Elite
  • adj. Clueful. Plugged-in. One of the cognoscenti. Also used as a general positive adjective. This term is not actually hacker slang in the strict sense; it is used primarily by crackers and warez d00dz. Cracker usage is probaby related to a 19200cps modem called the `Courier Elite' that was widely popular on pirate boards before the V. 32bis standard. A true hacker would be more likely to use `wizardly'. Oppose lamer.
