I have spent the day reading "The Atrocity Archives" by
Charles Stross. A nice bit of R and R as I waited for my hangover
to abate. One of the system administrators of a secret goverment
agancy that deals with the occult is allowed to go on active field
missions. The book had lots of nice computing terms for the geek
reader (not me of course).
In the after wood Charles claim that the hacker is the trickster
god in the realm of computing.
