right. as it's probably obvious, i'm new. but the real problem is for about 11 years i've wanted to be a hacker...i just haven't had the resources, nor help, to do so. i'm the worst kind of newbie because the most technical knowledge i have is a keyboarding class, but i'm working on getting into programming classes. if anyone can help me out. start me off, give me tips, or take me under their wing, i'd be extremely greatful. i work with windows though, so my resource on my home computer (this isn't mine) is windows XP...(if i can ever get the system disc to get my 120 gig hardrive started) so yeah, thanks if you can help.
