moved to news


The use of "hacker" to mean "security breaker" is a confusion on the part of the mass media. We hackers refuse to recognize that meaning, and continue using the word to mean, "Someone who loves to program and enjoys being clever about it."

sounds to me like its a lot more trouble than its worth to try and get your money back, who really keeps their reciepts for that long. i also heard that part of the money will go to buying cds and learning tools for schools.
