Phacking: A Brief History of Hacking the US Postal System
By Alien Time Agent, Seraf and Waldo
Phacking (postal hacking, pronounced PAH-king) has enjoyed a glorious but
obscure history in the United States, beginning with the godfather of phacking,
Samuel Osgood. It wasn't until the summer of 1969 that Zip C0de brought
phacking into the public eye. While he was only 20 years of age at the time, he
had already caught the attention of authorities. For Zip C0de, C-Note, PhedEx and the
other brave pioneers, here is a brief history of hacking the US postal system.

A demonstration of the Elasticsearch query that yields the error "Failed to find geo_shape field [location]]." This is a search of a collection of documents—each of which contain a pair of coordinates—against a pre-indexed collection of shapes. For simplicity's sake, I've included just one shape and just one document. This is with Elasticsearch …

We can make this file beautiful and searchable if this error is corrected: It looks like row 7 should actually have 15 columns, instead of 1.
