I check the website this morning only to find the name of the site had been changed to "hacked bycvs#cvs irc.webchat.org 6667" Confused I changed the name back but the forum doensn't quite look the same and there's an error message when logging in. If you attempt to log in and get the page can not be displayed message simply go back to the main page where you log in and you should be logged in.

This comes at a crappy time for me. My home computer is in the shop getting fixed and even if I had it, I don't have time to dig into it to figure out what's broken. Life's a bit busy right now.

silly "script kiddies" who think it's cool to hack people's sites. they basically take it over as a temporary trophy to show off to their friends. most of the time i dont think they do real damage, but it happens... depends on if the one that took over was malicious about it or not.

ah... if they only knew that most geeks actually just laugh at them

Hacked again this morning Sad Just spent the last 1 1/2 hours in the Ferris library fixing it again. It still doesn't look right to me. Can't wait to get my home 'puter back.

I don't know if asking you to put the contest winners up would be trouble for you or not? Take your time.. Very Happy

Obviously this soul could use a dose of the island. Maybe this could curb their frustration and really understand what this site is all about.
