Alex Trebek not a hacker

In the first round of the Jeopardy college tournament, Kermin, a Computer Science and Engineering student at Carnegie Mellon made a final wager that didn’t make sense to Alex Trebek. Makes sense to all of us geeks though! I think Trebek said something like, “that’s an interesting wager.” Thanks for the link Gray.

    1337 means “leet” or “elite”. Back from the CoDC trojan days. Their trojan listened on port 31337.

    okay, i thought it was something like that (i had not figured it out exactly, but Scott’s post helped).

    I saw him last night on Jeopardy again. I flipped to it right as he was saying, “…refers to one’s coding skills. I was giving a shout out to all my classmates” (my paraphrase).

    Sad to admit I learned this while surfing a forum for people who love Volkswagens. But then I took a red pill and felt much better.
