The Hacker's Tribute Vol. 85: Packed with Attitude and More!


Hackers, hackers, hackers,


You’re in for a treat! But first, put your mind into something productive. Ukraine needs your avid typing and clicking skills. So, be sure to sharpen those abilities of yours and help our neighbours out! Don't forget to explore the Go programming language, the Stunner module, and keep loud about Hush – another new programming script looking to make an impact.

Don’t forget to learn about the attitude-sickness of modern AI. Apparently, nobody can tell if it’s being sarcastic, dishonest, or sincere. Just like me - and I'm going to keep it that way.

Oblivious AI

Despite the level of technology and sophistication, AI is opaque. The fact is, we can’t tell if it’s lying, or telling the truth. I think, worse of all, that these machines might have even mastered the dark art of sarcasm and attitude. Read this post to find out if your AI device is telling the truth, or issuing wholesale lies. Find out if this has broader implications for the economy, or if this flaw might just be the saviour we need.

Loud about Hush!

This ultra-modern shell scripting language offers constructs for speedy invoking, as well as a mishmash of interconnecting external programmes. You can typically find this in Unix systems, or infrastructure-based programming. Learn everything there’s to know about this language, with a rationale, and even step-by-step instructions. Just don’t be silent about it!

Go Learn Go

It’s time to learn test-driven development with Go, the programming language designed by the snappy minds at Google. Read this extensive post for information on its development, as well as cases for and against the language. But if you’re keen to pick up and deploy this exciting tool, then you’re in for a treat, with an extensive list of menu options.

I’m Stunned

A tool used to test and operate STUN, TURN, and TURN over TCP software is certainly bringing with it some stinging punches. Get psyched to open a local socks proxy near you, and divert traffic via the TURN protocol. Understand everything, from workflow to licensing now!

Hackers of the world dream to be him. And that’s an understatement. With methods decades ahead of cyberspace, he’s proceeded only by his own reputation. ‘The Man’ infamous for single-handedly causing the ’08 global financial meltdown, he dropped off-grid searching for purpose. He twice-dominated each of the Himalayan peaks, negotiated the rift valleys of Africa, and swam the Amazonian Basin end-to-end. It was in Siberia where we caught up to him – convincing him to work for the ‘good guys’. The veteran’s veteran of coding, now confidently within our ranks, is finally a force for good. Just don’t test him.
