How does a 2 year old hook up a computer and stay up to read manuals after their parents have gone to bed? I'm not trying to flame, but that seems very unlikely as most two year olds aren't even potty trained let alone reading computer manuals. I started learning by reading forums and ebooks mostly. That's how I still stay updated most of the time!



Lol, ageed. I'm pretty sure I was still grasping the aspect of speech at 2 years old, and im sure I couldn't read. How did I get started? I dunno, around 12 my dad got some computer, I think it ran win 3.1. He used it for the early version of "Quicken" on it mostly. I usually just played the helicopter game on it (the one were you navigate it through a cave without hitting the walls), but I was deep into console gaming back then, so I was doing that mostly. Later on, at 16, I moved in with my mother and step-dad, he had a computer with win 95 or 98 on it. And he knew a few things about computers.

He kept it pass protected at first. Then one day my friend came over and wanted to try to guess the password, well he did in about 3 tries. I remember it was "for my eyes only". My step dad came home while were logged in, he was mad. But he started letting me use the computer whenever, which ended up being all the time. I usually just browsed pr0n and things like that. Search engines were not really rampant yet so you just did a www.porn.com or searched in AOL or something. But the idea of AOL, dialup, and things like that were interesting to me back then.

In high school some friends of mine sort of "fell" into hacking, of course I got into, and every other counter-coulter activity in existence. Things were different back then, everybody was doing "pings of death" and doing netbios hacking. Then I moved out and wasn't online as much, and I got into hardware, as a profession and hobby. But about 4 years ago I just picked up were I left off with software and have been addicted ever since. I am self taught, and do know a little about most typical "hacking" subjects. looking back though, I think if I would have focused on one topic at a time, and not spread myself so much, I would have learned more this far.

I got into the computers and programming and hacking all when I was 15... I remember that I was a dumbass in computers and stuff before I turned 15... But when one of my buddy's in school showed me how to shutdown a remote computer... That got me curious and that is when I started reading about programming and hacking and stuff...

Then I realized what Linux really was... And that it is not one OS... But just a kernel.. my friends still think that it is an OS...

I started off with python and then moved to C... C really caught my attention with all it's low level stuff...

I was completely self taught... My parents and not at all tech savvy... And same case with most of my friends...

yp...no hacker can taught you what you wanna learn because he is hacker and hackers don't have time...

one have to learn on his own............
Curiosity is mother as said above.

Most kids on sites like this only want to fit in with people they view as being more intelligent and tech savvy than themselves.

I, on the other hand, simply like computers.

That's the difference between a true computer hobbyist and people who call themselves "hackers" to draw attention onto themselves.

If you want to learn about computers then read dry to-the-point computer related books (Instead of looking like a dork in front of a payphone... or trying to lockpick at a Defcon seminar.)

Getting around annoying restrictions and beating a 'foolproof' system were the main motives.... It's gives me a kick when i can outsmart others at their own game...

First encounter with computer was in the school... learned logo,basic but never understood the use of it... then had first encounter with internet during summer break.. i fell in love with it.. then from that time on read lots of books on computer but then still could not try out cz i did not have a computer.. during one summer break tried to take a course on computer but the course turns out to be too costly for me, so dat summer break i went to govt.cyber cafe( it is cheap ) taught myself how to use internet and all from scratch ... now got myself a lappy .. still learning.. cant finish learning too many things to learn and try out... :laugh: :dry:

taught myself mostly buuuuut used others guides primarily to begin to do so. So I figure it's a combo.

 

Now I'm engaging with others and trying to get active in the community since I'm pretty certain that will help.
