Hack On

HHack On

Hacking term has always been kinda misleading. Usually, people take it for cracking into someone’s network or spooking a unusually impossible dialog box in someone’s system mysteriously from a dark room somewhere in some garage 😛 Well, I would like say, that’s not true. 🙂
A hacker is someone who loves to program or who enjoys playful cleverness, or a combination of the two. The act of engaging in activities (such as programming or other media) in a spirit of playfulness and exploration is termed hacking. However the defining characteristic of a hacker is not the activities performed themselves (e.g. programming), but the manner in which it is done: Hacking entails some form of excellence, for example exploring the limits of what is possible, thereby doing something exciting and meaningful.

In modern computing terminology, a kludge (or often a “hack“) is a solution to a problem, doing a task, or fixing a system that is inefficient, inelegant, or even unfathomable, but which nevertheless (more or less) works. To kludge around something is to avoid a bug or some difficult condition by building a kludge, perhaps relying on properties of the bug itself to assure proper operation. It is somewhat similar in spirit to a workaround, only without the grace. A kludge is often used to change the behavior of a system after it is finished, without having to make fundamental changes. Sometimes the kludge is introduced in order to keep backwards compatibility, but often it is simply introduced because the kludge is an easier alternative. That something was often originally a crock, which is why it must now be hacked to make it work. A hack might be a kludge, but that ‘hack’ could be, at least in computing, ironic praise, for a quick fix solution to a frustrating problem.

That said, it doesn’t mean that the guy sitting in the dark room and cracking into some network ain’t called hacker 😛 That would definitely be an insult to his talent. 😉 But then the term cracker and hacker is entirely different. Anyways, I ain’t that dark room guy 😛 so you’ll can relax 😀 
So, I’ll be posting on tricks to get through few stuffs that you come across in your daily life and keep wondering “how to” 😉

Stand by.. 😉
