Well it finally happened. Animal Architecture was viciously hacked a few weeks back and this weekend, as we were attempting to remove the hack, we lost quite a lot of data; so you might experience some broken links. Fortunately, the good folks at Google had a back up cache of almost every post we lost and within under an hour we were back online. There are still a few posts missing — some of most recent and a few of the oldest. We’ll do our best to recreate the content but for now we’d like to focus on new info. Thanks for your patience and sorry for the inconvenience. If you discover broken links please bring them to our attention and we’ll  be faster and more secure shortly.

Ned and Jon.
