    Man, this thing is ancient! I remember reading it when I was first getting into the internet and just laughing at how silly it is. Does anyone know if this was serious or someone's idea of a joke? I'm sure many parents actually took this seriously... still an interesting read.

    I have never seen this before and it was a interesting read.

    I seriously scared that this could of been a real situation.

    I remember as a kid back in the 80's convincing my grandfather that I'd hacked into Barclays using my ZX spectrum. It was just after watching wargames on TV, so he wasn't put off by the fact that I didn't have a modem or anything like that.

    He almost called the police...

    I agree.

    I'd rather have my kid spend hours coding in C# out of boredom than boy-racing with underage chicks on board.
