Blog Spotlight: HackCanada 
by Lenka Reznicek [permalink] 
From the Illegal, Immoral and/or Fattening files (well, illegal, at least), HackCanada.com offers up fascinating "don't try this at home" hacks and phreaks for the North of the Border geek, though Yanks might learn a thing or two here as well.
The disclaimer reads: The information on this site is for educational and entertainment purposes only. It is not intended to encourage or teach you to break the law (that's what TV is for). The owner(s) of this website will not be held liable for anything you choose to do with the information contained on this site. If you want to learn how to make bombs and drugs and guns and shit like that, well, you won't find it here, just go to Chapters or your local library, they will hook you up very well indeed.
For those who haven't spent much time up North, Chapters™ is the Canadian homogenized book-dealer equivalent of Borders™, but ever so slightly more progressive. The way Tim Horton's™ is like Dunkin' Donuts™, only better (speaking of fattening).

{Homer} Mmmmm. Timbits™. {/Homer}

HackCanada isn't just for phone and wi-fi phreaks - they have some really enlightening sections on wetware hacking, Palm™ hacks, and some mordant essays on the decay of personal freedoms - including the right to wear your hoodie the way you damn well please in a 7-11. Check it out.
