Everything asploded.

So here’s the short version of what happened:

My blogspot site and my google account associated with it were “compromised”, which basically meant I lost access to them for a short while for some mysterious reason. This, combined with the rash of other blogspot scanlation sites being killed recently has led me to believe that Google cannot be trusted and that I’d be better off finding a new place to set up shop. Fortunately, the Anonymous-Scanner was kind enough to provide me with a small little corner within his HUGE TRACTS OF INTERNET LAND, and set me up a blog. So here I shall remain for the foreseeable future.

Unfortunately, to avoid potentially “compromising” my google account further, I felt the safest course of action was to delete all my old posts there (after archiving everything of course). So, it will of course take me a bit of time getting things transferred over here. Hopefully no more than a couple of days, maybe a week at most. All posts are back up now. If you notice something’s broken or missing or wrong, please let me know in the comments and I’ll see about fixing it.

Now for the long version:

If you happened to check my blogspot site in the last couple of days, you may have noticed a blank page saying something to the effect of, “This blog no longer exists.”

The way I found out about this was when I went to log on to my blog’s email address, I was greeted with a friendly, “Your account has been compromised, please click here to find out what that means.” On the following page the very first sentence was something like, “If your account has been compromised, it probably means you violated the TOS or something.” What then immediately jumped to mind was, “Oh shit, it’s finally happened, someone’s phoned the Google police for my posting of illegal mango prawns and they’re shutting me down like all those other blogs!” And sure enough, upon checking the blog, I discovered it was gone. Not only this, but again, I lost total access to the email; which, while not my main email address for obvious reasons, I do still use for quite a few things.

Fast forward to today, after fucking around with some bullshit cellphone texting thing Google offered as a way to unlock my account, that magically solved everything. Email and blog restored. For what purpose I had to engage in this bullshit, I have no fucking clue, since if my account was actually “compromised” (ie, someone haxed it), all they would have had to do was enter their own cellphone information, so yeah… good job Google. Maybe it was some clever ploy to get me to give them my phone number so they could trace me and send the Googlevan to get me! Oh well…

Anyway, in light of this recent scare, I figured it best to disassociate myself from Google ASAP, to archive the old blog, and then nuke it from orbit (it is, of course, the only way to be sure). I appologize for the inconvenience of the files being temporarily unavailable, but this will all work out to be much safer and more reliable in the long-run. I will get everything reposted here as soon as I can (and as soon as I figure out this new WordPress crap). In the meantime, if you REALLY need one of my scans or something, they are all available on the Erotic Rapture forums.

One last minor note: Thanks for the new digs obviously go to the Anonymous-Scanner. So if you feel like it, go thank him or something… Actually that’s probably a bad idea, just thank him in your hearts!
