Among the casualties of the hack was the loss of all the photos of his young daughter's life as well as photos of now deceased relatives.
The implications for family historians are obvious. Below you will find a link to the original story of the Honan hack as well as some articles about how to prevent the same thing from happening to you.

Remember when you park your car, to take your electronic devices out with you. Otherwise when you return to your parked
oven car and try to use the aforementioned device you will get a scary message along the lines of (to paraphrase) “you idiot…this device is now too hot to use and you may have just killed it”. Then you will be forced to drive the next ten miles with one hand on the wheel and one hand holding your device on the air conditioning vent all the while praying that the tech gods will forgive your sins. Not that I personally would have ever done this. In Oklahoma. In August. In a record setting heat wave.
And by the way, it’s going to be 113 here today. Death Valley called. They want their summer back.
