An interesting story but about 150 pages too long for this non-computer guy. I am a proud owner of one of Stoll's Klein bottles.

USA, Californien, 1986
Clifford Stoll er astronom, men hans bevilling er tørret ud og han får i stedet arbejde som systemadministrator på Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. En dag i 1986 bemærker han at nogen laver numre med afdelingens VAX installation.

I found this to be an enjoyable true story of tracking a hacker in the early days if the Internet, setting up alarms, putting in traps, and working with numerous agencies and telcos. It was a bit drawn out at times but I still enjoyed it. Good storytelling from a first person perspective of the hunt.
