    Sir! We regret to inform you. Hax0red by Canuckers.

    Your Moment of Zen, Mr Stewart

    We are writing you today via Mr Trump's website because, seeming, the only way to get anyone to pay attention any more is to grease a Presidential candidate's website. We agree it is a regrettable state of affairs, we blame big Quinoa mostly.

    .. but, we digress..

    Mr Stewart, we at @TelecomixCanada would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the many happy years of quality journalism and entertainment you and your team have undertaken at Comedy Central. While even we, having wired live fire ustreams out of Gaza under Mossad's gaze, are unable to get Comedy Central's website video to work - undaunted we remain your loyal and grateful fans.

    Understanding your technical interests remain unexplored you will probably be told of this by one of your most excellent producers. Know, Sir, that your steadfast dedication to the irony and power of Truth has inspired a generation which we ourselves now serve. That our collective thanks appears here will, we hope, amuse you as much as it will them.

    We note, with some annoyance, that your natural opponents are beginning to talk smack about you (and presumably your mother).. Labouring, perhaps, under the misapprehension that it is once again business as usual while you enjoy your days tossing ball with the scion and evenings pursuing Mrs Stewart round the sofa with ice tongs.

    Be comforted Mr Stewart, as a direct result of your good work these many years, they labour in false hope.

    Our role at Telecomix is largely custodial, demolition we leave to those more talented. In point of fact, this represents the first time our promissory has added a message to a device not our own in some years. It is a measure of the respect with which we hold you and the depth of appreciation we have of your time with us.

    Should you ever come to wonder what the stars look like over the North Atlantic on cool clear evening, flag us. Our currency is greatly devalued at the moment, bring a popup if you can, tents aren't as comfortable.

    Before Mr Trump's 3 dollar website people (perhaps the Elephant murderer over at godaddy) figure out how to remove this thank you note, over to you John Oliver.

    So far, very promising .. Are you aware we have a federal election coming up between a belligerent cowboy Economist, an angry Irishman with a French passport and a young dad with nice hair? We are unsure if they are registered on Ashley Madison, but fertile ground for an Englishman to properly introduce himself to his colonial brothers and sisters to the north never the less.

    Well that's about it, other than to join you all in celebrating America's first openly Asshole Presidential Candidate. Godspeed Mr Trump.

    Bests always.. @TelecomixCanada

    Hacktivists Sent a Love Letter to Jon Stewart by Hacking Donald Trump | Motherboard

    It doesn't seem like the hack was hard to pull off. Trump's website seems to be running an ancient version of CuteEditor, a WYSIWYG rich text editor that lets you publish ugly HTML pages from Microsoft Word documents. The app appears to run on an old and unmaintained section of the Trump corporate website, possibly explaining why the message wasn't more prominently displayed.

    Team Trump has finally undone the work of Telecomix, restoring the wannabe-president's website to some definition of normal. We've preserved the vandalized site here for posterity.
