I am a technology geek who loves computers. Periodically I run across news articles from Bleeping Computer that are featured on Google News. After reading the article, I occasionally find myself wanting to add a comment/insight...but then when I see that registration is required (no SSO), I usually bag the idea and continue along in my busy life. Today I finally had some time and remembered to create my account -- woot! :D
I'm a professional software engineer with interests in cryptography, reverse engineering, network communication and low-level operating system internals. I love to learn how things work from the ground up.
Most of my life I've been a Microsoft and Unix & Linux proponent. Although I stay intimately familiar with the latest Windows internals, I must admit my enthusiasm for Windows has drastically waned since the introduction of Windows 8. I'm not a fan the new direction Microsoft is taking and moved most of my host machines to Linux and use virtual machines for Windows.
Well, I think that is it for now. Nice to meet you and I hope you have a wonderful Christmas & New Years holidays!
