Back from the Hack…

A couple of days ago I was alerted to the fact that MRImetaldetector.com had been hacked. Someone defaced this site and made the content of this blog inaccessible. Thanks to the technical assistance of my webhost (www.DowntownHost.com), we were able to retrieve and restore much of the previous content, by rebuilding the site and doing a little database trickery. As of right now, the text of the site is up and functional… but the images and media files are not. At least not yet.

I hope to have all of the prior content back and fully accessible in the next several days, if the technical spirits will cooperate.

The one thing that is irretrievably lost are comments that were awaiting moderation. My apologies to anyone who had responded to a piece, or posed questions that weren’t answered.

Thank you, one and all, for being a part of this community.

Blog Readers, You’re In Good Company (And Lots Of It)!

The internet proves Christopher Columbus was wrong.

At least in terms of the ‘degrees of separation’ idea the world is pretty much flat, not round as Columbus found it 500+ years ago. This contemporary view of ‘flatness’ is supported by the numbers of countries in the visitor logs for the MRImetalDetector.com blog each month.

Subscribing To The MRI Metal Detector Blog

Alright folks, time for just a moment of ‘under the hood’ talk about this blog and how to get the content as easily as possible. Absolutely, you can point your browser here and see what’s new, but you can also have the entries catalogued for you, available as individual stories. This ‘snackable’ format is available via RSS (Real Simple Syndication), another internet 3-letter acronym which essentially means you’ve subscribed to the MRI Metal Detector Blog in the electronic equivalent of having the Sunday paper delivered to your doorstep.

Now, to read the MRI Metal Detector Blog, you’re coming to the newsstand, but if you want ‘home delivery’ all you need to do is click to have this content available on demand and indexed in a pull down menu in your browser. Myself, I have BBC news and the MRI Metal Detector Blog set up as RSS feeds in my browser, Firefox. But you don’t have to have Firefox, there are RSS features either already built-in or quick plug-in augmentations for every other browser. Or, you can have RSS info piped to your Google home page or other personalized websites.

To get started using RSS, all you need to do is scroll all the way down to the very bottom of this page. In the footer of the page you’ll see some stuff about Podpress (the software that makes bringing you this blog so darn easy) and also a couple of links for RSS subscriptions. I encourage you to click on the ‘RSS entries’ text link and set yourself up for a regular supply of direct-delivered MRI Metal Detector Blog content.

While I’m not a computer guru, I am happy to help out as best I can with anyone having difficulty getting up and running with a RSS feed.

If you have any questions about this blog, either content or the technical voodoo that makes it work, please don’t be shy about contacting me. You can either post a comment to one of these entriesĀ  (which I get and read each and every one) or you can send me an email as my address is at the foot of each blog entry I make.

Thank you for joining the MRI Metal Detector Blog and for your efforts to improve safety of MRI exams for patients, staff, and the MRI provider.
