What the Hack ?! - the temptation of the Dark Side 'For educational purposes' ... that must be about the most widespread excuse for publishing virus creation tools,descriptions of exploits, 'hacking' manuals and the likes.

Gifts were exchanged, I overindulged in home cookin’, but in the end, I sat with a piece of paper scribbling notes on what it was like for her (and other family members) to live through the Great Depression. I’m fortunate that I haven’t felt the effects of the recession, so I thought it would be interesting to get her point of view since she lived through one of the harshest periods of American history.
