What the... AAAAARGH!
....okay, self-LART applied - pointy-end first, no lube.
About a year and a half ago, I needed somewhere non-ork to
stick some different non-ork information. At that time they
had a little subtle pop-up advertising that was easily
blocked and some harmless banners, but they weren't pulling
any of the filthy tricks they seem to be now. After that info
became irrelevant, I stuck those photos there because there
wasn't really anywhere at ork I could stick them. At that time,
a cursory examination suggested that the hosting provider was
still reasonably well behaved. I'll look for somewhere else to
Fsck fsck fsckity-fsck!
Looks like I have a whole mess of domains to stick into
the blocklist on the proxy farm now, too. Great...
Well, the damage has been done. I've removed the links to the
large pictures, and stuck a big "Go and scan your machine NOW!"
warning on the page - that ought to minimise the number of
pop-ups and hijacking attempts. I've also made it 404-compliant
and renamed it fscktitude.html - so it takes a deliberate
effort to get there.
All this pain out of a few happy-snaps someone else wanted
to see six months ago. Shit.
