OMG! You're a HACKER! Jail-time if anybody finds out. You'd better
delete your post before "they" find it.
Seriously though, all you've done is discover an open system, you didn't
break anything. I'm sure the administrator would like to be warned of
this (that is if he/she is anywhere to be seen).
-- Ben M. ---------------- What are Software Patents for? To protect the small enterprise from bigger companies. What do Software Patents do? In its current form, they protect only companies with big legal departments as they: a.) Patent everything no matter how general b.) Sue everybody. Even if the patent can be argued invalid, small companies can ill-afford the typical $500k cost of a law-suit (not to mention years of harassment). Don't let them take away your right to program whatever you like. Make a stand on Software Patents before its too late. Read about the ongoing battle at http://swpat.ffii.org/ ----------------
