Lying in a featherbed
will bring you no fame, nor staying beneath the quilt,
and he who uses up his life without achieving fame
leaves no more vestige of himself on Earth
than smoke in the air or foam upon the water.
omnibus ex nihilo ducendis; sufficit unum
Tumblr decided that my blog’s custom theme was “suspicious”, and stripped it. It’s hard to know what encouraged that decision, and what parser process behind the scenes allows “suspicious” themes.
It seems detached from the Heartbleed fracas, but who knows what’s going on. Tumblr is notoriously tight-lipped about the status of its platform. Once again I find myself questioning my continued use of Tumblr to host my blog.
Here’s a link my blog’s now-revoked custom theme: https://gist.github.com/mwunsch/c9325aaa9ea1f841e7e3
Not sure what’s out of the ordinary there, but feel free to use it as you see fit.
It’s time for a change, and that change will either be migrating away from Tumblr or just building out a new theme…
…or something larger in scope. Like revisiting Thimble…
Update: Tumblr has a Last Account Activity area in your account settings and yeah, it looks like someone managed to get in:
My guess is that Heartbleed leaked my session cookie and someone modified my theme with bad mojo.
