"You're finally going to make your 0x00sec introduction today!" That was nearly three weeks ago. Thanks college. Anyways, after a month of exam stress and study-grinding, I've decided to take a break, push my paper off for a couple hours, and finally write my Intro. Thankfully, I'll have way more leisure time after this term, most of which will be devoted towards my personal projects, skating, and posting on this forum. Until then, many caffeine induced nights of drudgery await!
Who are you?
What's up everyone, my name is Monotone (literally the lamest handle ever, but meh). Whenever I'm not at the nearest Starbucks drinking overpriced coffee and doing a paper, you can generally find me programming and drinking tea (preferably Chai). This is actually my first time ever joining a forum, but one of my goals is to create a series that teaches the underlying theory and principles behind the tools and techniques we all know and love. Application is one thing, but knowledge is equally as important. Some of my recent interests include RTL-SDR, Raspberry pi, wireless networking, and exploitation development.
Can you program? If yes, what languages?
How'd you find us?
I happened to stumble upon this forum when I accidently clicked a reddit post with a link to your homepage. Best accident ever.
How long have you been interested in computers/infosec?
Ever since I got my first hand-me-down Gateway GT5628 in middle school. It's "blazingly fast" 2.4 GHz Intel processor, 500 GB hard drive, and NVIDIA GeForce 8500GT graphics card lasted me until my freshman year in highschool. At that point it began to really show its age (it was already old but you get my drift), and rather than trashing it, I wanted to upgrade its parts. I came across a Comptia A+ study guide PDF and found a brief section about security. After reading those two paragraphs, I became hooked, and several years later here I am. Not the most interesting story of them all, but ya know, it's still as story.
