I'd be more than happy to take you under my wing; answer any questions you have or whatever.

First thing, try not to think of it as "hacking", try to think of what it really is, is obsessive engineering. Whenever I see somebody calling themselves hackers, I think of it as arrogant.

Second, you need a cool head and an open-mind.

Third, figure out what branch of "obsessive engineering" you want to specialize in and set that as your primary goal. If you need a list, let me know.

Fourth, share your discoveries with others. :)

you can contact me via aim... i'm usually on. and everyone at binrev are all a great help.

He sure did. Everyone here will almost always be willing to lend a hand. Although by far not the most effecient in the art of Social Engineering, it's what I "specialize" in really. Persuasion stuff. So if you have any questions about that I'd be more than willing to help out. IM me or PM or whatever. Hit me up if you ever need help.

Wow, I got a lot of messages. :)

I have weird hours, so...

But they'll probably change considering I have a tutor next week.

People think 'hacking' starts with the computer and ends at the computer.
When really the name of the game is electronics, along with other specializations sprinkled in there. (not that they're insignifigant, but because sometimes there is a different type of element, usually human)

  • Reverse Engineer
  • Kernel 'hacker'
  • Phreak (telecommunications)
  • Electronic Engineering
  • Cryptology
  • Social Engineering
And thats just a short broad list...

I mean it's crazy.

You'll probably need some inspiration so check these sites out:

http://wandel.ca/ (check out his projects)
http://www.sentex.net/~mwandel/ (markus' brother, projects!)
http://www.stromcarlson.com/ (a local phreak' s site strom carlson, very very very good man)
http://www.howstuffworks.com/ (these guys are insane)
http://www.xenatera....ak/xboxmod.html (bunnie huang and his ee hacking the xbox project)
http://www.powerlabs.org/ (sam barros is... plasma boy!)
http://bofh.ntk.net/Bastard.html (unix\networking humor)
http://www.unconvent...t.com/index.php (interesting electronics with an airsoft based mindset)
http://www.bobblick....s/projects.html (lots of electronic projects)
http://www.angelfire...xmhz/index.html (yet more dozens of electronics projects!)
http://www.uoguelph....ets/gadgets.htm (RC mania)

the reason I don't have a lot of programming links is because it's like... programming is sort of like baking. it's simple... but yet it isn't. the yeast and the sugar and the ugh.

so u wanna learn a lil hacking? a good lesson would of been in upgrading that old pc you had to make it faster you could of learned many things there... hackers dont HACK just to hack.. well some do cuz they know what there doing but CURIOSITY motivates me and maybe many others.. i hack not becuase i want to but its a mentality ive built... when i want to learn about some thing i looked at it in a way to see its weak points and strong points and if i can exploit it or make it do what i want to.. for example right now im really interested in electronix and phreak boxes why becuase they interest me and plus the more knowledge the more power... so my advice to you is soke up as much knowledge as you can on what u want to learn.... :wacko: Omni-Max got any more hard ware hacking sites? :blink:

Nothing impressive, execpt that it uses a basic stamp to store all the played numbers, looks like it decodes caller ID tones or stores numbers.

I just stripped a load of 20 gauge 10 cm for breadboard jumpers.
Do yourself a favor. If you become a electronic hobbier, get yourself a breadboard and a set of automatic strippers.
