The hacker explores the intersection of art and science in an insatiable quest to understand and shape the world around him.
We guide you on this journey.
From www.hacker.org

Yesterday evening we achieved the 128 Challenges solved mark :-) Best challenges in this journey from the last Blog entry were 'Maeda Path', 'Tic Tac Blah', 'Secure Room', 'Broken keys', 'Immortal' and 'Train Wreck'.

The challenge which keeps resisting us is 'A life worth living'. The spartacusii server burnt while computing the Game of Life for this challenge. Or maybe it died due too a lightning tempest which occurred two days ago. Or it did too much BOINC computations. Also the router is playing strange: I get a red light on the Internet... It was a second hand computer anyway. Basically, to solve more quests, we are risking the best of our gears. Now, I will need to reenable the pico server which I did not operate to spare current (and money). I also have another old server ready for operations.

We are now ranked 516 on the hacker.org site and almost in the top 500. This evening, me and virus will go out for dinner to party this incredible achievement in our life :-)
