The activity of looking through garbage to find useful items or food. Dumpster diving can be done anywhere there are dumpsters or garbage cans. Residential diving is usually done in a suburbs (but it's best done in rich neighborhoods). Retail diving is usually done at stores. Corporate diving, if I remember correctly, is done outside office buildings, and I can't remember what industrial diving is (use a search engine).
John: Last night I went dumpster diving.
Bill: Find anything?
John: Yeah, this CD player and a PS2 controller.
Bill: The things people throw away....
1.) Racial slur for a white person. While it should be considered just as bad as the n-word it isn't (just like like a man can be sexist but a woman can't). This term is often used to describe white trash.
2.) Opposite of a hacker. Crackers cause mayhem and destruction while hackers try to learn more about how things work, to push the limitations of computers and such, etc. The media doesn't know the difference.
1.) You cracker white trash.
2.)That dude is a cracker. He's taken down four websites this week and I think he gave my computer a keylogger.
A large dumpster that some stores use instead of regular dumpsters. Items are sent down a chute and then crushed. This way more garbage is storable, and so more stores are starting to use them. A compactor is also a dumpster diver's arch enemy.
