Like a lot of cartoonists publishing on the web, I use WordPress to manage my archive. This past week, Brad Guigar at Webcomics.com forwarded an article detailing how to secure a WordPress site against unwanted hacking. I implemented his suggestions, and lo and behold, no sooner than I did that, I got a ton of messages from my own website, automatically notifying me that over 350 attempts to log into my site had been thwarted. Webcomics.com is a pay site, and with this advice alone, it paid for itself.
Oh, and someone bought a copy of my book yesterday! Thanks, whoever you were!! Made my day!
