September 1st 2019 – On august 26th I received notification that all my current websites had been compromised by hackers. I spent the last 5 days baking up, scanning, editing, learning – how to deal with this problem. And while I don’t think I’m entirely out of the woods, I think the worst might be over. At the moment the following sites – mrgoneband.com, xensemble.org, 100yearsofspring.org and Thunderheadtrio.com – remain offline while I finish cleanup. Meanwhile, nailmusic.com is up and running.
