Yesterday I got a notice from my web host that my account was being deactivated due to suspicious activity.  Apparently someone had hacked into my WordPress account and was doing all sorts of nefarious, spamilicious things with my site.

So I uninstalled WordPress as per the instructions here.  I thought as long as I backed everything up to my hard drive, all will be well.  But I forgot to back up the database.

Why, oh, why did I delete my SQL database for my blog?  I thought I had backed up my entire blog before I wiped it (someone had hacked in here), but apparently I didn’t.  Argh.  Really, double argh.

Anyway, I don’t have time right now to fix up my blog with all its extra stuff, so stay tuned and you’ll see something soon enough.
