The concept of hacking always sounds a lot cooler than the reality. Sunday when a German hacker group rerouted the DNS of several hosting companies to their website, we all got to see their incredible hacking skills. Too bad that didn’t translate to decent web design, what they were so eager to show off to half the United States turned out to be the equivalent of 1995 Geocities website about Star Trek fanzines. It took about a day to get that nastiness over with and in the meantime I had no access to the site. I’m now a little bit behind in scanning in new strips and am not pleased. Again, the reality of hacking: in the movies they’re breaking into systems to find critical information, in life, they’re displaying flashing neon gifs. Whee.
