After a long time… yeh!@# no need to say that i’m “three” busy to update ma blog. anyways!@# thought this is “The time to spend some Time” updating ma blog so i’m now publishing something which wasn’t actually written by me, I always wanted to publish this but had no opportunity to do so, As a clue, this is the literature of our TYPE. “so what on earth is that?” you might ask ok go on!@#
This is a classic article written by a “The Mentor” which shows some insight into the mind of a computer hacker. This article can be found all over the Internet and is a staple on many “hacker” websites. The article apparently first appeared in the hacker magazine =Phrack Inc.=, Volume One, Issue 7, Phile 3 of 10.
/The Conscience of a Hacker//
Written on January 8, 1986=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
Another one got caught today, it's all over the papers. "TeenagerArrested in Computer Crime Scandal", "Hacker Arrested after Bank Tampering"... Damn kids. They're all alike.
But did you, in your three-piece psychology and 1950's technobrain,ever take a look behind the eyes of the hacker? Did you ever wonder whatmade him tick, what forces shaped him, what may have molded him? I am a hacker, enter my world... Mine is a world that begins with school... I'm smarter than most ofthe other kids, this crap they teach us bores me... Damn underachiever. They're all alike.
I'm in junior high or high school. I've listened to teachers explainfor the fifteenth time how to reduce a fraction. I understand it. "No, Ms.Smith, I didn't show my work. I did it in my head..." Damn kid. Probably copied it. They're all alike.
I made a discovery today. I found a computer. Wait a second, this iscool. It does what I want it to. If it makes a mistake, it's because Iscrewed it up. Not because it doesn't like me... Or feels threatened by me... Or thinks I'm a smart ass... Or doesn't like teaching and shouldn't be here... Damn kid. All he does is play games. They're all alike.
And then it happened... a door opened to a world... rushing throughthe phone line like heroin through an addict's veins, an electronic pulse issent out, a refuge from the day-to-day incompetencies is sought... a board isfound. "This is it... this is where I belong..." I know everyone here... even if I've never met them, never talked tothem, may never hear from them again... I know you all... Damn kid. Tying up the phone line again. They're all alike...
You bet your ass we're all alike... we've been spoon-fed baby food atschool when we hungered for steak... the bits of meat that you did let slipthrough were pre-chewed and tasteless. We've been dominated by sadists, orignored by the apathetic. The few that had something to teach found us will-ing pupils, but those few are like drops of water in the desert.
This is our world now... the world of the electron and the switch, thebeauty of the baud. We make use of a service already existing without payingfor what could be dirt-cheap if it wasn't run by profiteering gluttons, andyou call us criminals. We explore... and you call us criminals. We seekafter knowledge... and you call us criminals. We exist without skin color,without nationality, without religious bias... and you call us criminals.You build atomic bombs, you wage wars, you murder, cheat, and lie to usand try to make us believe it's for our own good, yet we're the criminals.
Yes, I am a criminal. My crime is that of curiosity. My crime isthat of judging people by what they say and think, not what they look like.My crime is that of outsmarting you, something that you will never forgive mefor.
I am a hacker, and this is my manifesto. You may stop this individual,but you can't stop us all... after all, we're all alike.
Anyways!@# know what is the funniest thing is? this manifesto is copyrighted to some as**ole who works in a school of LOW i saw this on the net while surfing and got soooo angry with this pathetic Pof. “ANE SUSAANO” 😀

How can some one take the ownership of this kind of thing? Anyway back to the topic,
Our friend “The mentor ” got busted after some days from writing this but his words still remains. It will take some time for the LAW (or LOW 😀 ) guys to wipe this out from their imaginary “secured world”. After all “They Can’t stop us all!@#” 😀

Please treat this as an extremely apologetic intrusion. I’m the one who has been plaguing everyone on Kottu with my thesis – http://diethesisdie.blogspot.com. My final chapter is a case study on Kottu and its success as a Sri Lankan blog community. I’ve been reading your blog on a regular basis (its all a part of the research ) and I found your posts very interesting. I was wondering if you could please participate in my questionnaire to tell me YOUR opinions on Kottu and how it functions. Its available on the following link: http://ayeshea.wufoo.com/forms/untitled-form/
If not please let me know your mail address and I can mail it to you.
I WILL credit all bloggers whose opinions I use in the body of my thesis and identities will be protected if required. I can also link back to your blog from my academic blog as one of the Kottu bloggers whose opinions were used in the writing of the thesis.
This may come across as awfully presumptuous but I am now on my last leg and these opinions are really important to my final grade.
Thanks so much
