Blog move in progress

Yes, another move. After moving from clodjee.blogspot.ca, we are now transitioning from clodjee.com (a WordPress blog hosted on internic.ca) to clodjee-blog.com (or clodjeeblog.wordpress.com, hosted on wordpress.com). The move was prompted by security problem that compromised the blog and wordpress.com seems to offer better options and security.

Although it is not that simple: since I cannot keep the same theme, the transfer will require lots of adjustments that make it feel like starting an entirely new blog. So, for now, I will keep both clodjee.com and clodjee-blog.com running concurrently (which will require double posting for a while), but when I’ll be satisfied with the new blog I’ll close the old one and forward the domain there.

Please, bear with us in the meantime !

Blog of my blood

Last week, I discovered that my blog (which I cherish greatly because it has been essential to sustain my soul and my sanity) had been hacked and that malicious code was injected in everyone of my 1500+ posts. It was causing a redirect that crippled the blog, preventing anyone to access it. According to my web host, it was caused by vulnerabilities in the previous version WordPress and, since it was not their fault, they didn’t help much beside offering a few suggestions.

I have removed the malicious script in the last hundred or so posts in order to make the blog functional enough to continue working on it. So, if you click on a link that redirect you to a weird place (or a blank page) you’ll know why.

I’ll try to find an automated way to removed the remaining malicious code or I’ll find some time to do it manually. For now, I’ve installed Wordfence to improve security but, obviously, the current hosting doesn’t have much security (and doesn’t care). Therefore I will eventually move the hosting to a better place (the best candidate seems to be wordpress.com, which offers more features and a better price).

To be continued…

Une nouvelle qui résonne

Tous les gens qui ont eut à se plaindre à un moment ou l’autre de l’entreprise Bell Canada (et j’imagine qu’il y en a beaucoup) seront heureux d’apprendre que, selon l’émission La Facture de Radio-Canada, la meilleure place pour se plaindre de Bell est la Commission des plaintes relatives aux services de télécom-télévision (CRTC, Wikipedia). Le CPRST règlerait 90% des plaintes qu’ils reçoivent relatives à Bell et ce gratuitement et dans un délai de moins de trente jours! Bell génère d’ailleurs 32% du total des plaintes de consommateurs canadiens! Une information à retenir pour quand il y aura quelque chose qui cloche dans vos services de télécommunications !
