Pity. I might be almost 40 but if I had the technical know how I'd definitely actively support Anonymous.
It sucks being an old man (relatively). Lol.

No it doesn't suck being old, I'm 43 shy of a week. I got my first computer when I was 16. My first modem was a 300 baud RS-232. I come from
pre-internet days, when all you had were BBSs and speed dialers. Being older gives me the wisdom to never talk about the things I did with Eagleterm
and Aceterm, especially not on a conspiracy website that won't allow you to talk about hacking.
There will be no tutorials posted here today, nor ever, and especially not by me. Hehehe.
I did do a check a while back, and there are still BBSs in existence. Still running in ASCII mode. I was amazed. Technology has changed, but the
fundamental principles are still the same. In fact, I'd say that most networks have been layered upon the older ones, one protocol riding on top of
another one, much like an onion. The information is "out there", cue the x-files background music, and go hunt for it if you want to learn.
I've heard that anon is a bunch of script kiddies. If they are, and if my research is correct, then they have found the information most people have
no clue about. So that makes them a bunch of smart script kiddies, with powerful tools, knowledge of how the internet actually works, but no wisdom
how to exploit it properly. They learned to play, but are playing with a loaded weapon.
All I can do is watch it unfold.
And yes, I am a pacifist. Make love, not war.
