I've crossed over to the "Dark Side" of IT...

So I found 2 people who knew how to hack/crack, unfortunately they couldn’t get into the social networking site I wanted to infiltrate, however they did help me access some premium content for certain software and sites so it wasn’t a total bummer!
But I am determined to solve this little problem of mine.
So I extended my research, and discovered this easy to read, almost passionate site on how to become a hacker. Here's an extract from it:

"There is a community, a shared culture, of expert programmers and networking wizards that traces its history back through decades to the first time-sharing minicomputers and the earliest ARPAnet experiments. The members of this culture originated the term ‘hacker’. ( basicaly a person with technical adeptness and a delight in solving problems and overcoming limits)

Hackers built the Internet. Hackers made the Unix operating system what it is today. Hackers run Usenet. Hackers make the World Wide Web work. If you are part of this culture, if you have contributed to it and other people in it know who you are and call you a hacker, you're a hacker.

The hacker mind-set is not confined to this software-hacker culture. There are people who apply the hacker attitude to other things, like electronics or music — actually, you can find it at the highest levels of any science or art. Software hackers recognize these kindred spirits elsewhere and may call them ‘hackers’ too — and some claim that the hacker nature is really independent of the particular medium the hacker works in. But in the rest of this document we will focus on the skills and attitudes of software hackers, and the traditions of the shared culture that originated the term ‘hacker’.

There is another group of people who loudly call themselves hackers, but aren't. These are people (mainly adolescent males) who get a kick out of breaking into computers and phreaking the phone system. Real hackers call these people ‘crackers’ and want nothing to do with them. Real hackers mostly think crackers are lazy, irresponsible, and not very bright, and object that being able to break security doesn't make you a hacker any more than being able to hotwire cars makes you an automotive engineer.

Unfortunately, many journalists and writers have been fooled into using the word ‘hacker’ to describe crackers; this irritates real hackers no end.

The basic difference is this: hackers build things, crackers break them."

After reading this, I have added becoming a hacker to my many aspirations; that currently includ: becoming a political activist for the development of African states and peoples,
renown painter/poet,
setting up an open to the public studios slash gallery,
creating Uganda’s first ever adult animated series on the boondocks level,
making a pulp fiction film,
becoming a mommy,
starting an animated alternative band similar to the gorrilaz, lol, me and my bro got this one all figured out…afro-fusion-metal, a mix between sepultura’s album roots and system of a down and Nigeria’s rooftop emcees and Botswana’s Tey Grin…no? You’d have to here it to get it…anyways more about that later, back to the point...

It has dawned on me that becoming a hacker is not a simple aspiration, to begin with I have to learn a programming language (computer talk)…its like learning how to read and write again! And to make it even harder, programming is ever changing, due to technological changes, so I have to keep up with it! The site advised starting with Python, (my incognito hacker friend started with Rubi ) any programmers know any other programming langhuages that are a good and easy starting point??

Also have to get an open source unixes , (operating systems of the internet) because learning to hack on a Microsoft Windows machine (which is what I have) or under any other closed-source system is like “trying to learn to dance while wearing a body cast.” Lol.

So I'll most likely get Linux because you can apparently run both Linux and Microsoft windows on the same machine (my personal laptop).

I also need to learn how to write HTML’s, and I have designed some small pointless sluggish websites before at school, this blog not included, plus it’s a more realistic place to start learning programming.

Well enough with all the computer geek talk, but if any programmers out there (and I suspect there are quite a few of you out there in Blogsville) any helpful tips, links, info will be much appreciated. Plus also looking for a programming wizard mentor of sorts, this young grasshopper is eager to learn…as this appropriate Zen poem puts it:

"To follow the path:
look to the master,
follow the master,
walk with the master,
see through the master,
become the master."

But before that, I shall use amateur easy to use crack codes I found on this dope site to speed up downloads, access and use premium software, games, videos, ‘out of bounds stuff’ etc, only for personal use tho, no bootlegging! Lol, so its only half evil.

In the 'hacker spirit', I shall leave you with this:


Its called The Glider, It's a pattern from a mathematical simulation called the Game of Life

click here to find out why.
click here to see this stimulation in action.
click here to know why it is the hackers emblem

I’m not crazy about math’s myself, but I find this interesting, its abstract and has a sense of art about it, which I can appreciate! I've come to see the art not only in literature or paintings and sculptures, but also in logic...the building blocks of maths and physics, subjects i used to shun away from.
To those of you who concider it your domain, i admire your art, tip my hat for you!

Does anyone out there know (or knows someone who knows) how to hack into social networking accounts (without tricking the account owner into giving you thier account details eg sending them a fake link etc...) ???

Really important!

This knowledge wont be used for evil. Promise, just forgot my account log in details to both the social networking site as well as to the email address i had regestered with. and i need to delete these accounts...they hold information that caould be harmful if it was to land in the wrong hands!

