Posted by Kate Phizackerley on Tuesday, January 22, 2013

There seem to be suggestions that Andrea and I know the affiliation of
those who hacked us. We don't and by policy I haven't speculated. Part
of the reason for my reticence is that some, although not all, of the
hackers have been polite to us. In particular, at no point did the hackers claim association.with any religion.

We have also made no public assessment of our Web host for
Egyptological. Were the site to reappear it would be with a different
host, but we needed to swap hosts anyway on grounds of capacity/economy.

We are grateful for the offers of assistance, thank you. I will share
those emailed to me with Andrea next week. I am however reluctant to
share any further details of what has happened with anybody to avoid
the risk of a third party politicising the issue. By policy
Egyptological was apolitical and respectful of all religions. If there is to be any future, we will retain those principles. And perhaps the times when principles matter most are in the face of adversity.

Thanks for all the best wishes. If it is possible for News From the
Valley of the Kings to return it will, but if nothing else the time
taken up by the hack has made posting here impractical over the next
couple of months and my study time is likely to be devoted to Web
security rather than Egyptology over the next several weeks. If there
is a major discovery I would probably break my silence but otherwise I
would expect this blog to be quiet in terms of news until the summer at
least while I catch the rest of my life back up.

Best wishes
Kate

Your troubles have been picked up by IT site The Register Hackers on anti-Egypt spree bury Egyptology journal in the sand

Ricketson said...

Do you know if any particular posts or topics inspired the attacks? If so, we should make a point of publicizing those posts as a way of neutralizing the efforts of the attackers. It's the Streisand Effect.

Raimo Kangasniemi said...

Ricketson, apparently Egyptological was attacked because it's about Egypt, if only about ancient Egypt. No specific article was the reason, but the subject.

Hello, I'm Polish and I keep track of your blog. I'm concerned to hear that. Thanks for your work. I would like to highlight that the coming period may be crucial for Egyptology as the Polish-Egyptian Cliff Mission at Deir el-Bahari is going to Egypt today to begin the decisive excavation season. If all goes according to plan, they will discover tomb of pharaoh Amenhotep I, later reused by king-priest Herihor and probably also by his son - king Neferkare Amenemnisu. The tomb is intact after the last burial.

Sorry to hear you have ended the blog ,it feels like the end of an era and i will miss it very much.
It has not come as much of a shock as a couple of years ago as you have not been posting as much since the advent of egyptological.
However it is a shock nonetheless. My hope is that if something really significant is found you will be tempted to recommence blogging.

Lallie said...

Oh such a pity...
I was reading your blog from time to time and it was always such a pleasure ! Many thanks for all the light you have put on Egyptology for me.
Good luck !

I secretly hope that you will change you mind ;-)

Just in time for the winter break, rolex replica we get a really solid story arc episode. This final episode of 2009 requires a bit of discussion that will definitely fall into spoiler territory, so read further at your own risk. There been all of this mystery about the gucci replica location of the Colt and last week in one throwaway line, Sam and Dean suddenly knew exactly where to go to find the gun. Mark Sheppard is one of those character actors, you the ones that play the same character in nearly everything they do, that popping up in all sorts of genre shows. Sheppard was at his best in Battlestar louis vuitton replica Galacitcia, but playing a car salesman of a demon is a comfortable role for him too. The opening scene where Cass is following him and the both of them disappear behind columns doing that demon/angel thing is good stuff chanel replica. The brothers get the gun with little trouble because it appears that some of the demons like living the way they do and they don trust that Satan will not just toss them around like cannon fodder.

That is why the Apple Inc logo is such an asset. Easyjet can brand anything simply by using the orange and remembering the brand image it evokes. So the use of an antique font face would immediately be wrong, but in all honesty whether Verdana or Trebuchet or any other modern font was used would probably be irrelevant, so long as any publication or document was consistent within itself, although using a consistent font for the company name is commonplace. In fact the Easy Group does have preferred fonts.

Vimax is clinically proven to work, and for this reason Vimax pills have enjoyed the support of the medical community for several years. Vimax was one of the first enhancement products to be formulated by doctors with expert knowledge in erectile function.
Most of the ED drugs like Viagra and Cialis use derivatives of the same ingredients found in Vimax in their formula. However, because
Vimax Asli is completely natural and uses these ingredients in their pure and natural form
you get a stronger, safer formula - with better results- and no prescription required.
