Hack (v.) -

In graffiti terms, to hack is to take either a pen, pencil, or marker and draw a clear line through another's hard work. Why one might choose to hack another's art is usually justified because the artwork was tagged by an opposing artist or personal rival. In some cases, the art just might not appeal to the "hacker" for numerous reasons.
"Can you hack that throw up over there on that wall next to the street lamp?"

"Wait. Why?"

"No reason. It's just that Paul made it; you know how he pisses me off."

Someone who sends great music occasionally to their best friends, likes to eat pizza especially from sorrentos, loves video chatting, gives HUGE ducks as presents. They are usually awesome, incredible, so much fun to hang out with. They will try to deny it but don't listen to them because they are SO COOL.

v.

1. To program a computer in a clever, virtuosic, and wizardly manner. Ordinary computer jockeys merely write programs; hacking is the domain of digital poets. Hacking is a subtle and arguably mystical art, equal parts wit and technical ability, that is rarely appreciated by non-hackers. See hacker.

2. To break into computer systems with malicious intent. This sense of the term is the one that is most commonly heard in the media, although sense 1 is much more faithful to its original meaning. Contrary to popular misconception, this sort of hacking rarely requires cleverness or exceptional technical ability; most so-called "black hat" hackers rely on brute force techniques or exploit known weaknesses and the incompetence of system administrators.

3. To jury-rig or improvise something inelegant but effective, usually as a temporary solution to a problem. See noun sense 2.

n.

1. A clever or elegant technical accomplishment, especially one with a playful or prankish bent. A clever routine in a computer program, especially one which uses tools for purposes other than those for which they were intended, might be considered a hack. Students at technical universities, such as MIT, are famous for performing elaborate hacks, such as disassembling the dean's car and then reassembling it inside his house, or turning a fourteen-story building into a giant Tetris game by placing computer-controlled lighting panels in its windows.

2. A temporary, jury-rigged solution, especially in the fields of computer programming and engineering: the technical equivalent of chewing gum and duct tape. Compare to kludge.

3. A cheap, mediocre, or second-rate practitioner, especially in the fields of journalism and literature: a charlatan or incompetent.
v1. I stayed up all night hacking, and when I finally looked out the window, it was 8am.

v2. Some script kiddie hacked into the web server and trashed the database.

v3. I didn't have time to do things properly, so I just hacked together something that worked.

n1. A computerized bartender that automatically mixes your drinks and debits your account? Now THAT'S a hack.

n2. This subroutine is just a hack; I'm going to go back and put some real code in later.

n3. That two-bit pulp writer? Ah, he's nothing but a hack.
