Don't you know the definition of 'hack'?

n.

1. A clever or elegant technical accomplishment, especially one with a
playful or prankish bent. A clever routine in a computer program,
especially one which uses tools for purposes other than those for which
they were intended, might be considered a hack. Students at technical
universities, such as MIT, are famous for performing elaborate hacks,
such as turning a fourteen-story building into a giant Tetris game by
placing computer-controlled lighting panels in its windows.
