I need opinions
After reading the complete Bastard Sys admin from michigan story I am inspire to write. I am wanting to write some cyber punk fiction. Would you all be interested in reading it? I was kinda thinking of making it like a fictional journal where I play the role of a hacker and record what is going on but also with some nararation so it would be a story but with journal. I also thought about just writing a storys I have the basis for his hardware and software.
40gb hard drive (20gb Mandrake 9.2 and 20gb Windows XP pro)
Plain old case
17" LCD flat planel display monitor
Old desktop- (just because)
4gb hd- Gentoo Linux
20gb hard drive- Slackware 9.0
wireless net connection
So thats what Ive got for the hardware aspect. Let me know of any changes I should make to make it seem more real.
I was also thinking like the reason he has the nice comps and stuff is because his parents are rich and they bought him the computers to keep him out of their hair because they are always working. So he got a huge interest in computers.
He would be 16yrs old and attend a private school. Despite being into computers so much he would have alot of friends and is pretty social.
Thats about all ive got ill write more probably later tonight. Let me know what you guys think and any comments are appreciated.

i would probably read the story, doesnt sound too bad, just dont make him too social..

Yea he wouldnt be really social like he would be hacking at night for late hours and rarely go out but like he wouldnt be a loner or anything.

Would also be appriciated if you'd use the edit button
Now i think everybody would be interested in reading a good hacker sotry, dont make it too technical, so that average users can read it too.

Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
The international ban against torturing prisoners of war does not necessarily apply to suspects detained in America\'s war on terror, Attorney General John Ashcroft told a Senate oversight committee

I think that it would be an excellent idea.
I agree with MemorY don't make it to technical, as n00bies to the world of Computer Security will have trouble understanding what they are reading.
So try to break the technical stuff down so that it's easy to understand.
But other then that Go for it
hopefully i'll have some reading material for those boring days at the Shop.
