Hacked, Delays, etc.

Well there’s two little things to write about recently so I decided to do that before I end up with a whole pile of stories within a single post.

Firstly, the site got hacked. I don’t know how, and why, but thankfully it’s back online due to some really great support from my hosting company. There isn’t really much to say about it, but if anyone reads this you’ll probably have noticed the big white page with some details for the past few days. Hopefully that won’t happen again!

Secondly, yeah I know I mentioned my iPhone app a while ago, it would have been “released very soon”, and it nearly did. The problem was, I submitted it as a universal app. This means that it is created to run natively on both the iPhone/iPod version of iOS and the iPad. This caused the game to crash on the iPad as I did not actually program a native interface for it. It’s now resubmitted with just the ‘iPhone/iPod Touch’ version, so hopefully finally no more delays!

I’ve removed Disqus since I’ve had a rather abnormal amount of spam accounts trying to register and post, regardless of Captcha settings, e-mail verification and so on, and the point of ‘quickly posting a comment’ was ruined with all these security settings so hopefully the normal WordPress comment system will do a fine job for now.
