on-rev hacked

It was pointed out to me over the weekend (thanks Mark!) that my on-rev website
had been hit by a bot that did two things: replaced my .htaccess file with an
empty (zero-length) one, and inserted a javascript pointing to "thesalivan.com"
right after the <body> tag in all the .html and .htm files.

Simple enough to fix up, but annoying and consumed time I would rather have
spent on other pressing projects.

So this is just an alert to those who have sites hosted on on-rev, given the
recent (or no-so-recent) security breach there, you might want to check your web
pages and ensure that nothing's out of place. I hadn't noticed any discrepancy,
apparently because one or more of my Firefox blockers was preventing the script
from loading.
