Anyone use the title "hacker" when talking to others?

Just curious

 

Me, I never use it. Hell, I don't think I am one.

 

I don't have the hacker ethic, but I like to {censored} around and change {censored} that wasn't meant to be changed. 

 

I consider hackers to be those who have the hacker ethic and love to {censored} around and change {censored} up.

 

Mainstream, unfortunately, confuses them with criminals.

You are inquisitive experimenter - not hacker :)

 

As for me, I find it interesting/entertaining to do something that is not easy to accomplish (in the field of computing mainly). Hackers have the other forum (MDL) :)

There are very few real hackers. Most of us "hackers" today are script kiddies; using exploits and patches that others have written. I don't see myself as a hacker. I'm not that intelligent with that type of stuff. I think it would be cool to, but, I'm not.

 

Some hackers are malicious. But, not all. Some just want to find holes in something just to see if they can. A lot of them actually report to sys admins when they find one. Hell, some companies pay people if they find exploits in their software.

 

My $0.02.

 

Poop. I didn't realize, thread necromancy :( .

That was the old definition for many people due to you having to build your computer and not get it pre-made boy making a computer must have been hard work  :moil:  :moil:  :P  :D .

I consider myself a life hacker. I like to poke around everything and uncover its full capabilities. I tweak, I study it, I do whatever it takes to make it suit my needs. That's the type of person I am anyways :D
