The Backyard BBQ'er web site was hacked last week.

Sadly, I don't have the drive or time to devote to doing all the work necessary to rebuild the site. So for now it will remain down. There is a notice posted at the web address.

Maybe after I get over being so pi$$$ed off and can find a little time here and there, I may start a new smaller site. I'm just not sure right now.

Rant off. Thanks for letting me vent.

Da mn it Jim, sorry to hear that. That was an awesome collection and representation of your work and recipes. I know why it is said they do that - I just don't get it.

Please work on it a little at a time when you can. When you do - look into a back up source.

Yes, I did have a back-up copy, but I would have to re-do and change all the links to slideshows, pics, videos, and websites.

Let's put it this way, anything you clicked on like a link or pic or slideshow, it got re-directed to XXX p@^n sites.

I am sorry for the loss of your site.

Send the hacker to me, pretty sure he won't hack another site.

Thanks Guys. The site is up and running, but only about 60% finished. I still have a lot of stuff to upload yet.
