I'll be the first to admit I don't know a damn thing about hacking / cracking, nor do I really care to learn. Sure, I consider myself "l33t" because I wrote many exciting text-adventure games in BASIC on my Apple IIC, but beyond that I don't know a damn thing about programming or hacking. I leave all the techincal crap up to the professionals, and stick to writing nonsense for SA and VE.

With this in mind, it really struck me by surprise that some idiot out there ICQed me, asking for help hacking somebody's computer. I assume some other smartass gave him my UIN, claiming I could aid him in his pursuit of wannabe l33tness. So I ended up giving him all the help I could by making up various bullshit computer terms, inside jokes, and bogus definitions that usually had something to do with this site. Good luck hacking, Pike.

Lowtax - Have you done any work with the Pusherbot v2.1 client hack prog?

Lowtax - What about a basic Shoverbot? These programs force fake data packets through a false TMCPT server and reroute the service modules for outgoing packets which can screw up their net connection

PiKe - no like i said all ive done is read up a little and downloaded a few stuff

    Meditations from a Movable Weiner

    Sometimes I dream that I'm sitting in the back of the defunct Weinermobile as it careens driverless down the highway. At first I thought this was symbolic of the powerlessness I feel in life, but then I realized it's actually the Weinermobile's dream of being able to drive again.

    BarkWire.com Dog Reviews: The Barquis de Sade & Cleaver

    Three years ago, when we were burying my uncle, Cleaver and some gross lady dog (Solstice???) showed up at the cemetery and starting going at it really loudly. It ruined everything and we had to have a "re-do" the next day and it cost a fortune. I've hated him ever since for that.
