Hey,
I am 14 years old.
Live in the USA.
I first started to get interested in computers when i was 6, when i was 9 i started to learn HTML and CSS and created my first working web-page, At 11 i got into programming and currently i am learning C++ ( if anyone can help me with pointers i am having troble learning that :| , please PM me). And i am trying to learn "Networking", which isn't going so well . lol
I have been with HTS for 1-2 years now, and find it a great training place. ( it has taught me, along with the community, to figure it out on your own and try everything possible) ( I give thanks to all those people )
I do not stay on the computer all day!
I like to Mess around with Photoshop and Blender.
I like to swim, run, surf, hike, bike, and do Ju-Jistsu.
Hmmm thats about it oh and i "hack" because it is fun. :D
...oh and i have never got caught doing illegal hacking. ( didn't tell anyone, and it was a simple login for my middle school )

Hi im 21
i work as a technician for BMW, (i work on cars) which is more involved with networking and computers than you might think.

im here to learn and visit this site every once in a while when i get the bug to learn more about hacking. im a pretty diverse person and into a lot of things, as i have found most of the people here are. i enjoy bboying, music, cars, computers, guns, politics, outdoors, indoors, city life, country life etc.

i want to learn computers inside and out and gain a full understanding of as much as i can. i tent to suffer from a little ADD at times and have a hard time focusing on one thing for long (for example learning a programming language lol) but i have gone out and got a few books on c++ and VB and am trying to make myself learn. so far HTS has been a big help!

just wanting to learn out how basic programs work and are written, i was looking at this site and tried a couple of the begginer tests, i was wondering how long it takes somebody learning source code, or a password look up in the source codes...the first time they try?

Introduzione

Hola. Ich suis "ahimsa".

I am reasonably new to the a(c/r)t of hacking, but not wholly without knowledge. For a long time, I have been in playing around with the romantics of the notion of a cyberpunk. Archetypal theatrics and soforth.

Then I saw a word. A portmanteau, to offer precision, and one of great beauty. "Hacktivist".

Previously, I had some fantasy of rebellion of some sort. "Black Hat"/"White Hat" were terms I knew. I never knew exactly what my alignment might be on this two dimension spectrum, but then I learn of Hacktivism, and the morality of the situation was clear. My path was clear.

I have taken up the practice quite seriously. Theatrics is something I pride my self on, and in dramatic fashion I am born today. I feel as though I have melted away from nationality, age, sex, location, body, and become something more abstract.

Tag. Je am "ahimsa".

MAY WE CONTACT YOUR CURRENT EMPLOYER?: If I had one, would I be here?

DO YOU HAVE ANY PHYSICAL CONDITIONS THAT WOULD PROHIBIT YOU FROM LIFTING UP TO 50 LBS?: Of what?

DO YOU SMOKE?: On the job no, on my breaks yes.

WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO BE DOING IN FIVE YEARS?: Living in the Bahamas with a fabulously wealthy dumb sexy blonde super model who thinks I'm the greatest thing since sliced bread. Actually, I'd like to be doing that now.

Hello!

I work 45 hrs a week helping to fix military computers.
I have been involved in the IT industry for about 8 months now, and i love it.
I have learned 90% of all my computer knowledge on the job so to speak.
I started hacking 2 days ago (28th June '08) and i love this too! :D

hackthissite.org is in my opinion the 3rd best site on the internet (following the microsoft virtual labs and google), and i have learned a WHOLE lot already from it.

Please keep up the good work. When i have some cash i will donate (im sure you hear that a lot, i will endevour to keep my word), as this site could be the breeding ground for the next generation of pen-testers, cryptographers and other security bods!

Jon

Of course I copied it, plagiarism it's what all those Bangladeshi guys are doing, they know the answers to the CCNA exam before they've even sat the paper. . and how google. . Here's what pisses me off, I've been applying with my REAL C.V for ICT support desk jobs for over 5 years ever since I left college one step away from obtaining my degree, know what these I.T recruitment people keep telling me. .

After reviewing your C.V we feel you need more experience. . More experiance!! WTF!

AND HOW DO I GAIN THAT IF YOU DON'T HIRE ME IN THE FIRST PLACE YOU RETARD!

So I joined Sub7Seven, joined the UHA (united hackers association), joined Shadow-Server and even took the time to join the good old !HTS, sat their and wrote and reverse engineered tons of programs, coded the odd bit of malware right off the bat (pardon the pun), produced tons of websites with Java, Shock-wave, Dream-Weaver, CSS, PHP.

And I need more experience!!! These I.T monkeys and there obvious love of people with an MCSE certification really say the most charming of things. . Yes, you clutch onto your piece of paper and only hire people with a track record of being a Micro$haft stool pigeon and I'll stick to doing what I do best! :twisted:

At least when people call me up and they need help with their computer they don't get re-routed to a call centre in India. . .

"Cat 5, what is, I am not understanding you sir!" :shock:

Here's a course I am now attending funded by the Government as I am unemployed at present, just listen to this;

Learn about I.T, Computers, the Internet
Assess your Level of Literacy and Numeracy
Improve your English, Speaking, Listening and Reading (WTF!!)
Business and Management Courses
Multimedia and Specialist ICT Courses.

'You'll be using computers and the Internet. Now that might seem scary at first but we can show you what to do and help you get started' - (Yeah another huge waste of my time, the only thing I want off you is the god damn piece of paper!)

With all due respect they wouldn't recognise a specialist if he came up and took a big bite out of something they would miss! :geek:

I love their definition that the internet and computers are scary, yes they are, to people that are as thick as pig ****!

Must be because of all those hackers out there. . :lol:

Jon, your lucky, I cant even get in the damn I.T door, not for the want of trying mind. I sent out 8 CV's today, but because I left college and fell in with agencies doing manual labour, they just see LABOURER on my CV and presume I have no I.T knowledge or customer services experiance.

More experiance, to a bloke whos been heavily involved with the H/P/V/C/A since the age of 17 and whos now turning 33, thats an insult. Perhaps it because I dont mention hacking on my CV out of principal, perhaps I should change it to give me a job or your network is going to turn into a hacker disk-o party, disk = 0 get it. (snicker) :P

Here's what it's all about;

A good example is "8 years experience in Project Management and Business Analysis within Finance and Telecommunications, backed by a 1st class degree and MSc."

This is what they have on their site. . 1st Class Degree, I see, so what their saying is University Graduates ONLY, the kids that hang around on campus smoking dope and have long hair and no real goal in life.

The same crowd that struggled to find something worthwhile to put into a thesis to try and impress there lecturers and peers. . .

So in other word's no first class degree we don't want to know. . .

Regardless of your actual hands on experience, we prefer people with absolutely no commercial experience what so ever. . .

Theres another (dot) com that's soon going to become another (dot) gone! :ugeek:

Their not really asking for much are they, master's of science degree, as if a bachelor of science is no good. Well how about this, no degree, no piece of paper, just a burning driving passion to be exceptionally good and excel above the mediocre idiots who hide behind that bit of paper. :roll:

Assiduus usus uni rei deditus et ingenium et artem saepe vincit - Constant practice devoted to one subject often outdues both intelligence and skill. (Cicero)

For the record the only person with a Degree that springs to my mind is Henry William Gates the third.

Its a bit rich of them to expect one from a guy who wants to work on a I.T or ICT HelpDesk.
