A really crappy movie with Angelina Jolie where a bunch of wannabe hackers go around on rollerblades and connect their laptops to phoneboxes.
Probably the worst movie ever along with tomb raider.
WarGames is a really good computer based movie!

Seen at the top of the technological heirarchy, a person fully capable of using a computer to the fullest extent, and knows at least three programming languages without having to refer back to a tutorial, and has done at least one recognizable thing with them.

Not to be confused with cracker. While a hacker may have the capacity to gain unauthorized access to a computer, he/she will only do it to expand the boundaries of knowledge and promote virtue, while a cracker will destroy the results of a hacker.

It is unorthodox to consider yourself to be a hacker, rather than be considered a hacker by other hackers.

Back in the 70's, hacker was a term given to those fortunate enough to know how to code. During the 80's and 90's it was a term meant for those who worked their way through systems, without approval. Now, its meaning has been completely replaced by cracker, and hacker means nothing more than any idiot that can decipher a small page of HTML. Those who are computer illiterate still widely use the word in its 80s/90s sense. Not to be confused with hax0r, meaning a person who dreams to one day know how to hack, or another name for l337sp33k.
Of the 80s/90s version, there were three primary denominations:
The casual Hacker-hacks to learn information for his own curiosity.
The White Hat Hacker-hunts down and destroys malicious code.
The Black Hat Hacker-designs and releases malicious code;gathers dangerous information;brings down sensative systems.
"The hackers are working very hard."
"The hackers have managed to find their way into the system."
"The hackers are getting on my nerves."
