Script Kiddies & Jesus
[SLDAdmin: the link should be fixed now (the original one got slashdotted, sorry).]
And now for something completely different, I offer this: the account of a who's not the sharpest tack in the box. I'm not sure if non-geek types will understand this, but anyone semi-technical should find it hilarious. (Just in case you're confused: 127.0.0.1 is always the address for 'your own machine'...attack that address and you are attacking yourself. A hacker who doesn't know this isn't much of a hacker, eh?)
So how does this connect to the Gospel? Well, it goes to show that there is still justice in this world - after all, who doesn't like to see the self-righteous pricks get what they deserve?
On the other hand, it's a little sobering to think that Jesus loves dumb-as-rocks people like this just as much as he loves piously-nice-and-intelligent people like you and me. And there's a part of me that doesn't really like that.
It's always interesting to see who we identify with in stories like this. I wonder how many of us are really that different from this guy who confidently (yet stupidly) shoots himself in the foot.
After all, we do the same thing with God all the time...
