wordpress. We thought we had it licked but the blog was still unstable.

What the…

After checking the logs we noted this blog is still under constant brute force attacks despite having been down. They are trying to hack into the blog. Combine this with an avalanche of overwhelming traffic from multiple sources, and the blog web server kept crashing.

It was unbelievable. This blog has been sustaining constant, relentless attacks for several years now. Good grief.

So we had to put up a firewall around the blog and tweaked the web server here and there to make the blog stable (knock on wood). I’m keeping my fingers crossed.

Now you know why the relaunch of Blog Bloke had fizzled.

So today’s post is made with a little trepidation to see what happens. Thank you for sticking with me and hopefully I will see you on the other side.

Hang in there and bye for now.