Living under a dictator

Here are a few lessons I’ve learnt (the hard way) about living in very oppressive conditions:

1) Never talk back. Even if you don’t agree, keeping quite doesn’t mean you’ve give in, there are more tactful ways to get your opinions, views and feelings heard and recognized. After all actions speak louder than words!

2) The Underground movement is effective! Lay low, the more you try to raise your head the harder they push you down. If you keep the surface calm you will get them off your back, hence giving you a better chance of carrying out whatever you gotta do!

3) Don’t let them get to you. Despite how sharp the tongue or hard the slap, let it slip off you. Emotional involvement will compromise your efforts! Especially negative emotions, they shall take you over and under. Keep it strictly business, nothing personal. Also helps balance the karma…eg. You may put them down, but not kick them while they’re down too!

4) Don’t react, whatever torture technique they try out on you! Just smile…and swear on the inside. It helps, honestly. If you dying to shout back or sucka punch them in the nose, don’t, just do it in your head! …if it gets intense, and you find yourself in the enemy camp as a prisoner of war, mentally distance yourself…it shall pass. Never act in the heat of the moment.

5) You must always be one step ahead of the game! This means learning to lie on the spot, especially when under interrogation, studying their behavior and tendencies and systems as to see the loop holes. There are always loop holes.

6) You must remain fluid, like water, one of the strongest elements, because it tends to be underestimated. Water is often thought of as weak, yet it can penetrate walls. Its flexibility is the secret behind its indestructible nature, whether frozen or boiled…it simply assumes a different structure, ice or vapor, but always remains water.

7) Going head on against the system is futile. To successfully ‘fuck the system’ you must work from within the system. This means getting inside the head and heart of the whole operation, sucking up, kissing ass, using ‘parliamentary procedures’ till you have gained enough power to bring it down. A bit like Hitler’s rise to power (mwahahaha!) Beside the point, what we can however learn from this technique is that force is not always the best way to do something. If you can not get out of a tight position, get in deeper…

8) Pride comes before the fall. Once you’ve succeeded in carrying out any guerilla operation, never boast or brag, even to allies. Why? It gets to your head, and you make to noise and attract unwanted attention. Eventually, being over successful shall lead your to downfall. Give yourself a pat on the back, but although you have won the battle, you have not one the war.

9) A few techniques borrowed from the communists (namely Lenin and war communism), use all your resources: siblings, house-help, neighbors if you can, trusty boda boda guys, the few shillings you found in the couch!! Collectivized efforts make a bigger impact and bring about a greater change! However this is not a long term policy as it easily drains you and your resources.

10) "Check yourself before you wreck yourself", don’t get carried away! Revolution is like a wheel, once it stops moving it falls…what you have to know is when to park the revolution, because as Castro found out in the Congo, revolution cannot last forever…you have to know when to quit while your ahead. It’s hard not to get carried away though, people always do, but you gotta always rethink why you are in it in the first place. In my case, I am not trying to ‘overthrow the totalitarian regime’, or even try to achieve a ‘collateral government’, I’m just trying to survive living at home until I can get the hell outta here!

Stirring Revolution…

Don’t you just hate people who walk into a room and instead of appreciating the flowers on the table they immediately comment on the dirt under the table? Who instead of greeting you they frown upon you and ask why you are still in your PJ’s? C’mon it’s a Saturday morning…

Self proclaimed ‘intellectuals’ who love quarrelling about everything you do, but can’t stand it when you argue back or try to justify yourself? Who are always talking about healthily lifestyles diet and exercise, lecturing you about how you should cut down on the salt, yet are overweight? Who can’t take a joke, and think their annoying play fighting is amusing? Who believe that because you’ve messed up once or twice you’re a criminal, who must not be trusted ever again, and sentence you to solitary confinement, moreover without solid evidence, a reasonable or valid reason and a fair trial? Who feel like they don’t need to explain themselves just because they are older than you? Who refuse to try to understand your individual differences, and simply take them as forms of rebellion against what is right and proper according to them. Who feel righteous yet cast darker shadows than you? Who are always asking you in an accusing tone if you’ve been smoking when you’ve clearly been clean for months now.

The true victims of swine flu...

For those with poor eyesight, it says:
As the two friends wandered through the snow on their way home, Piglet grinned to himself, thinking how lucky he was to have a best friend like Pooh.

Pooh thought to himslef: "if the Pig sneezes, he's fucken dead."

Bootleged this from this cool blog right here...

J: i just knew holy shit
I: am i that easy 2 read??
J: yes. lol
I: lol ... damn the impersonal nature of online chats that makes u want to tell all....

This is an extract of a IM chat I had eariler on today on yahoo messenger, (although she was on msn), and since we no longer go to school for classes, this is the easiest way i talk to my friends.

Funny though how we end up talking about things we would have not usually brought up if we were talking face to face, at school especially...more interstingly is how she knew without me saying, it could have been anything!!...or am i that easy to read?!

School is a place where...

"School is a place where former A students teach mostly B students to work for C students"

An over exaggeration or more truth than educators are comfortable with ?
