Good learning for new hackers, wont get into trouble - 10/07/04 11:04 PM

I found a new game, many of you may have heard of it, but its called "Uplink: Hacker Elite". The help files on it have some good facts and some of it is god practice. Its pretty fun, i found myself playing it 200+ minutes at a time. If your interested, google it. Unless you buy it, you can only try to demo which only allows you do playin until you reach the rank of confident. The demo includes a full tutorial on how to play the game. The ranks ( up to confident ) are

Beginner
Novice
Confident

You can continue playing on the same account until you reach confident, and you can keep from reaching that level by abandoning a mission every time you reach novice.

Ok, you're discussing a game; chances are it'd go in "Gaming"

Yes, but it also has to do with hacking, and i could not decide which one to put it in, so i put it in general

Tim, for one, unreal was being sarcastic. Number two, that entire game is stupid. Not a single piece of it is related to the real world as far as computers go.
