First Post - Mission Statement

     Beginner security practitioners and programmers sometimes have a hard time getting acquainted with cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 tools of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 trade. In a recent discussion on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Taosecurity blog at http://taosecurity.blogspot.com Richard Bejtlich interviewed a security analyst who had participated in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 2005 CTF competition at Def Con. In this discussion, I had brought up cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 lack of “hands on” type activities such as CTF tournaments.

     So I was inspired to start this blog. Taking a cue from Rich, I came to blogspot and started an account. The purpose of this blog is post information of technical relevance in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 fields of Computer Security, Programming, and technology in general. Here I will post news, articles, and examples in each of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365se areas. I will muse on topics, and give anecdotes into each of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365se areas. I will post discussions over programs I come across. I did this for some beginners to learn from me and also in hopes of learning something new from cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 more experienced individuals out cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365se areas.

     Here is some background on me. I was involved with cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 scene when it was referred to as H/P/A/V/C (that’s Hacking/Phreaking/Anarchy/Virii/Carding, I don’t think that acronym is still used). Before cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 “Geek Chic” computer savviest of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Yahoo generation cried and took cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 term hacker for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365mselves because it “sounded cool”, and crackers were people who were part of warez scene that cracked copy protection, and hackers wanted nothing to do with cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365m. This was before dial up accounts allowed clients direct connection and all we had were shell accounts, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 World Wide Web was just starting to emerge, but Gopher was still dominate, and even Mosaic was a whisper (if it was even around at that time, my memory is a little fuzzy). This was back when boxes were used to manipulate cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 phone system to get free calls, eavesdrop on conversations, and modify your phone to make conference calls at your neighbors expense. AT&T and BSD were fighting with each ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 rights to Unix. Java wasn’t even a gleam in Suns eye, C++ was a mysterious and scary language, and although C was king, Pascal came in a close second. No one had even heard of Kevin Mitnick, so when Cyberspace chanted “Free Kevin” I had to say Déjà vu because I remember what happened to Phiber Optic and MOD.

     Programming became by passion in life, and still is to this day. Back cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365n, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 demo scene showed us what you could do with just a bit of assembly knowledge and really push cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 limits of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 PC’s in those days. Programs like this inspired me to learn languages like Pascal, C, and Assembly in those days of Borland’s Turbo products.

     Enough of my reminiscing, welcome to my blog. I welcome all comments and questions. If I don’t know cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 answer, I will do my best to point you in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 right direction.
