Thanks to all of you who have encouraged me with help after the hacking incident that took down Jeff’s Place a week ago, I truly appreciate all the kind words, good advice, and your offers to help with donations! Thank you so much, you are awesome!
Friends of Jeff’s Place
I want to give special recognition to those who have helped, so I put a special Friends of Jeff’s Place “Thank you!” page here to acknowledge you and thank you for your help.
Your encouragement and help means a lot to me. Without your help & encouragement I probably would have just thrown in the towel and called it a day for Jeff’s Place.
I think it is now safe to call an “All clear!”
The good news is that your kind generosity has extended Jeff’s Place operations into December 2017.
With advice from you, and from some computer professionals, I have been able to significantly harden the security & recovery techniques for Jeff’s Place, minimizing danger from future attacks.
It has been quite an unexpected learning experience, but I think things are in good shape now, and for the near future.
The Path Forward
Due to some more good advice I received yesterday, I’ll be implementing some additional measures for securing Jeff’s Place in the January 2018 timeframe, and if all goes to plan I’ll be prototyping a new version of Jeff’s Place until then that I believe will provide an enhanced user experience for those visiting.
I want to thank all of you who inquired about the possibility of advertising here at Jeff’s Place, but after considering it as a means of supporting operations, I’ve decided not to venture into the realm of advertising, as I’d like to keep Jeff’s Place my personal blog about hifi without the complications of going into any sort of business mode that advertising implies.
Any future donations from you will be very much appreciated, and will go towards keeping Jeff’s Place going and growing into the future, and I’ll be working hard at bringing you lots of good hifi content as time goes on.
I’ll be adding the names of any future donors to my list of Friends of Jeff’s Place in acknowledgment of your generosity.
I’ve been a bit overwhelmed trying to keep everything together here at Jeff’s Place this last week, but all of you who have donated should have received a personal note from me saying “Thank you!” for your support, as will those that donate in the future. If you didn’t get a note from it’s because I screwed up, because it was my intent to thank each you personally!
Now back to writing about hifi!
Thank you all, I’ve truly enjoyed writing about hifi for you, and because of your generosity Jeff’s Place shall continue!
Ok, now back to writing about hifi, and as always, thanks for stopping by, and may the tone be with you!
