    Re: Using "hack" as a verb

    David, you wrote:
    "I was being facetious gven the possible unfortunate results if the navigator said "hack" in a loud voice at the wrong moment."

    Don't worry. I got the joke, and I'm sure many others did, too. It reminded me of a classic Cold War movie moment:

    Captain Finlander: "Now don't worry... the Bedford will never first. But if he fires one, then I'll fire one."
    Ensign Ralston (ASROC): "Fire one!"

    And everybody dies. It's simplistic, but similar things are possible.
