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…
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.
I received the following e-mail today:
The daily antivirus scan of your blog suggests alarm.

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.
Watching the anime series Angel Beats recently led my thoughts to other non-Christian artists producing art that hints at truths that Scripture illuminates more clearly. Specifically, it reminded me of John Mayer’s song, Something’s Missing, perhaps the most blatant recent example of non-Christians sensing a mystery that calls to all people.
The concept of non-Christians recognizing the existence of a higher power or force but misunderstanding or even denying that spiritual “nudge” is nothing new. Paul writes about the very same in his letter to the Romans:
UPDATE: I have installed the SI CAPTCHA Anti-Spam WordPress plugin, which I hope will prevent spambots from registering accounts. The plugin should render the request below irrelevant, so there is no longer any need to contact me before or after creating an account.
I delete several spam accounts from the Brainstorm Warning database every week. If you’re a real human being registering an account, please contact me (whether by e-mail, instant message, Facebook message, or the Contact page) before or shortly after creating an account and let me know so I don’t delete it.
My apologies for the hassle.
