h4x0r h4ndb00kabout the author

hello, my name is tapeworm, and i am a freelance contract hacker amongst other things. the first thing i ever learned about computers (when i was first introduced by a friend) was the wide variety of hacking programs floating around on the internet, it wasn't long after that my mom brought home our first computer and i took immediate control. i just wanted to research information, build web pages and play in chat rooms; whereas my mother just wanted to sit and play solitaire for hours (obsessive gaming: a geek at heart). i needed a plan, and fast.

i started coming up with ways to make it appear as though things were wrong with the computer, then she would leave and tell me to fix it. every time she would have me fix something when there was nothing actually wrong, i'd get at least a couple extra hours of playtime. i got better over time, and before i knew it i no longer had a social life.

my evil plans were eventually foiled when she was re-married to an electrician, but luckily by that time i had my own computer anyway. currently i contribute my free time to the open-source community, and i can be reached by my leet e-mail address at: worm@icodeviruses.com
