Goddamn kids and their music scripting!

Man, script kiddies need to die. Some fuckers have been carrying out DoS attacks on Dreamhost today, around the same time I was updating my software. Because of this, my site was fucked for a bit. I think the WordPress upgrade went ok, after I did some voodoo with my FTP client, but the Gallery software seems to be in some sort of magic no-no place. It still works (I think), it just won’t upgrade. I think. Fucken script kiddies need to go fornicate themselves with an iron pole.

EDIT #1: OK, it seems like Gallery is mildly broken. Upgrading it causes the site to shit itself. Restoring the backup of causes Gallery itself to work, as I can go to http://www.mytwistedmind.net/gallery/main.php and see my pictures, but the Random Image thing is returning an error. What fun I find for myself on Saturday nights. To think, I could be out engaged in such boring activities like rampant drinking, drug use, and anonymous sex. I sure dodged a bullet there!

EDIT #2: Never mind, then. On a hunch, I checked out Gallery’s configuration, and it seems it’s got a plugin for random images which decided to disable itself. I’ve re-enabled it and now it seems to work. I still can’t upgrade, but I really don’t care about that. Note to self: Don’t upgrade website software just because you’re bored, you fucking ass.
