A gmail security vulnerability (now fixed) allowed a domain extortionist to hijack logo designer David Airey’s domain. Fortunately he had a a .co.uk backup and is online. But he’s still fighting to get back his .com.

UPDATE: The flurry of news and support for David resulted in GoDaddy (his domain registrar) helping him nail things back down.

is a post-hardcore rock'n'roller, graphic designer, amateur chef, typography nerd, coffee connoisseur, radio guy, motorcyclist, skateboard commuter, and a reluctant adult. He lives in Portland's Old Town area with the lovely Dr. Adrienne and Rocco the Dog.
