Your mind is like a parachute, it don't work if you don't open it.

"The young... and I see myself as a young one... we must study and study hard. We are not to say that my eyes hurt, that I'm not fond of reading, that I get tired, that there are no eye-glasses, that I have too many guards, that the children won't let me sleep... all those things people come up with. We must study by all means."
speak your mind becuase those who matter don't mind and those who mind don't matter
Debugging is twice as hard as writing the code in the first place. Therefore, if you write the code as cleverly as possible, you are, by definition, not smart enough to debug it.

"Give a man a crack, and he'll be hungry again tomorrow,
teach him how to crack, and he'll never be hungry again"
"That's the whole point in cracking:

To follow the path:
look to the master, follow the master, walk with the master, see through the master, become the master.
Experience is the name everyone gives to their mistakes.
Failure is just the opportunity to start over again more intelligently!

Whether you are paranoid or not -- they may still be out to get you...
"It's people like this that make you realize how little you've accomplished. It is a sobering thought, for instance, that when Mozart was my age, he had been dead for two years." - Tom Lehrer

I contend that we are both atheists. I just believe in one fewer god than you do. When you understand why you dismiss all the other possible gods, you will understand why I dismiss yours.

Make people think you're strange. If you can't, at least make them think there's two of you!

There are many stories to be told.
Even more things to be learned.
We get off on it.
The giant wave that is the lust for knowledge washes over us,
yet somehow, we survive enough to swim another day.
Here's to all you 'fishies'.....
I trust this 'pond' is big enough to accomodate us all!
And most of all, Respect! (that's the version that's based on having
earned it through leading by example, not that bullshit of instilling
it through fear).
Imagine this. There is a long straight path that will get you home relatively fast. It is doubtful you will get there this way though, because you will get hungry and there is no food on the path.
Beside the path is a jungle. It is full of food, but it takes longer to reach your home through there.
There are three kinds of people..
1) People who try to make it across the path by running and hoping to reach their safe home before they run out of food.
2) People who take a first trip through the jungle, which gives them enough food to take the straight path a lot of times after that. (they occasionally quickly skid on and off the path when they run out)
3) People who, at one point through the jungle, said : "Damn, its nicer in here anyway. I'll build a treehouse."
1 are the people that come in and out of the scene to get a single crack
2 are the crackers that make up most of the scene
3 are the reversers
1. crackers who are just doing it for a hobby while in a teenage rebelious state and once matured will leave the scene (this is the typical stereotype of the rest of the world)
2. crackers who attain certain understanding and maturity in their life during their cracking career, thus reaching a level from which they can be "enlightened" under +ORC's ideals.. by others teachings. *note* these people could very well become just as good of reversers as the rest.
3. reversers who have always reversed things from a very young age, not taken things for granted and not taken the word of people they trust, but always looking and checking up on things to see how they really work. Always having a keen interest in learning, that which is not taught.
Remember, never just accept what you know. Look at what you've been told, and decide for yourself what is true and what is not.
Faking your emotions is just the beginning. Living the new reality as if it were your own is quite another.

This is one of the hardest lessons for humans to learn. We cannot admit that
things might be neither good nor evil, neither cruel nor kind, but simply
callous - indifferent to all suffering, lacking all purpose.
-- Richard Dawkins
Software is like sex, it's better when it's free.

We know what we know and we don't know what we don't know. We do know there are some things we don't know .....
by the way, I took my soft back version and smacked myself in
the groin and, yes, it can cause some damage. experimentation == knowledge
It seems to me that makes it a book worth recommending.
laziness is the foundation of efficiency
Programming without knowing advanced algebra is like speaking without the use of foul words... you can do it, but you can't have any fun without it.
There is no chance to develope an algorithm or formula to generate random numbers.
If you could, then it wont be a random number..

Of course, programs can't think for themselves, but do they know that?
Even a stopped clock is right twice a day
My definition of strategy: it is the art and science of placing yourself
in a position where you have more benificial outcomes than before.
