  1. In the grand pattern of things you receive a B+ just for effort and hard work. Where you actually misplaced me personally ended up being in all the specifics. You know, it is said, the devil is in the details… And it could not be more true at this point. Having said that, permit me tell you exactly what did give good results. Your text is highly convincing which is most likely why I am making an effort to comment. I do not make it a regular habit of doing that. 2nd, even though I can see the leaps in reason you make, I am not really sure of just how you seem to connect the points that help to make your conclusion. For now I will subscribe to your issue but trust in the future you connect the dots much better.

    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 back up.
    Do you have any solutions to prevent hackers?
