Diary Of A Hacker


hackerYesterday I was browsing through all the directories of my laptop to delete all the unnecessary files in order to free up the disk space . In the process I encountered a number of files , the existence of whom I was not aware of . One of these files was ” Diary Of A Hacker.docx ” . The title itself was enough to interest me . I started reading it without wasting any time ………

Diary of a Hacker

What I am about to write about happened in October of 1988,
right after I had turned 16.

Yes, I had a Computer.
Yes, I was a hacker.
Yes, this is my story.

This story is all true. The events in the story are as real
as the noses on your faces. Any attempt to change this story
would be boring, and unnescessary……..

………I Loved the feeling of flying through the ‘Net, talking to the
other Hackers like me, always trying to impress one another.
They came in all fashions of Handles: The Ax Murderer, Psycho,
The Hacker Kid, Phobia, Etc…the list is nearly endless. And
each with an utterly unique personality, so far advanced from
the Morons we all remember at high school. I loved talking to
these “Wanderers of the Wunderland” so much, I would call all
over the united states just to do that………….

…………Knowledge IS power. I never did good in High
School. Knowledge is not there, it was in the ‘Net! THAT
was where I was a King. That was where I was a God. ANYONE
who has truely roamed the ‘Net or been in that type of world
could tell you that, (Right, King Blotto?) hands down.
I loved running home, or taking the bus, right into my
basement! Homework? Bah! What a waste of time it was,
compared to the thrill of Hacking? Homework was little more
than review. I sat down and got onto my Computer and began to
type. I called a rather large BBS in which, Hackers frequented.
Nowadays they are considered “Wandering” Boards. They appear to
wander because they change phone numbers all the time…………..

……… One guy, I will call Harlock,
offered me something none of the others could. The ability
to USE At&t all I wanted for free. He said he would teach me
how to use their LOOP Numbers and not get caught, also teach me
to call other places, drop to their dos shells, and make hidden
directories where I could put my “borrowed” Wares. All for a
I accepted……….

……..I was at home watching some christmas shopping commercials and
drinking a Jolt, when I recieved a phone call from my buddy
Dr.Antristo. He told me that Argonne had gotten the project and
that someone I knew was the project manager. The Password was
Anti-RX…?!? I sighed and said what the hell, why not. Lets
see what our wonderful government is up to now………..

The document contained a lot more about this hacker’s activities . I found it very interesting and was glad that I came across it by accident . If you liked these few lines of the diary and have got some time at your disposal , you can download the entire diary from HERE .
