I'm looking for a story where the main theme is computers, hacking, programing. I just finished reading The Reset Manifesto. I want a story that has none to very little sex.

There is a story that is a little like a parody about breaking the corruption by Microsoft that has lots of computers, programming, and hacking. Now if I only could remember the author, title, or the garbled names that represents Microsoft and Bill Gates...

Asa Strong's Bits, Bytes and Life is not here anymore, but is still over on BtFH. I seem to remember there was a sequel mentioned in these forums; perhaps a search will turn it up. The story is not of the modern connotation of hacking, rather the notion of a quick fix to a problem; it's set in the early days of computing (tape drives and core memory). ETA: The sequel was More than a Stretch by bytemangler

I think the story Keet is referring to might be New Computing World by Ernest Bywater; if it's not, then that's another suggestion.

That's the one and it is a good suggestion for hayden51701.
