Hey everyone, it's been while. A very long while, sorry. But I can remember you all giving me hell because you didn't even think I was real. You thought Techb was making me up. I'm his wife and a total noob at all of this. Give this person a break. Poor person thinks you are teaming up on him. Hey new guy, they do this to everyone. What happened to the good doctor and then leaving them alone? I know I'm a hippie in all this, but whatever
Yeah, yeah. The thing is, you were not babbling on about hacking things and boasting about being a skid. You, from me, at least know what hacking really is. I mean come on, I preach to you every day about it and try and try to put *nix on your laptop. Blah, more blah, and some blah supporting what I say...
I know where your coming from and I know what your trying to do. But even then, when you join the military or something that REQUIRES discipline, what happens? They break you down, make you forget what you think you know and build you in the image it should have been in the first place. We all here have been through it. We all who are serious and know what this culture is about has had this kinda thing. Sure, when I didn't know shit was all about breaking sites and pwning the weak. But I learned and delved more into what it is supposed to be. I read the Cathedral and the Bazaar, I read the manifestos posted by the pioneers. I read the open letter from Bill Gates bashing opensource and hacking. I have seen and been apart of the things I hold dear to me now.
When I see something like this, I see a teen that is only fed by the media of what hacking is. We all have our motives getting started. But only a select few get past the "pwning" and see what it is really about. What the real culture is, and what drives us, why we are and who we are and what it is to ACTUALLY be a hacker. Someone with the digital morals, hex digested meals, and bleed the binary transactions of the internet.
Welcome, OP. Welcome to what could
be a lifestyle and mindset. Welcome to what I worked so far 8 years to be, and molded from 16 years in the making. Take heed, be warned, and do the right thing. Read, do research, and know what being a hacker is really about.
