Hacker

I am new to blogging. So until recently I thought a hacker was a cracker, for example, someone who breaks into bank or university computers. According to Wikipedia, however, the term "hack" can be used to refer to "a program that (sometimes illegally) modifies another program, often a computer game, giving the user access to features otherwise inaccessible to them" . When I started blogging, there were no instructions on how to list comments with a post title attached. So I created some code that would take care of the problem. Most of the code was already provided in the blogger help section but some of it was not. I posted it on the Blogger Help Group blog. And now people are emailing me, telling me: "thanks for your hack". I guess strictly speaking that makes me a hacker. I have been working on a hack for changing the order of the recent comments in the recent comments section. No luck yet. Does anyone know how to do this in Blogger?
