No replies or 'Welcome to the forums' responses though. Just seems like other forums that I have frequented in the past were a little more welcoming in this regard.

Guess since I've been on here for about 3 months I should introduce myself.

Been into computers now for 24 years. Started when I was 5 years old and my dad brought home our first computer; an old XT 8086. Since I saw the command prompt I was hooked. Spent 9 years in the air force where I did a lot of net-admin and sysad work, and while in I discovered the good 'ol 802.11 standard. Once I learned about it, I was obsessed with hacking it. My love for "getting in" spread to other tools, and eventually brought me to the pineapple. I am now working with a friend of mine to bring a CLI toolset to the pineapple/pi (or pineapple/laptop). Love the platform, but I can see its potential as something much larger than a "click the butt0n and pwn the n00bz" device. Looking forward to releasing the toolset once it's been polished, and I hope it receives a warm welcome, but honestly I'm in it to learn more.

Look forward to helping out and receiving help from you guys. This (so far) has been a kick-ass community.

First, thank you to the entire Hak5 team! You and your videos are awesome.

Name: Matt

Occupation: Student (M.S. in Computer Science)

Hobbies: Continued IT education and poking around at different 'hacks' to supplement my in class education (e.g. the Rubber Ducky, wifi sniffing/hacking, etc) and hope to get the Wifi Pineapple when I get some more $ together.

I'm not a great coder (yet...hopefully) and I'm still figuring out where I fit and what I'm good at but am here to learn and share whatever knowledge I may be able to bring to the table.

Hi everyone,

I've been a fan of Hak5 since I first ran across it a around two-three summers ago. Been a daily reader of the forums for about a year steady. I'm glad to have found such a wealth of information,in addition to good and knowledgeable people with whom to correspond with.

In return for all I've learned on the forums, and will learn in the days to come, I hope that I can be of help and support whenever possible. I'm not a security expert by any means but through sharing some of my experiences and failures I may be able to help some that have less knowledge than myself.

Hi Everyone,

I'm Dave. I started watching the show years ago, stopped and now have taken it upon myself to watch every episode from start to current. I'm in Season 5 right now trying to wrap my head around packets. More or less learn as much as possible. I've been programming for about 7 years and started solely on linux about the same time. I use linux as often as possible to solve my problems. I have fun stuff like MythTV setup, proxmox VE, and changed my win 8 laptop over to ubuntu as soon as I purchased it. Anyway enough about my excitement. I guess that's all for now. Some bio below. Oh and welcome to all of you that are here already!

I'm Pete, aka Apache, 29 years old from North West England. I've been at university since 2008, first of all doing a Foundation Year degree, then onto a full BSc (Hons) in Computer Network Technology in 2009. I took a gap year in 2010 and 2011 and now I'm back in the second year of my degree. Before coming to uni, I worked as a Systems Administrator at the College of Law. My nickname Apache was my membership alias at Laser Quest when I was young. When I started working there, our name-tags had our handles on them rather than names so that's how most of my friends knew me. The name was taken from the Apache Longbow gunship and has nothing to do with the Web Server or the tribe.

I have a few passions in life; the main being music. Live music in particular. I love watching musicians do their thing; whether it's on stage in front of tens of thousands or just tens, or just in a pub, or busking. I appreciate music of almost all genres (not rap/hip hop) and have one of the most eclectic music collections I know of. I love going to festivals; just camping in general to be honest, but when I set up a tent on a festival field, the first thing I think is "I've come home". I play guitar and am a singer/songwriter; I've played some gigs on stage at festivals around the UK.

Within computing, I have a few main passions. The two biggest of which are network security and programming. I've been programming from a very early age. I learning to type on a keyboard before I learned to write with a pen and by the time I was five I'd learned the basics of procedural programming in BASIC on an Acorn BBC Microsystem. Where most kids got Robots for their birthdays, I got a book on how to program one with Mechano and a BBC. Since then I've taught myself VB, C, C# and various Web Development languages including HTML, CSS, JavaScript, PHP, ASP.NET and JQuery. I started hacking in my teenage years, doing basic script kiddie stuff with programs like Divine Intervention, Netbus and SubSeven. There's only a certain amount of phreaking you can do in the UK, but it always peaked my interest. I took my early inspiration from The Jolly Rogers Cookbook, The Anarchists Handbook and The Terrorists Handbook. Some friends and I used to make home made fireworks and experimented with homemade smoke grenades and exploding balloons.

