Pop-Up Goes the Weasel
As most of you have probably already noticed, whenever you visit DXM right now you get a pop-up that asks for a password. Obviously, you don't need to actually have a password to view this site and clicking off the box just makes it go away without a hitch.
As for what this is, well, chances are I was hacked. I'm having an IT guy take a look at it and should soon have the situation resolved. Until then, thanks everybody for just rolling with the minor annoyance.
We now return you to your regularly scheduled nonsense.
Update: The problem's been fixed. Turns out, since the original piece on Hurricane Andrew was posted years ago one of the pictures in it was hotlinked -- and that hotlink set up a prompt on this page. Thanks to Alert Reader Ethan Pearson-Pomerantz for pointing me in the right direction.
