Tuesdaily with snarls

I think the worst thing about hacker attacks is how badly they screw up my stats. Oh look! Lots of extra visitors! All of them trying to send bogus information to a forum in a mysql injection attack! Now, that modest increase in readers I saw is completely DROWNED in a slug of fake hits. Okay, maybe the worst thing about hackers is how deeply they rattle me. Nothing lost or compromised, as far as I know, but GODDAMN, I could do without finding this in the morning. (Torn World forums, this time.)

That, and I spent some time deleting spammers out of Fantastic Portfolios. (One even snuck in at the last Sketch Fest, grrr!) It doesn't help that I can't remember some of my new passwords or find where I wrote them down. RARGH.

It honestly leaves me wondering a bit why I bother. Maybe I should go back to drafting or machining. (I sort of miss machining...)

The Internet is being sooooo sloooooow today that I'm getting frustrated and bored in the middle of individual work tasks and email is being unreliable. This is the ideal recipe for a cranky Ellen, especially when she knows she's got about 350 emails to deal with today.

Cranky Ellen is going to go get a cup of cocoa and go outside to kick some snow around and maybe holler at the top of her lungs for a while and scare the dog and take a shower and maybe do something fun like TAXES.

Cranky Ellen needs a hug.



On the plus side, I did finish a commission last night, and shall show that off later. It was very fun.
