waiting for your guidance
19 February 2006
This arrived at my inbox a couple of days ago:

At least he wants to learn, but what an (pardon my french) stupid way of asking. Why not try to read something like a book or a webpage/article about hacking.
Perhaps it's cultural thing. Or a social thing maybe, similar to what you say to someone who speaks a different and interesting language "If you teach me Swahilii, I'll teach you Swedish". But that's just a manner of speech.
By posting about this, guys in India, please keep sending these funny emails. Sorry for not replying to any of them. I particulary enjoy those who think I'm a kung fu master and that I can teach them kung fu via email.
