The New Me!

Since my site got hacked a month ago (shame on me!), which proves that it can happen to anyone, there has been little time to rebuild. I decided to start with a clean slate, rather than regurgitating the same old crap again. I have put better protection and security in place this time, although nothing is foolproof.

This is my main site, and will be the launching point for other sites I have, and have in mind. Stay tuned and feel free to make comment…..
