    Ughh… this is probably why I don’t have any hacker friends. So many of you hacking and computer-savvy commenters are saying the questions asked here were so stupid, dumb, and basic. Guys… calm tf down! Not everyone knows what you know about computers and virtual security. I find a lot of other IT people I’ve met are like this too. I know a ton about cars, but I’m not gonna call someone dumb for not knowing that it’s normal for their brakes to squeak after sitting in the rain.

    She hates C# because she knows more than the common programmer. C#’s garbage collector is… garbage, and can be hijacked. Also, it’s made by Microsoft, and relies on the .NET framework. The .NET framework itself has known vulnerabilities.

    The desk looks like Elle Woods’ going through a bit of a goth phase.

    “So when you do do an upgrade, you have to shut down the system for a while…” ahhhh but that’s why everyone uses Linux servers instead of windows servers.

  29. JUNIOR J on March 24, 2020 at 11:01 am

    Whoever decided to mismatch hot pink and pastel pink should be tied up with a hose and tossed off a roof.

    Somehow finding a hacking mentor online seems like a bad idea.

  35. Quinton Nam on March 24, 2020 at 11:10 am

    She’s smart hot and hilarious, shes really and truly the full package!

  36. Septimus Signus on March 24, 2020 at 11:10 am

    its easier to hack a mac that a windows pc, because of 1 reason. Windows have had more attacks than mac and there for have been able to close more holes that they otherwise wouldnt have known about.

  37. Erik Brandt on March 24, 2020 at 11:10 am
