Hi ranchers,
Looks like somebody has hacked into the javaranch site.
I found a "java sucks" message on top of the pages in the website.
Whats going on here?

I very much doubt that.
It's not very funny seeing that message.
But I would surely like to know how it was done.

Welcome to JavaRanch :)

No answers to that sort of question are available on 1st April. Mwaahaahaahaa!
And I don't know why the "quote" isn't working properly.

Such an urgent matter has to be posted here.

Well, I noticed that this message "java sucks" is stored under FOLDER "aprilfools"!!!

Do you think Javaranch site is hackable to the extend that someone can create such a folder and put an image file that contains this message???!!!.....I dont think so

Sorry to have shocked you. But this sort of thing does happen every year on 1st April; it has vanished again until next year . . .

We also have special seasonal costumes for the Moose on a few occasions.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
