If you look at our education system from kindergarten to 12th grade. It’s based on learning repetition. Learning how to formulate a math problem, to find x. Reading a book or essay and then, writing an essay or a paper containing a specific number of words or pages. When I say it’s based on repetition, I mean it’s the same process over and over again. Enter class, listen to the teacher talk about something, open book to specific spot, study and then repeat the information you studied back onto paper in the form of a test. The only questions you ask are based on the topic you are being taught.
So, My wife’s uncle gave me a Macbook of his that worked, but the LCD panel was not working, or so I thought. I proceeded to do a full tear down on it, attempting to locate the problem, having found what I thought the issue was, a pinched display cable (which turned out to be incorrect). I took the macbook to the Apple store to see if they could assist, granted the macbook wasn’t in one piece anymore. The Apple rep explained, because I had taken the whole laptop apart, they were unable to service it and suggested I take the computer to the MacStore. Which I happily did, in hopes they would solve my problem.
So, recently I have been doing a lot of coding, both bash and php/html. The other day I was at work and a co-worker of mine who handles abuse complaints mentioned he had to process over 100 domains for something he was working on. I instantly thought about writing code to accomplish it, I asked what he needed off of the domains, to which he responded IP and who owns it.
There has been a lot of buzz recently about Windows XP’s End of Life next year, and a lot of people think of Hackers when they think of, or hear about Linux. What a lot of people fail to understand is, not all hackers are bad, the primary definition of a hacker is, “An enthusiastic and skillful computer programmer or user.”
