Contrary to popular belief, a "Hacker" is not actually someone who illegally breaks into someone else's computer. A "Hacker" is namely someone who enjoys computers.

"Someone who illegally breaks into someone else's computer":

This is called a "Cracker"

Using a Secure Browser

Using a secure web browser is important, well all want to be safe especially on the internet. For most of my life I have been using the basic "Blue 'e' ". Internet Explorer however, has become one of the lesser browsers. It's slow and doesn't offer very many features. Then comes Google's prestigious Chrome the (so called and yet to be proven wrong) fastest browser ever. Then there's Mozilla's Firefox, now for it ability to be customized. With hundred of extensions for this browser you can be almost invisible on the internet. You can block trackers, destroy those annoying cookies, and have some fun while you're at at it. If you're looking for a secure browser Firefox is best way to go.

(Check out the Links and Resources page for a link to Mozilla's site)

Another Thing About Emulators

Forgot to add this:

Be careful where you download ROM's and ISO. If you get some weird malware or virus, don't say you weren't warned...

I good place to get ROM's, ISO's and Emulators is a site called:

Also make sure you have a security program before you download stuff. Norton is the best if you can cough up $100. But there are multiple free security program out there also.

This post is for those of you who were alive when you could finally go and by a system that would play video games. It is also for those of you who weren't born until these systems were really advanced and considered a common thing.

The Emulator

Lets start with a little story...

You're standing there, looking off into space(maybe picking your nose), and you hear someone start talking about some old video game you've never heard of. You go home and you look it up. You read a whole article about how this is the best game ever, you get that feeling like you just have to play this game, and then, you find out that it came out 20 years ago and you don't have the console that it came out for anyways. You drag your self into bed and you mope until 12:00 at night.

Then a magical thing happens, you find out about emulators!

You can now play any game you want that isn't being soled in stores anymore!

But I'm getting ahead of myself, you don't even know what an emulator is!

An emulator is a program, okay that's really vague. An emulator is a program the reads ROM's or ISO's. What is as ROM, What is an ISO? Well a ROM or ISO is basically the game in the form of a computer file. So know, you have the ability to play that awesome game right on you're computer. Any game you can think of from your childhood is most likely available on the Internet!

You're probably thinking "Wait, isn't this illegal?". Well, if you were to sell a ROM or ISO, yes it would be. But since nobody is selling the ROM or ISO, the company who was selling it, isn't anymore, nobody is making any money and the company is totally fine with it, it is not illegal.

But if you get in trouble for some weird reason, (I don't know if you states has some law against it or not) I'm not responsible. But please don't let this discourage you! Just use good judgement, go with your gut, and pray for legalness.
