Someone out there has been working at hacking this web server. I am so #&$^$ing tired of wasting my time rebuilding it, trying to fortify it, being a server den mom is not in my interest.

This web server provides free services such as Feed2JS and the cheerful barkings of this blog among others. Frankly, I am getting tired of trying to deal with people who have nothing better to do but foist their crap onto my free, non profit, educational oriented web sites. Cut it out. Go ahead and take on a worthy opponent, some big old corporate web site or government installation, but stopping f****ing with me.

I am about this close to just shutting it all down. Would anybody mind that? Maybe not. I think I’d rather be laying brick.

I have no use for “people” that keel like they can s*** all over the web.

The post "Cut It Out" was originally scraped from the bottom of the pickel barrel at CogDogBlog ( on December 6, 2005.


  • It probably doesn’t help much, but I’ve used the script a while first straight from the server, later on my own server (now replaced by a PHP-version) and I know I really appreciated the fact that you provided it.

    Just wanted to let you know that….

  • I also appreciate Feed2JS – it solves a tremendous amount of new technology pain and allow me to serve my academic communities in an innovative way. We’re running it on our own server. Thanks!

    I really appreciate all the web sites and services (Feed2JS) that you provide. I have learned more about educational technology from you than any other single person or souce anywhere. I imagine there are a host of other folks that feel similarly. It would be a real blow to the ed. tech. community if you went offline. Thanks for all the great work you do.

  • That was frustration, I will never shut ’em down; all ti took was the first comment of appreciation from Pierre, plus yours.

    I feel better already.

    Sometimes I can’t read everything in my reader, bu. I always read yours! I’m glad you’re feeling better, but I wanted to put in my two cents, too.

    I would miss CogDogBlog terribly Alan … plus your SuprGlu and feeds! :-)

  • Grant

    Fight on. This is one of those sites that’s worth the effort. Anything I can do to assist (short of criminal activity)? Keep on barking it.

  • Steve Ehrmann

    I read cogdogblog and I’m grateful for your hosting “Two Steves and a Blog” on this server. Keep your chin up! Let us know if we can help!
