You’re going down, man!

A CHAT CHANNEL spat ended when a wannabe hacker was duped into deleting his own hard drive.
The 26 year-old German claimed he was the baddest hacker in town and threatened to attack a moderator on #stopHipHop’s RC Channel because he thought he’d been thrown out.
He demanded the moderator cough up his IP address and prepare to be hacked.
The moderator sent back a bunch of numbers and there then followed a period in which the moderator assumes all manner of hack tools were unleashed at the IP address.
Finally the hacker declared success."I can see your E: drive disappearing, he gloated, “D: is down 45 percent!” he cried, before disappearing into the ether.
It seems he’d been hot enough to hack his own address. Âµ
