Your Username

How did y'all go about coming up with your username? There are (quite) a few out here that just confuse me. Also, if it isn't too much trouble, could y'all give a rebus or some way so we know how to pronounce your names (zachninme)? I got mine from back in 6th grade - my nickname was "Double Stuffed Oreo" (because I am a bit hefty), but everyone who doesn't know me just calls me "Redneck", so I combined the two. I've been using it ever since. So, how about y'all?

My username (BonemanX3) was created cause' at the time I made my account I was very much into paleontology (fossil hunting). Though now I want to change it.

I like and use Linux, and I like to hack things (physically, not all the computer crap)
and I like tinkering, but I don't hack linux.... (its impossible!)
BTW, h4x0r = hacker

The box said Vista or BETTER, so I Installed LINUX!!!!!!!!
I never feel safe, just less paraniod :P
Well, like the "man" said, if we feel that it is safe because one needs physical access to a machine, that is no longer very difficult anymore either. Especially for the Gov-ment
i actually do feel safe if someone breaks into my home i'd have more important things than security of my pc to worry about my login password on the computer is weak and password free login is enabled anyway. but remote login is blocked completely i dont like to protect stuff from myself i always leave a way for me to get into the house without key and without damage. its proven to make more good than harm (actually no harm untill now and countless times when it rescued me)
Listen to the podcast if you get a chance, it isn't thieves you have to worry about, it is the Authorities.

my login password on the computer is weak and password free login is enabled anyway. but remote login is blocked completely

That is defeatable....by those in the know. Check out the Audio presentation from LastHope be patient, it is long, with a LOT of introduction...

Thanks for the <bump>, Goodhart!

Wait a minute...Linux is a hack! The whole point of Linux is that the entire operating system, including the kernel, is open source. You can go in and modify it to your heart's content, no reverse engineering required. Hacking Linux isn't just "not impossible," it's really easy ;-)

The key feature is that if someone did try to hack the kernel and make a distro, the distribution groups would catch and kill it pretty quickly.
By definition a hack is making something do something it shouldn't, but linux should be hacked so it can't be! (anomalie!)
