before the term "hacking" attained its current meaning, it was first used to pertain to getting ACCESS to computers, which meant "breaking in" to buildings that housed them, and leave no trace after you're done..  this hack is the finest culmination of the art form.
 
 
Imperial Drones Rebel Scum

May 17th, 1999 - CAMBRIDGE, Mass.--internal linkMIT students, who couldn't insulate themselves from the internal link_Star Wars_atomjacked inventory cachehysteria even while studying for finals, joined the  hype by converting the Great Dome into an oversized replica of the droid R2-D2.

MIT Assistant Safety and Environmental Officer David M. Barber received a memo that describes the hack's safety features,  how it works, how the panels are constructed and mounted, and provides directions on how to remove the cables. The memo, addressed to "Imperial Drones," is signed "Rebel Scum." A dozen donuts were also left at the scene for Mr. Barber and Gary F. Cunha of the MIT Department of Facilities, who inspected the hack together. "It is one of the more professional hacks I've seen from a structural and safety standpoint," said Mr. Barber. "They went to great pains to protect the Dome. The material is very light and the wind will blow through it, not billow up behind. It is colorfast and won't run in the event of rain. The whole thing is very well done."
