Uh ohhhhh hai! Emerson College displays bizarre error message


Uh ohhhhh hai! Appears there’s more evidence it’s that kind of night. The site’s back up, but Anthony De Rosa got a screenshot. EDIT: Now they’re claiming they didn’t get hacked, but had a server hiccup.

Still, two months? That’s a long time to wait to inform people about something of this nature.
