**hacker: n. (originally, someone who makes furniture with an axe). A
person who enjoys exploring the details of programmable systems and
how to stretch their capabilities... RFC1392, the Internet Users'
Glossary, usefully amplifies this as: A person who delights in having
an intimate understanding of the internal workings of a system ... An
expert or enthusiast of any kind. (source:
