    I can agree with that. I guess you have to be able to distinguish between them.

    We both have the same basic point of view, as i agree with your definition of hacking entirely, just different ways of making that clear.

    Here's an idea: FORGET THE WORD.

    You only fix problems with a computer, or purposely cause them.

    Possible Employer:
    And, what are your technical qualifications?

    You:
    Ohhhh, dude, I'm a hacker!
    The world is waiting. I must leave you now.

    Hackers are those that use their knowledge. They see a problem. They think "How can I solve it" and they get on with it. They don't do it maliciously. Nor do they argue over pathetic things. They discuss problems.

    Crackers are pathetic creatures, Living lives of solitude underground, not caring about others.

    You cannot spot a hacker walking down the street.
    But you can spot the crackers, shiftly looking constantly around them

    I used to know someone, he claimed he was a hacker. Didn't care too much about it. But then, he has suddenly severed all ties with anyone. Hitched himself onto broadband, and now he hasn't been seen for three months. I always try and contact him. But nothing.

    Yeah, agreed hehe. I highly doubt that the government has anything that they really want to be kept secret connected to the internet which is what makes it all so silly.

    A buddy of mine claimed he hacked into my computer at a lan party, i asked him what he saw and he said a bunch of porn.

    i responded with "Congratulations, you are the first official moron to hack into a SHARED folder."

    actually the government gets hacked all the time, once the navy got hacked and someone stole lots of statilite information and code and stuff, don't rember where the artical is but you could look it up.
