It's been a boring saturday afternoon so far..
I figured I'd just bother you all with an analogy I used a while back to explain the cracking scene to someone.
Nice analogy KW- :P //me likes your posts, always interesting :)
Well I don't entirely agree ;) It is my opinion that when someone finds an interested in software reversing or reversing of any type.. they then become a cracker or hacker of that topic as the word might be different for such things as xbox reversing or phreaking. it is at this point that +ORC taught that a reversers could change the crackers into reversers. I'm not sure i believe that.. some people are really just the hobbyist type, they aren't interested in getting any deeper.. so for me i see three types of people..
1. crackers who are just doing it for a hobby while in a teenage rebelious state and once matured will leave the scene (this is the typical stereotype of the rest of the world)
2. crackers who attain certain understanding and maturity in their life during their cracking career, thus reaching a level from which they can be "enlightened" under +ORC's ideals.. by others teachings. *note* these peple could very well become just as good of reversers as the rest.
3. reversers who have always reversed things from a very young age, not taken things for granted and not taken the word of people they trust, but always looking and checking up on things to see how they really work. Always having a keen interest in learning that which is not taught.
Also note. you might be thinking well what about the crackers who are always crackers.. think of those people long and hard.. and you will know that they won't and they'll tell you they won't be cracking after they are 50 with a family.. look at all the crackers of 86' 87' and 88' etc..
Fabulous Furlough, and all the Classic guys etc.. none of them are around anymore, except a couple i've seen but they do svcd cause they aren't interested in anything but leech..
Thats my 2 cents ;)
Devine Right [RET]
SOME of us are still around. I still do reversing from time to time. I've enjoyed the tuts on Fravia's site as much as the next guy!
It's been quite a trek.
I've reversed on the C-64, Amiga, PC, Z-80 based POS Terminal, Z-80 based arcade game board, Palm Pilot, SGI, and probably some that I've forgotten.
As I tell people, some people work crossword puzzles, I reverse software.
Well if it is you, it's great to see you around again FabulousFurlough. THG was a long time ago ;)
