Yeah, ok, this isn't my usual fare on this blog, but I just finished watching my newly-acquired WarGames DVD. I'm astounded at how well this movie holds up two decades after it's original release. Soviet era FUD aside, you could almost shoot the same script today. The computers would be smaller (no 8" IMSAI floppy drives) but hacking really hasn't evolved as much as you might think. We still use war dialers to find rogue modem lines, and people still use weak, guessable passwords for important accounts.

Ok, I'm off the soapbox now. I love this movie...
