Most of us don't call ourselfs 'Hackers' directly, but we are recognized by
our peers and people alike if they see user for whom we truely are and know
what a true hacker is. We make use of what we have and love what we do.
There are alot of hackers out there, but in these times, do we still call
ourselfs hackers?!? Do we still use the title or feer rejection or possible
unemployment if the company(s) we work for find out we're hackers?!?

I work at the Airport for a International company and having skills to
problem solve and think outside of the box, helps alot in that enviroment,
and of cource, working at an airport and being a hacker has its perks! hehe