More recently I've been interested in the white-hat side of hacking; penetration testing, network security, information security, cryptographics. I've developed a few of my own encryption algorithms as well as a few utility programs that aid monitoring of network activity. I'm an avid fan of web programs such as Tekzilla and Hak5 that teach various aspects of computing and technology in easily understandable ways. Hak5 in particular has taught me a huge amount. Because of Hak5, my Networking degree has been very easy to follow; this year by following Hak5's segments on the various stuff we're learning, I've yet to get under 90% for a single assignment! I've managed to fit a bit of Technolust into each written report and Darren actually appears in the bibliography for one of my dissertations. :D

Since joining these forums, I'm joined the development team for the USB Rubber Ducky. I rewrote the code for the DuckEncoder for the v3 initial release and introduced the Duckling plugins.

I'm a Windows Kid. Linux just confuses the fuck out of me. I hate how convoluted it is! I tried putting PwnPi on my Raspberry but PwnPi doesn't come with any network manager so you have to go through some stupid convoluted ritual involving supplicants or some shit whenever you come across a new wireless network. What is so wrong with right-click->connect? There are NO guides which teach you the basics of Linux. Every single guide, even the "Linux for first time users" guides assume far far too much prior knowledge. It's impossible to get help on any forum or IRC or help site online for Linux as well. People just launch into PhD style dissertations and I'm left on the first line thinking "ok, so 'ls' is their version of 'dir'". It wasn't even funny how long I spent in terminal typing "'cls', no, 'clearscreen', no, 'cl', no..." AAAGGGGHHH! Linux pisses me off! Nothing is ever simple! Windows all the way and further!

But, having said that, I hope Metro dies a horrible death very soon. If I'm ever forced to install Windows 8 then I'm putting pillow over the fan outlet and I hope to see it in Valhalla when I die. I almost cried when I saw the mess they'd made of Visual Studio 2012, it's vile!

Favourite Game: World of Warcraft

Favourite OS: Windows 7

Favourite Console: N/A

Nationality: British (English)

Accent: English (North West)

Sex: Male

Race: White British

Favourite Band: Far to many to list! The only genres of music I detest are rap and hip hop. R&B stands for Rhythm and Blues! I mainly listen to Traditional and Contemporary Folk music and Metal. I like my Metal hard and fast and heavy. Power Metal is by far my favourite sub-genre. Ooh, my favourite Power Metal band is Lost Horizon. I hope Daniel Heiman comes to his senses soon and comes back to the only band that truly deserves his godlike voice!

Favourite Book: The Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan (16 books)

Favourite Author: JRR Tolkien / Robert Jordan

Favourite Movie: The Crow is my all time favourite film. A close second is Cruel Intentions. Then Queen of The Damned (the sound track is an aural orgasm!), Interview With a Vampire and A Knight's Tale.

Favourite TV Show: Firefly, Gene Roddenbery's Andromeda and Battlestar Galactica (2004). Andromeda probably trumps the other two though, if only just.

Favourite Actor: I don't really have a favourite.

Favourite Actress: I don't really have a favourite.

Favourite Pinup: Sasha Grey, Cytheria, Sharon Ehman

Favourite Comedian: I don't really have a favourite.

Other Hobbies: LRP, TableTop RPG,

Car: Renault Megane

Occupation: Student / Freelance Web Developer / Technical Consultant

Haha, cheers. I really wish I got into Linux a long time ago. Still plenty of time to learn. When I get a pineapple I'm gonna dual boot with Backtrack and just launch myself into it. I still need Windows though for a lot of things, mainly Microsoft Office and Visual Studio. Still apprehensive about porting over, but hey, at least it's not a Mac! :p
