i'm ready for my close up mr demille
Well I thought I was getting back on the road.  I discovered that the guestbook on my Beastie Boys website had been hacked and it took me a couple of hours to learn how it was done, fix the vulnerability, and clean-up the mischief done.

actually a lot of hackers consider themselves mischievous little helpers who improve the world by finding vulnerabilities in software, forcing programmers to be better with their syntax, design, and implementation.... to their credit, my hackers didn't do anything harmful, just mischeivous... and, in the two months since the vulnerability was discovered in the guestbook software, its creators have released a new version as well as code patch for the older one....

it was still a pain in the ass, though
