Other people: Hackers
On this page you will find some links to private pages of
people that I would qualify as hackers.
Famous for his involvement with the creation of C and Unix.
His web pages have a lot on the history of these.
Had one of the first hottubs and refridgerators hooked
on the internet. Also has a story on
CD-ROM's in the Microwave.
This man calls himself: "Engineer, mathematician, and programmer",
and wrote something
more than 30 years ago, which sound like it could have been written yesterday.
This simply shows that my ideas on The Art of Programming
are almost as old as I am myself.
Just read his stories on Software Engineering, and you know why it is here.
Wrote a funny C programs and Rubic Cube. Don't be so stupid
to email him, but click on one of the periods to get
to his home page.
Wrote some signature programs, such as
the maze generator
and the Yin-Yang logo.
On Tuesday, March 4, 1997, I
included an image from his home page in my online diary.
Although this great computer scientist probably will
not classify himself as a hacker, he is one of the
few who all one his own produced some of the most
amazing programs. Although it is theoretically impossible
to write bug free programs, his programs have set the
standard for what could be called "bug-free" programs.
He also is a Christian.
References to him on my pages:
He is not the evil hacker that many thought him to be. He
is very good at social engineering, a trait that not all
hackers are very good at.
A specialist on http daemons.
Car Speed Measurement Project
Author of STonX.
Check what he has hooked up to his computer.
Cracked the Dutch CD-phone guide (Dutch).

Wrote syn68k, which is the core of ARDI's Executor in about six weeks.
Is decoding the Timex Datalink Protocol.
His home page consist of an archive of his papers, covering many
areas within computer science. The titles of these papers give
me the impression he is a real hacker.
His homepage bears the name Shaggy. He is doing some interesting
research Dynamic Encapsulation of C++ Objects, and wrote
some Shagware software, including several operating systems and
a C++ parser.
Author of the Wily editor environment.
He describes himself as: part engineer, part musician, part computer nerd
(real men type their HTML by hand), part computer artist, and part silly guy.
(The exact proportions change daily!)
Worked with DEC, wrote some interesting papers. He also
wrote a TECO macro
for calculating pi.
Nathan holds some patents related to CPU design, and maintains the
Uncle Nate's Problem Page. He also gives some
that he is a looney programmer. (I am convinced.)
His homepage is completely devoted on the C compiler he has been working
on together with Keith Walker (his brother, I presume).
He is one of the founders of AutoDesk (?), and his pages contain a wealth
of all kinds of pieces of software and texts he (?) wrote.
