AskApache.com won the contest for May! Thanks to all of you who voted for my site! Even though AskApache won the contest according to the rules, somehow they said I cheated by giving DreamHost too much free publicity and advertising. I love DreamHost!


From: DreamHost May 2007 Newsletter
######################################################################## 6. DHSOTM May's DreamHost Site of the Marmalade is somewhat a departure from our usual fare of flash portfolio/online radio winners. In fact, it's a bit of a controversial winner, because it's the first time I've ever seen a DHSOTM winner who on the front page has a HUGE logo for "Vote AskApache DreamHost Site of the Marmalade". Now, that sort of thing is highly frowned upon around here. You would never catch US stooping to such tactics just for the chance to win the authorization to put a smarmy gif on OUR web site. I'm THIS close to disallowing the whole thing, but I guess we'll let it slide this one time, as there is some pretty useful content over at: http://www.askapache.com/ and it's nice to go to a DHSOTM winner who's site doesn't make my PII 666Mhz Celeron dump core all over my broiled chicken salad without croutons. Er wait. I just found out he "won" not just by promoting the contest at his own site, but by putting direct links to the "vote" option at our discussion board and the wiki. DISALLOWED! The new winner is: http://www.hypercombofinish.com/ A weekly pixel art web comic generally dealing with video games. And I guess by weekly I mean, last updated December 27th, 2005! But hey, at least they're not shameless promoters! As long as you promise not to use cheesy (but delicious) tactics to pump up YOUR votes, submit your site any time you feel a bit peckish at: https://panel.dreamhost.com/?tree=home.dhsotm ######################################################################## Your Egg McMuffin Top, Josh Jones

Hacking and Hackers

The use of "hacker" to mean "security breaker" is a confusion on the part of the mass media. We hackers refuse to recognize that meaning, and continue using the word to mean someone who loves to program, someone who enjoys playful cleverness, or the combination of the two.
