you misspelled "be a k00l wannabe lamer" as "hack"

A clue: Read the f*cking manual! There is a FAQ posted here weekly
which explains what hacking is all about. It is NOT the lame cracker
type stuff you describe above. Come back when you grow up.

I was installing a fan in my new DX4-100 yesterday, and the way the
power connector was made, it wouldn't fit on the system power
connector properly. So, I removed the offending pin (fortunately not
one of the ones the fan taps power off of) from the fan-side plug, and
it fit together and my fan worked.
