BR Update

It's been a week or so since BlogRolling was hacked causing them to have to shut down their service. Since then the team at BR has been working feverishly to get things back in order. According to yesterdays update, they still have not completed that and say it could take a couple of weeks.

Here's an excerpt from the update:

Behind the scenes, we’ve got a couple of parallel projects underway.

a) bringing back affected services safely and responsibly. We want to ensure that your data is safe, so we’re doing an extensive review of the affected services, making slight adjustments here and there, and restoring individual services. This won’t be a quick process, so don’t expect to see full functionality restored in the next few days. It may be up to a few weeks before basic services are fully restored. I realize how much this sucks, but we want to make sure that we don’t affect the overall security of the system and the basic dependability of core roll serving. Like I said earlier, we’re committed to keeping the lights on, but they will be dimmed for a little while.

The "B" of that update is that they are also working on an updated version of the software... which is interesting and exciting enough, but I just would like the old service back for now. It's missed... and I'm sure it is by many people.

I'll keep you updated as I find out new information. Stay tuned.
