I have to admit, I'm still confused about the distinction between hackers
and crackers. All that Zen stuff about what Hackers do really didn't say
anything IMHO. What do they do? Most of what was described, e.g., solving
problems, coding challenges, are the kinds of things I do every day. So am I
a hacker? Is a hacker just a coder/programmer who likes challenges? Or a
particularly adept programmer?
