Tales from the front ...


Ladies and gentlemen ... the world's dumbest "hacker".

This is pretty funny. A self-proclaimed "computer whiz" got pissed off about being kicked from an IRC channel (for being an arsehole, of course). He comes back to the channel threatening to "hack" the IRC operator's machine, claiming that he can prove his Awesome Computer Skill if only the operator will have the balls to reveal his IP address. The operator, without missing a beat, gives him the address of 127.0.0.1 and dares the arsehole to do his worst.

Readers who may have actual lives away from the keyboard (unlike me) are invited to do a bit of on-line research on the meaning of IP address 127.0.0.1 to get the full effect of the mirth here. HINT: I have a t-shirt that says "There's no place like 127.0.0.1" ...
