Greetings all once again.
Despite being careful, despite keeping a close eye on things and despite taking every precaution I could conceive of, once more criminal damage was done to my computer systems. Yes, I speak in plural.
This is not unlike the attack I suffered about four months ago, which knocked me offline for a bit over a week. This time, thanks to the generous donation of a friend in need (a friend indeed), I'm back a scant three days after finding my harddrives trashed, my personal documents missing and attempts made at stealing certain items in my possession.
The biggest problem I face at the moment is not one of security or safety, as I highly doubt anyone would move against me openly, but of warning everyone without sounding like a conspiracy nut. Up until four months ago, I didn't think these things actually happened. Now I know better, and I've stopped being casual about personal security.
Keep a weather eye out, please.
But most of all, happy holidays, whichever you choose to celebrate.
