Re: [ISN] Computer Attack and Defense As Spectator Sport

Forwarded from: Times Enemy <te@xxxxxxx>


Finally something to make golf an exciting sport.  Perhaps it is just
that i am so very lacking in the skills department, i guess, or
perhaps it is that i just am not doing it right, but i have never
really considered 'hacking' to be so exciting.  It is beyond exciting
in various ways, but i ... i ... i am just speechless i guess.  This
is ... well, maybe someone was watching the movie Hackers a little too
much, or perhaps someone has been wondering what is the matrix a
little too long.  Yes, that must be it.  Either that, or i truly must
be missing something here.  Maybe, yes, i must most definitely tune
into this very athletic and on the edge of one's seat sport (?), so
that i might learn what it is i have been doing wrong all these years.

And to think, that i have introduced so much caffiene into my system,
just to stay awake, when had i been doing it proper like, i could have
done away with my routine work-outs and pots of coffee, by just
'hacking' the right way!  This is good.  I should most definitely have
all of my family watch also!  This will show them what draws me into
computers, what it is that causes me to disappear for massive amounts
of times, days even.  Yes, then they too can be drawn into the utterly
exciting world of text based typing!

:: blinks ::  Well, on the up side, i hope the music and visuals are neat.

Merry Christmas all ...
