My passion for computer science started when my brother brought me to his work at Data General. I was only 9 that time. I still remember the reels but I really don't know what they were called. He saw that I was very interested, he bought a Radioshack TRS-80
computer for me. I got more interested into it after watching War Games. I started developing basic programs trying to mimic what the modem was doing in that movie.
In college, during my last days(presentation of work to pass college), my work was awarded as the best thesis. I wrote an antivirus program along with disk tools.
I got into Linux
so much in 1994. I started with kernel 1.2.13, Slackware distribution. It was a pita to install since we make our own bootdisk. During this year, I became so interested in security/hacking
after my slackware box got owned due to an imap vulnerability. This was the start of the year I became addicted to white hacking.
The skills I accumulated over the years lead me to job/work I really like. I read lot of books regarding different technologies. I made my own server farm to simulate how internet apps work. Learned so many things especially programs that ISPs run to support thousands of users. I was always on irc specifically on EFNET
channel. I still connect to it. I'm always hungry for learning new stuff.
I love developing programs, either in Microsoft or Unix environment. I love breaking things. I love to push things that are not meant to be that way. I would just try anything. That's how I am.
Anyways, for my pasttime, photography is one of the things I love doing. Nature/Landscape photography is what I love most. However, I also like chasing storms as well as macro photography.
Another thing I like doing is making timelapse videos. You can check few timelapse videos I made via my YouTube
link. I also developed Timelapse Calculator
which will allow you to easily figure out how long the scene is going to be and how many shots area needed.
