	"Hackers", like "Sneakers" a few years before it, were actually fairly 
accurate as long as the characters sat around and talked about technical 
stuff (because the film people hired the right tech advisors for these 
films). However, as soon as they needed to actually show anything 
technical on screen, that's when Hollywood kicked in and believability 
went way down.
