For the past week I’ve been unable to post to this blog. I was not hacked. Further investigation revealed that my database had exploded to a ginormous size. This caused my hosting company to automatically block any further posting. The trouble maker was a plugin that was tracking my web stats. No need to identify it, just be aware that those things can clog your MySQL database in the WordPress blogs. I simply uninstalled the plugin and dropped it’s huge table. Back to normal again.
