Hey! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing several weeks of hard work due to no backup. Do you have any methods to prevent hackers?

The the next time I read a weblog, Lets hope so it doesnt disappoint me as much as that one. What i’m saying is, I know it was my replacement for read, but When i thought youd have some thing interesting to say. All I hear is often a few whining about something that you could fix in case you werent too busy searching for attention.
