In five easy steps.

1. Admit you are powerless over something … and feel the need to do something about it.
2. Look for something bigger …
3. Follow something bigger if possible …
4. Never forget.
5. Never tell.

No?

What’s that you say? Sounds a little like a convoluted twelve step program and a little like something altogether different?

Well, OK … so maybe it does.

I always laughed when I taught Intro to PC’s  … and inevitably a student would ask “Do you know how to hack into things?”

What? Me? I don’t know nothin’ ’bout birthin’ babies about hacking computers. I was lucky I knew enough to teach Intro to PC’s, right? Must not have had anyone else to teach the class. No clue why they picked me.

Why I’m so incompetent … How incompetent are you? … I’m so incompetent that once someone wrote about me “Despite your high opinion of your computer skills, you are not smart enough to keep things undiscoverable.”

Because it is so hard to do. 

As some of you know, I am a fan of the t-shirts which are sold on woot.com. They make me laugh. Each week there is a competition anyone can enter … with a theme.

This week the theme was Programming and Coding. The first winner today was Hacker. With glow-in-the-dark ink.

This is what you see by day.This is what you see by night ... with glow-in-the-dark ink.

The one group that has been getting a lot of press recently has been Anonymous.

They appear to be a kind of latter-day Robin Hood … with a dash of revenge.

Can’t imagine who would want to wreak revenge for anything.

But then I am too stupid to know about stuff like this. See quote above.

I don’t think they have t-shirts.

But they do have masks.

I understand they have cake, too.

I do like cake.

Here is a mirror of a mirror of a mirror of a mirror … in case you are also someone who is also too stupid … but who is a little bit curious.
