What has happened at the Base in 2012? A lot of things!
The coolest thing was the 15 entries in the 76 Patrons Writing Contest. 🙂
I hope we can beat that in 2013! I’ll add a few bucks to make the first prize even better. Sponsors are Welcome!
The most annoying thing this year was being hacked. 🙁
Well the base wasn’t really hacked. It was vandalized by a script-kiddie. Nothing was lost, and I didn’t lose control over anything. A script found a vulnerability and vandalized what it could. I could restore everything. This made me upgrade to the latest version of WordPress (the software that is running the blog). I also added two plugins that I thought looked cool. A dice roller and a forum.
One of these plugins had a vulnerability. The Base was vandalized again. 😡
Now I am a lot more restrictive about the plugins I add.
When upgrading the software I also got a better tool for site stats. All I knew before was that I had about 300.000 accesses each month. Now I know that I have about 4000 proper visitors each month

My post old post about The Average Traveller Universe seem to attract lots of surfers from eastern Europe. 🙄
I am looking forward to 2013. On my to-do list there are a few reviews that needs to be written. I will also write something about spherical ships. When I have time I will also do a few updates of some old stuff. I will continue posting news about the Zhodani Base, Traveller and astronomy at Facebook.
