MercynRe he looks so lonely in front of his glowing screen 010427

nix0r he rubs his eyes. he ought to sleep, but he wouldn't be able to if he tried.

the light washes over the face, rushes into the eyes, floods into the soul of a hacker. washing over the face, the light gleams off the eyes, and gives a glimpse of the soul of a hacker.

would that you were awake, too, and here to see it.

User24 hey, ditto. No you absolutely may NOT like me. I thrive in a teenage pit of self hate and despair, and the thought of someone liking me might actually make me happy and i can't have that.

I like you, too. ;)

Effingham Fish Everyone thinks I am, but I'm not. It really bugs me, sometimes. Is it the glasses? The generally nerdish air? The anti-anti-social tendencies? What?? 011030

cube I have been programming in a variety of languages and platforms for many years, but wouldn't presume to call myself a hacker. I'm from that old_school which holds true hackers in high esteem. These were individuals dedicated to their craft - driven to beating systems, usually to improve them and usually just for the accolades of their peers.

Having studied gaming code some, I'd have to catagorize gamers in the same league. These guys have to squeeze system resources to the max which means getting right down to the metal and coming up with elegant algorithms.

It's too bad hacking has become synonymous with evil. It may have kept a lot of talent from learning to push the boundaries of our virual world. And pushing boundaries ever was a_good_thing...
