Malware is Gone and All is Well

I’ve had a confusing couple of weeks. First, a nice gentleman who was considering my job search book (in beta) told me he was seeing potential virus notifications on Hiring Technical People. Well, that seemed strange. But, then another colleague who’d participated in my Peer Project Portfolio Coaching also saw the notifications. With two PC-running people seeing them, I knew I had a problem. I use a Mac, and don’t see these things, so I asked my web master for help. He suggested we ask my ISP. A day or so later, Google decided I was a malware site. Oh boy, that was a huge problem. My ISP finally located the problem several days later, and discovered they had a backup from several weeks ago that did not have the problem. My backups only run for a couple of weeks at a time, not close to a month. Guess I will have to revisit that strategy. Yesterday after my site and blogs were restored, and Google reviewed my site, the malware notifications were gone. Happy days! You can safely surf to my site and my blogs again.

Looking for Advice on Article Tagging

These are the articles from several years ago I didn’t get around to posting because it was too much of a pain to do in Dreamweaver. Yes, I’ve transitioned to WordPress site. I’m planning to unveil it next week. I have a question for you, my loyal readers. Aside from typical tags, such as “project management,” I can also tag my articles with the outlet in which they were published. Is that helpful to you? Please comment and advise me. Thank...

Happy New Year

Everyone, I thank you for reading and commenting. I hope you have a healthy and happy 2009.

I'm # 30 on Jurgen's List

I don’t normally pay much attention to these kinds of things, but what the heck, this will give Jurgen a link back. Jurgen has collated the Top 100 Blogs for Development Managers (Q3 2008). I have no idea if he will continue to do this quarter after quarter (!). I’m glad that other people find this blog valuable. Thank you, dear readers, for reading and commenting. The good thing about this list is that now I have more blogs to consider reading. That’s also the bad...
