    Just a quick message to all my fellow hatters.

    Yesterday I fell right on my arse. Off my computer chair right on my arse.

    Why? Someone had hacked my mysql database and deleted all my product listings. Wouldn't be so bad if I didn't have over 400 products, with individually carefully crafted decriptions, photos and tags. Bugger.

    So just a reminder - if you have cpanel use the BACKUP feature regularly and don't spend a week retyping and rebuilding pages.

    Then if any low down dirty hacker decides to messw ith your site all you do is reupload your shit and away you go again - after changing all your passwords!
