Red Bat--The Halloween Edition. The only distribution with a SUI (spooky user interface). Voted most popular distribution in Transylvania. Distributed under the GNU ("Goblins, Newts and Undertakers") Public License. Featured packages:

(For those who didn't get the "bob" joke, Microsoft Bob was a "family-oriented interface for Microsoft Windows" that utterly failed in the marketplace. The pages are gone from Microsoft's web site, but here's a product summary from a third-party sales site and a Canadian prelaunch announcement.)

Not The Answer Gang


Help me crack my school

Answered By Iron, Heather Stern

just wondering how I can get into my schools computer? Its not like I am going to do anything with it but I was just wondering if there is a way to hack into the network system and well u know....

If you read past issues of The Answer Gang, you'll see that we do not offer help for cracking networks. But you will find much of entertainment, and may learn a thing or two about Linux.

If you type "hack,hacking,hacker" (that's "hack OR hacking OR hacker") in the LG search engine, you will see several articles about hacking. [Note: the search engine was changed after this was written, and comma-OR no longer works.] But you will discover that the word has a different meaning than how you are using it. Hacking means spending long hours at the computer doing trial-and-error experiments, and making new discoveries about how the system works or creating new generally-useful programs. Breaking into somebody else's computer is a whole different activity, and the term for this is "cracking".

Of course if you're in the US, there's a bill in Congress now that would equate cracking with terrorism and land you life in prison.

Wait for the teacher to let you into class, turn it on, then wait for him or her to tell you all the class login ID.
Its not like I am going to do anything with it but I was just wondering
...why I paid so much for community college (gosh I could go to the movies a few times or buy some great clothes) when I hate computers, but then I remember someone saying there's a bunch of money in computers, so I really ought to get into one.
if there is a way to hack into the network system and well u know....
After I get all the money out of this computer I plan to shake any loose change out of that ethernet hub too.

Not much Linux content, though.

Unless we can transmute our daemon processes into vampires by attaching those fangs to them.

Happy Linuxing!
