Until Valve fixes the "Click here" link for the Awesomenauts free weekend on Steam, you can use the following link to install the game:
Let’s see if it still works…
As you likely already noticed, Google has confirmed Brainstorm Warning is no longer infected by malware and safe to browse again. Huzzah!
This is merely a test post.
I’ve nuked everything the Brainstorm Warning web site, installed a fresh copy of WordPress, and imported all posts. User accounts did not carry over, but please hold off on registering again until I can confirm that the root cause of the malware infections has been resolved.
I’ll post updates as they become available.
I’ve discovered that Google has blacklisted Brainstorm Warning as infected by malware. I have reviewed the site code, found no evidence of malware, and requested a review from Google using their Webmaster Tools.
I’m guessing that my previous battles with SQL injection attacks (involving base64_decode and several hours of cleanup) landed me on the blacklist.
I apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. I will post again after I receive word back from Google that Brainstorm Warning has been cleared.
My wife and I recently switched from a basic phone plan with AT&T to Straight Talk’s unlimited talk, text, and “web browsing” plan. Almost from day one, we’ve repeatedly encountered an “access forbidden” error message when trying to pull up a web page in Chrome or the default Android web browser. Other apps that require Internet access also fail to connect (e.g. Amazon AppStore, Google Play Store, Facebook, etc.). The issue is not constant, but I encounter it approximately half to two-thirds of the times I move out of wi-fi range and into an area with HSPA+.
And it seems I’m not the only one with this problem. The following threads were posted to the Straight Talk Wireless Forums starting Sept. 22 and on:
There are similar threads on other sections of the ST Wireless Forums and all posts are met with the same response: A user claiming to represent ST asking the customer to contact them via private message.
Customers on other forums have reported the same issue:
It’s apparent this is a widespread issue and I’ve yet to find one fix that works consistently (or at all). Straight Talk has not provided a public explanation or solution, suggesting they either are unwilling or, more likely, unable to resolve the problem.
It’s possible that this issue is not specific to Straight Talk, but also affects other AT&T MVNOs. It’s not unreasonable to suspect that AT&T is purposely crippling their MVNO users’ data to push them back toward a post-paid plan with a subsidized phone, higher cost for the consumer, and greater profit margin for AT&T.
I’m strongly recommending that all Straight Talk customers that encounter this issue file a complaint against ST with the Florida Office of the Attorney General. Until customers put pressure on Straight Talk to resolve this issue, they likely won’t put any pressure on AT&T and we likely won’t see a solution.
I received the following e-mail today:

I’ve spent the last two and a half hours cleaning up the site, removing all themes, installing a fresh copy of the default theme, and cleaning the database of any potentially malicious code.
If you’d like to see a different theme for Brainstorm Warning, please post a comment with a link to download the theme.
I checked A Dance With Dragons out from my local library today and found myself struggling to remember plot elements from a book I read 7 years ago. (ADWD picks up where A Storm of Swords leaves off, but with a different cast of characters than A Feast for Crows.) Fortunately, I found this excellent 4-part recap of the first four books of the series:
- The Song of Ice and Fire So Far: Part 1 – Ancient History
- The Song of Ice and Fire So Far: Part 2 – The Dragon Kings
- A Song of Ice and Fire So Far Part 3: Thrones and Kings
- A Song of Ice and Fire So Far Part 4: Swords and Crows
Now I feel like I’m prepared to get back to reading the 1,000+ page behemoth that is A Dance With Dragons.
