At around midnight (GMT) last night, Basenotes was hacked. If you visited the site early enough before we took the site offline would have seen a black page with the following message, and video:
Hacked by Team Animus

From Sweden with <3
As soon as we heard about the hack, we (in laymans terms) switched the site off and displayed a message saying that the site was down and we would post further updates on our Twitter page. I fell asleep

I can't sleep, but I'm to tired to do anything constructive, so I'm going to post a list of all the things I really couldn't do without -- the software and websites I need to make basenotes with.
Firstly, my trusty iMac. (this one here - though mine isn't always up to these crazy tricks), without which I'd be pretty stuffed. I also like my eeepc, which is pretty useful for catching up with email (gmail) and my rss feeds (Google reader) when I'm doing my full time dad duties.
Basenotes is an online guide to perfume and fragrance, featuring news, a database of fragrances, perfume glossary, fragrance forums, user reviews and more.
