• Not only is this test a veritable compendium of fact and folklore about computer hackerdom, it's also a fun test to do with your friends. Get together in a room with them, and have them laugh with you. Or at you.

    This test is based on the original 500 point hacker purity test by Felix Lee, John Hayes, and Angela Thomas. It has, however, been revised such that it reflects a more modern era of computing, while still retaining some hint of nostalgia.

    Find out how much of a hacker you really are. Or use it as a checklist of geeky things you ought to do.
