The news likes to use the word 'HACKER' rather than cracker mainly because it sounds cooler and many peaple don't know the difference between the 2. But instead of this being a who messed up the word hacker for everyone thread im going to pointout a show that "DIDN'T" make hackers look like crazed losers who do nothing but break things. That show is La Fem Nikita because the computer geeks in that show tracked peaple rather than make everything wired go BOOM except with the exception of guns going off Know any other great shows? Then post them
If peaple would understand that the Sys. Admin. who stalk IP & ISP are the real 'L33T' then maybe I'd have more patience and understanding with the computer illiterate but it is just sad that many peaple think they know how to protect themselves online yet they don't even know what or whom their enemies are.
