Quote: The Hacker Ethic
Great excerpt from the book The Hacker Ethic: And the Spirit of the Information Age by Pekka Himanen on NYTimes. Here is an excerpt from the excerpt:
“The spirit behind other hackers’ creations is very similar to this. Torvalds is not alone in describing his work with statements like “Linux hackers do something because they find it to be very interesting.” For example, Vinton Cerf, who is sometimes called “the father of the Internet,” comments on the fascination programming exerts: “There was something amazingly enticing about programming.” Steve Wozniak, the person who built the first real personal computer, says forthrightly about his discovery of the wonders of programming: “It was just the most intriguing world.” This is a general spirit: hackers program because programming challenges are of intrinsic interest to them. Problems related to programming arouse genuine curiosity in the hacker and make him eager to learn more.“
Pretty sure the title and image says it all. This guy is hardcore!

Stop using IE. Seriously, just stop. At least for now. A serious 0-day vulnerability which exploits MME HTML has been discovered in every existing version of Windows / IE. Until this gets patched it is essential not to use IE as a browser at all.
While this has just recently been made public, you have to wonder how long this has been exploited quietly by the “bad guys”
