After over ten years online, the Emma Jo website (this one) was hacked, shredded, destroyed, white-screen-of-deathed. The web hosting company did nothing to protect it, and when I called for help, blamed me for it and offered absolutely no solutions.

Hence we are temporarily offline. We’ve scraped the internet way-back machine, combed through the computer files for backup copies of posts, photos, and graphics. There are over 6,000 files to examine, reassemble, and re-post. So we’ll be offline for a while.

Oh, well. At least it keeps us off the streets.
