Right – hopefully that’s everything back up and running again! The hack didn’t affect my customised theme (and I’ve restored a clean version from my source-control anyway). I suspect there will be little dark corners that don’t quite work, but the site is looking much like I would expect it to.

My WordPress site apparently got hacked while I was away on holiday (which is why the site went down). I’ve done a fresh installation, but am not going to copy the theme customisations across just yet until I have a chance to make sure nothing’s been compromised!

For a while I have run a second website at, but since starting on the whole ordination journey I have run out of time and energy to keep it up. However, there’s some good stuff on there (at least I think it is!), so I’m going to move all the posts across from there […]

Right, have tidied up my ‘Links’ section over there to the left. Now they are all fine and dandy and up to date. I’ve introduced a new “Photography” bit, ‘cos that’s what I’m into most at the mo, and culled some of the old “friends” links, and added some new ones. If I know you […]

Twitter has now turned off Basic Authentication, so apps have to use OAuth. In case you missed it, I have a page which says how to a PHP twibot using OAuth, and I’m grateful to Shadowfax for highlighting some of changes he had to make to get it work in CentOS. Enjoy!

I’ve finally got to grips with Twitter and OAuth, and made myself an updated twibot. It’s actually not that hard – read all about it at weatherbot.php
