Some years ago, I had exactly the same ideas, "the pursuit of knowledge",
"curiosity", "white hat hacker", etc. One boring holiday morning, I went to
uni and started "experimenting". I did this in all innocence I assure you, but

them of my innocence. In Australia there is a 2 year maximum jail sentence for
hacking and is considered serious offence. Scary!

mistakes. The idea of being a hacker is exciting (romantic even), but the
reality is terrible. Give it up. Play by the rules and nobody gets hurt.
