DID YOU KNOW?

The term "hacker" originated at MIT back in the 1960s? It's used to describe skilled people who practiced hardcore programming. In FORTRAN and other older languages. These so-called hackers are intelligent people who strive to seek more knowledge. They are the real pioneers of true hackers today. People viewed the term hacker as a positive label slapped onto computer gurus. People who could push computer systems beyond the defined limits. Hackers emerged out of the artificial intelligence labs at MIT in the 1960s. The Department of Defense founded a network known as ARPANET. It was as a means to link government offices. In time though, it evolved into what is today known as the Internet.

Hackers have developed methods to exploit security holes in various computer systems. The reason behind this was not to cause harm but encourage better and more secure systems. This did not stop people from viewing it in a negative way. Hackers and hacks by extension are still viewed in a negative light even today. They do have their fair share of fans though such as with gamers. Game mods are popular that adds new functionality or content to existing games. That is why mod managers became popular to help gamers keep track of everything and have them in one place.
