    technicaly you should be able to! in fact you could even if you didn't have a user/password, they call it hacking!
    if a contradiction was contradicted would that contradition contradict the origional crontradiction?

    This can be done, but probably not the way you're thinking. You write a cgi program that does whatever you want it to and then it writes to a text file on the server. That program could also take the data and turn it into a web page if you so wished. But if you want a program on your hard drive to do this then you're pretty much out of luck unless you know how to program with sockets.

    If your thinking you can just connect and then use fopen() and all that stuff, hackers would have already taken over the world by now...

    then use sockets, sockets arent just for windows you know. Try using fcntl.
