Thanks for clearing this up. I was getting pretty worried.

I saw that ... who hacks in to a webcomic?

I was wondering what happened... It was like a wordpress reset button. All better now?

Hmm.. I bet it was a guy with a creepy handlebar mustache... OMG Buddy13!

Was it the WordPress installation, the web server software, or the server OS itself?

It was WordPress -- a sneaky attack on older versions. We've cleaned out the database, reinstalled some files, and upgraded to the most recent WordPress release. Lesson learned; we'll upgrade whenever a new version is available. Bill's link just above here explains the issue.

Thanks, missy! I'm glad to hear it wasn't an attack on the current version.
