2. A flatbread product which is usually unleavened.

3. A computer adept who is proficient at breaking software protection schemata such as keycodes, firewalls, copy protection, login scripts, etc. and incorrectly used synonymously with 'hacker' which is in actuality a different type of individual altogether.

The word "Cracker" was coined in the south by white slave owners. Slave owning whites refered to non slave owning, or poor whites as "crackers." Although it is considered in this day and age to be derogitory word for whites, if you know the history behind the word it is actually a form of flattery.
"You ignorant cracker, the word didn't come from the sound of a whip!"

It's crackers to slip a rozzer the dropski in snide. (It's crazy to bribe a copper with counterfeit money.)

A device used to "crack" the seal on Nitrous cartridges for inhaling the N20 for a high. The cracker is commonly aluminum, brass or plastic and simply accepts a N20 cartridge (intended for dispensing whip-cream) and pierces the seal, allowing the gas to escape in a controlled fashion. A baloon is attached to the device to capture the gas and allow it to absorb enough heat to be inhaled safely.
Man don't try to suck it straight outta the cracker, your lips will freeze to it.

A computer expert who specialises in removing protection mechanisms from commercial software. These protections often limit (cripple) the software functionality or render the software unoperatable after a certain number of uses or when a expiry date is reached.
This activity is ilegal in many countries because it forces the software developers to increase the price of their products in order to recover lost revenue.
A cracker will usually have low level programming experience and a detailed technical understanding of commercial software protections.
Hardware protections are the best defence against crackers because they require great technical expertise to circumvent.

A cracker is a white person, generally southern and specifically Florida, southern Georgia and Southern alabama.
It is used to describe rural folk who homesteaded theses states and lived hard lives, in mostly agrarian roles. Cattle driving was one of their main occupations, the "Crack" of the Cattle,not slave whip (rarely did they own slaves, and were as poor as any slave) was from where they got their name. It is said the "crack" could be heard for nearly a mile. The name cracker was synonymous with thier food, architecture, way of making a living as well as the people themselves. Today the word is used to descibe any southern white person, mostly used in derogitory terms, as meaning rural poor country folk by those who could not be considered crackers. The term is not as negative as redneck or hick.
" That old old cracker house with a tin roof was preserved by the state as being historic"

"Cracker cooking consists of gator, swampcabbage and anything one can scrounge up"

"hey cracker, you best not be walking by yourself down that alley"
