How an inmate hacker turned a prison upside down – The Verge →

A story of how some prison inmates re-assembled recycled computer parts, tucked away a computer in a ceiling, and hacked a network to run some illegal activities and how they were caught.

Reminds me of a time about 20 years ago, back in high school, where my best friend and I convinced one of our favorite teachers to allow us to piece together a Linux server using recycled computer parts, tuck the server away in the back corner of the library, give us access to the school’s T1 lines, and run our own file, FTP, HTTP, IRC bot(s), and Quake server.
