I had a dream last night that I was sitting at a desk with a lot of old DOSsy-looking computer terminals on it and I didn't really know what I was doing but it was clear from the plot of the dream that I was trying to hack into some other systems somewhere. (this is the synergy of having watched Wargames last week and read an article about Shodan yesterday) I managed to actually get into something, although I wasn't sure what it was and I had no idea how I actually broke into it at all. I only had an opportunity to get mildly excited about my success before another hacker - or maybe the system administrator, playing the part of a hacker - started shooting insults and threats all over my screen. I wasn't too concerned because I figured I was reasonably untraceable, but then I started receiving emails with the same sort of unpleasant content and this made me start to doubt that I was going to get away with it - whatever it was that I was doing.
