Perhaps you should have read a little more carefully. I said I *ROM* hack.
That means I take Japanese ROMs and translate them into English.
Occasionally, I take an English ROM and edit the graphics and/or levels.

What you're asking me to do is help you commit a felony. If someone
illegaly hacked into your site, you should report them to the proper
authorities, *especially* if you know who did it. Hacking him to get
revenge is not only juvenile, it's illegal.

Not only did you ask a complete stranger to help you commit a crime, you
apparently did it from your mom's e-mail address, thus endangering her as
well. If you wanted me to reply to one of those other addresses, you should
have sent your e-mail *from* one of those addresses. I never change the to
address in an e-mail such as this because if you're ignorant enough to ask
a total stranger to teach you how to commit felonies, you're ignorant
enough to give me the wrong address, thus causing me to e-mail some
unsuspecting, undeserving stranger. So now, as a result of your stupidity,
your mom will probably get in trouble when I report you to your ISP for
intending to commit a crime. You see, if someone tells you they're going to
break the law, you're legally obligated to report them to the proper
authorities. If you don't, you can be arrested as an accessory to the
crime. I don't trust that you're smart enough to remove any traces from
your computer of you asking me to help you break the law, so I feel
obligated to turn you in for my own protection.

In the future, if you're not rotting away in a jail cell somewhere, perhaps
you should put a lot more thought into it before e-mailing someone. That
way, you could 1) make sure they're actually talking about the same thing
you are and 2) make sure you're not endangering them to a point that
they'll feel obligated to narc you out.

In closing, carbon monoxoide is your friend. I strongly suggest closing the
garage door, turning your mom's car on and sitting near the tailpipe. Think
of it as hacking yourself.
