Xiaxue hacked

One of the more well-known Singaporean bloggers, Xiaxue, just had her Blogger account hacked, and over 3000 blog posts deleted. That's, to put it mildly, a shitty thing to do. It's probably even criminal. I know she's controversial and that some people don't like her tone of voice - but to hack into an account and actually delete years of effort and leave a horrible message below? That's disgusting.

Fortunately, Blogger backs up everything on Blogspot (I think they backup everything, full stop, since when you publish it goes through their servers), so it seems she'll get everything back. But this is a good moment to remind people to back up their blogs.

Yah, in an emotional fit once, I deleted my blog. After a few emails with the tech support guy from blogger, I got everything back.

They even entertain PMS. Heh. :)

I've worried that a few people might like to get my site down, so it's reassuring to know that backups are made.

That's rough. She's got way too many haters. Poor girl!
