Long time readers may know that I took over the maintenance of my dear friend Ken Kifer’s website after he was killed by a drunk driver in 2003. Unfortunately if you go to his site now, it isn’t his site. It’s a Japanese WordPress site.
I contacted Joe Gardner, who actually takes care of the hosting, and who is much wiser in the ways of IT than I am.
No, the domain did not expire. It’s paid through the end of 2014.
No, we did not take the site down.
Apparently someone in Tokyo hacked into the DNS service and stole the domain. Joe and some other IT guys are working on getting it back.
I’ll post another update when I know more.
