They are boring... lack creativity and beauty. :/ You should put more effort into your wallpapers - and maybe you need some more practice, too. Use Photoshop (if you didn't), and learn how to use it properly. :)

Quote: from Adriac on 1:42 am on July 19, 2003[br]As a hacker, I think I should get to define the word myself...

That first group's disregaurd for personal and information privacy makes them criminals. No, not really. To have a certain attitude or aversion to something does not necessarly involve to actually take action in a way that may offend or harm those who don't share their views. If one dislikes inform...

There is a designer from Belgium to blame - Luc Luycx (yes, folks, this is supposed to be a person's name, not that of a rare insect! :P). He recieved 24.000 Euro payment for his geographical incompetence. Poor Europe, indeed... we are bound to use money of which every coin may be an offense to our ...

Please, don't get me wrong: I didn't meant to blame all of you veterans for general noob flaming. ;) As far as I can tell for now, most people here seem to be the kind of really nice and helpful persons you like to discuss and interact with.

According to the definition of "hacker" in the FAQ by Steven Raymond, you don't have to be a criminal, i. e. commit illegal acts, to fit the term. Being "anti-authorical" does not include being a criminal. There are enough legal ways to fight against censorship and the bad habit ...

Applause! :D That was indeed a clean explanation. Do you know any sites that deal with the history of hacking and cracking (and esspecially the connection between the two)? I would love to read more about this.

Besides, I had no idea that topics are frequently pruned here.

First of all, I tried the forum search, but didn't find anything about this. Hopefully a topic similar to this doesn't already exist without me noticing. :) Second: I beg for your patience.
