Hacking was held in hi esteem since it showed prowess and skill in a climate where computer was considered an alien device.

As companies such as Microsoft, grew and their power and clout increased "HACKER" became a hunted animal. I'm not sure if most of you out there remember that "BG" was a hacker and stole the idea for Windows from XEROX labs. LOL:)
From the official internet glossary, RFC 1392:

RFC 1392 - Internet Users\x27 Glossary

A person who delights in having an intimate understanding of the internal workings of a system,
computers and computer networks in particular.
The term is often misused in a pejorative context, where "cracker" would be the correct term.
See also: cracker.
A cracker is an individual who attempts to access computer systems without authorization.
These individuals are often malicious, as opposed to hackers, and have many means at their disposal for breaking into a system.
See also: hacker, Computer Emergency Response Team, Trojan Horse, virus, worm.
Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF)
The IETF is a large, open community of network designers, operators, vendors, and researchers
whose purpose is to coordinate the operation, management and evolution of the Internet,
and to resolve short-range and mid-range protocol and architectural issues.
It is a major source of proposals for protocol standards which are submitted to the IAB for final approval.
The IETF meets three times a year and extensive minutes are included in the IETF Proceedings.
See also: Internet, Internet Architecture Board. [Source: FYI4]
RFC 1392 was obsoleted by RFC 1983, which essentially says the same:

Hi. I'm using Outlook 2010 also as Calendar application. When I'm switching to the Calendar View the "day view" is open, but I want to see the "week view". I think in the early days it was the way i want it - week view. I don't know since when the behavior changed - maybe the last updates?...

If I change the view of one folder, the view of all folders changes?!?
For example, if I change the view of one folder to "large icons" or to "list" or whatever, then ALL of the folders will have that view. But I want specific folders to have specific view types. How can I accomplish this?
