Hi readers,

Recently this site was hacked by some loser from Algeria who calls himself Moh Ooasiic 'Proud to be a Musliman'.
He spends his days playing with his weener and 'hacking' random Drupal websites.
Obviously, this script-kiddie has nothing better do with his life but be annoying and force his religious ideas upon others.
On Wednesday April the 15th at 20:40 he left a trail of information behind in the server logs when he 'attacked' this website.
So, clearly he's no genius.

He calls himself Moh Ooasiic. His IP address is and he lives in Oran, Algeria (35°41'28"N -0°38'30"W).
He uses a Windows PC with a Chrome web browser and is connected to the Algeria Telecom network.
On Youtube he even has a video that shows how he uses a script (rather than knowledge) to attack Drupal websites.

Please send me an email when something like this happens again.
I can then restore the website as soon as possible so normal civilized people all over the world can enjoy it's free content.


Viewers input

Recently, some viewers of this website send me comments and suggestions on Open Source Software.
I would like to thank all these people for giving us all their input on Open Source software regarding photography on Linux.
It really helps to share your knowledge and experiences on what software you use for your photography needs.

As a direct response I would like to state that the programs 'Rapid Photo Downloader', 'Phatch' and 'Darktable' were added to the software-list.

Another viewer also suggested using Darktable, which is a RAW developer. I remember using it for a while myself, but I was not satisfied with the user interface and, more importantly, the end-result. But don't believe my word for it. Install it, try it and maybe you will like it. User experiences differ from person to person. It takes a while to sort through all the Open Source tools before you will find what you are looking for. But in the end it is all worth it.

Also, a review on the GIMP is on my list for ages. Personally, I think the GIMP is still by far the best tool you can use.

Thanks again for all your input!
