    Hello! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers?
    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up
    losing several weeks of hard work due to no data backup.

    Do you have any methods to prevent hackers?

    The other day, while I was at work, my sister stole my iphone and tested to see if it can survive a 40 foot drop,
    just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now
    broken and she has 83 views. I know this is completely off topic but
    I had to share it with someone!
