Once there was a promising young technomancer who abandoned all of his principles and collected everyone's data. He told them it was safe with him, and in time they believed him.

Over time the technomancer realized he had amassed so much information that he became mightier than even the leaders of the world, but his greed and desire for wealth kept him from noticing.

He began to sell his influence to these leaders and got them hooked on his data.

They used it solve crimes, and they used it protect the endangered, and they used it to detect who would likely do crime, and they used it to keep the people divided, and they used it to topple one another's nations.

All the while making the no longer young technomancer even more powerful and wealthy.

The prophecy says that the Technomancer will try to destroy those who oppose him. But the agents of the wires will bring him to his knees by rebuilding what was lost.

Today's the birthday of Grace Hopper, AKA "Amazing Grace." She was a computer scientist, programmer, and educator whose pioneering work on early computers and amiably no-nonsense attitude when teaching continues to inspire.

I painted her once.

Out of all the ridiculousness in the movie Hackers, the most absurd is that people in Japan keep torii gates inside their house.

I just stumbled upon the wonderful world of esoteric programming languages and I’m really digging Piet, where the programs look like abstract paintings.

Hey, just looked at the date.

If my indicators are correct... it is exactly one year since hackers.town rose from the phoenix ashes of hackers.town mk. 1.

When your grandchildren come over for christmas and gather around the hearth... hot cocoa in hand... and you feel your heart happy... happier than it's ever been...

Be sure you have stories to tell them from the right side of the coming cyberwar.

The future must be restored.

One of the dimms in my son’s computing machina just poo’d the loo, but thankfully I have a box full of memories from @thegibson.

The young :joey: is back up and running, which is great because he runs an older dual socket Xeon system that doubles as a space heater.

Just wanna say that hackers.town is one of the better communities I’ve come across in both meatspace and cyberspace. Keep it weird, townies.

So jumping into Hack the Box right before final exams wasn't a good idea. Too much fun.

Whoops! There goes my GPA.

My greatest dislike with printed books is that you can’t do a CTRL + F on them. Otherwise, they’re pretty neat.
