    Spec? Hush Your Mouth Old Guy! i r l337. Been that way ever since I got my ICBM address. ****s-Sake I remember updating routing tables prior to DNS so PISS OFF! (remember EGP, HELLO, Gated)? If Spec is a Hacker, my mother is the Queen of England. Don't ever put Spec in the same category with Hackers. ****ing Script Kiddie couldn't program his way out of a while loop.

    Hello Dino,

    Script Kiddie couldn't program his way out of a while loop.
    You don't; they are supposed to continue "while" you have come back from the pub/bar!

    Now, "do if, else, go to" .......is a different concept is it not?

    I came across some of my 80 column punch card programs the other day

    My comment was intended to point out that The_Spec still does things for amusement, rather than monetary gain.

    Your mother is not the queen of England..............she isn't ugly......silly boy!
    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.
    What profiteth a man if he gains the entire World at the expense of his immortal soul?

    Aaron old chap, please believe me when I say that I did not intend to give offence.

    I'm done talking about that sort of bullsh*t
    I can only quote the late Sir Winston Churchill (British PM in WWII) regarding us British and yourselves:

    "We are two nations divided by a common language"


    You said:

    I just wanted an outlet to express my IT related hobbies.
    I said:

    The_Spec still does things for amusement, rather than monetary gain.
    By which I meant that you are not a cybercriminal.........

    Now, in my use of English, hobby = pastime = amusement................

    So, I was saying exactly what you have confirmed? but from the wrong side of the pond, in language terms?

    Gary McKinnon is not, and never was, a hacker.............he was only a bloody sysop (machine minder) at the best. He used standard remote access tools, and relied on a blank password.

    Now, I know you have done similar sorts of thing, but your attitude seems (to me) to be "why make things more difficult than they are?"

    Just to set things straight

    And thank you for your kind sympathies on my wife's death.
