Introduce yourself


Recommended Posts


I am into Software Defined Radio and have been demonstrating, what I like to call, "Google Software Defined Radio GSM Mobile Phone Networks " with a SDR device I intend on manufacturing here in Chicago, Illinois.

Next, if any of you are in the Chicago Area, you can attend my Software Defined Radio demonstration before the MIT Enterprise Forum of Chicago on April 9, 2013:


More information is available about me here:


And I am hoping to launch a Kickstarter project utilizing this website:

Figure I'll introduce myself... Just a long time fan of the show. I love tech be it computers, video games, etc. Currently out of work and have been since September of last year. So just been reading up on all new tech, etc since then as well as job hunting. Wouldn't mind getting back into the helpdesk field but even just getting into warehouse work is proving hard enough. Apparently you need a phd to pick up & carry boxes now the way things are going.

Hello, I am Spazi.

I've been wanting to join this forum for a long time and hopefully learn a few tricks or two ;)

I always wanted to learn how to hack but never started until about 1 year ago (really late I know)
I try not being a script kitty and I've managed to pull off some pretty cool hacks every now and then.

Most successful hacks involves hacking routers and websites.
I've been tinkering with electronics for a long time and enjoy building synths, guitars and studio gear, so learning how to program stuff and hack was just a perfect side hobby.
Just ordered the rubberducky and really looking forward to having some fun with it!

hi all, I work IT, but I don't feel like a "real" IT professional in a way, I do IT project managment. Anway I've been really just learning about IT security for the past few year, mainly just trying to understand things and improve my own security situation. A lot of what I know if from hak5 and readings/sites they've suggested. I'm also into arudio projects and with that I have one project complete and another about 90% finished. I'm orgnially from Florida but have been living and working in europe for the past two years. I'm a pretty regular younger middle age guy, I love freedom, peace and technology. Any further questions feel free to ask, maybe I'll answer :)

Hey all, I'm glad to have found a great forum. I really enjoy the show, it has been helping me understand some rudimentary concepts.

I work in IT (entry-level) but have been a PC-addict since ~ 1998. Of course, when I was younger, I had a terribly narrow-minded view of the "hacking" world, and over my more "adult" life have realized how ill-conceived my views were. I use to be that guy on IRC asking "how duz I h4x tha pent4gonz?!?!??1" (of course, i was 10 at the time).

I've realized over the past 5~6 years how interesting programming can be. I'm currently obsessed with home-automation / RF Technology, but see myself branching out through other forms of wireless communication and maybe getting into pen-testing. I enjoy simplicity and functionality in things, but it's always neat to get my hands dirty and make the most complicated rube-goldberg-esque contraption I can.

I work as a techie at a small company right now, and while I enjoy the relaxing atmosphere, I want to learn more and take on more responsibility.

Anyway, I've been lurking here for a while, and recently decided to register an account.

Favourite game: Diablo II (it's been years since I've had the chance to play, though)

Favourite OS: I guess my go-to is Win7, but only because I can run just about anything on it. I enjoy learning new OS's (yes, even OSX), but I'll probably be with Windows 7 until it is obsolete.

Favourite console: I guess the original XBox? I use to spend my summers finding glitches in Halo 2. I didn't have a lot of IRL friends.

Nationality: American. American. The greatest nation with the greatest government. I love the government. Or government is great. The NSA great. I love America.

Accent: I probably have a speech-impediment that I am unaware of. People can't seem to understand me sometimes.

Sex: Male

Age: 22

Race: Caucasian / Russian / Native-American

Height: 5'11"

Status: single

Build: Slim / Slender / Skinny / Any other word for not-muscular

Favourite band: They Might Be Giants / Circa Survive / Bob Dylan (pre-electric) / Bjork / The Postal Service / Del The Funky Homosapien / Daft Punk / Death Cab For Cutie / The Beatles

Favourite book: "The Hobbit" / Rene Descartes: Meditations I & II / 1984

Favourite author: This is a tough one, I guess I don't really have a "favourite". I like sci-fi and fantasy.

Favourite movie: Kill Bill, X-Men, Star Trek was alright, Harry Potter, Trainspotting, The Last Samurai, Soylent Green, A Clockwork Orange

Favourite TV Show: Doctor Who is pretty cool. I don't get around to watching much TV lately. I think Adventure Time can be pretty neat :]

Favourite actor: I really don't have one. I'm not much of a TV / Movie kinda guy.

Favourite actress: "

Favourite Pinup: I use to be a fan of Megan Fox, but lately, I just don't find myself following this kind of thing.

Favourite Comedian: Mitch Hedberg / Demitri Martin

Other hobbies: Electric-Cigarettes / Photoshop / Arduino / Learning Linux / Building Computers / Taking things apart

Car: Currently without a vehicle =[ I'm a big fan of Mazda's though, my first car was an '02 Protege, then an '03 Protege5, then an '02 MazdaSpeed Protege, then an '02 Volvo S60 (lot's of neat technology, but a serious POS).

Occupation: I work as Tech Support at a small company, but I'm pretty new to it with no cred's / certs. Surprisingly, it's all pretty much common-sense so far. You'd be amazed at how many people move a window to the corner of a screen and proceed to call Tech Support because they can't find it :I

Thank's for taking the time to read this, Cheers!

Howdy from Tennessee. Long story less long. I was living a happy(and somewhat tech lazy) life with my 2002 iMac running OS X 10.3.9 when an EMP killed my computer. Having forgotten my lesson from using Windows 98 and not having the money for another Mac my wife and I bought a new HP laptop at Wally World with Windows 8 on it. Even running anti-virus the system picked up a Trojan and borked within a week so I returned it to WalMart for a full refund and used the funds to buy two older laptops and installed Ubuntu 12.04LTS on em'. My wife is still running Ubuntu on her Compaq CQ57 but after a bit of Dirtro Hopping I've settled in with Linux Mint 15 MATE on my little HP nc6400.

Anyway, my Mac dying was actually a blessing since it's gotten me off of my butt and back into tech. I'm watching as many tech shows as I can get on my Roku. Tekzilla, Catagory 5, Hak5, ect. and I'm really lovin' it. Many times what's said goes totally over my head but I figure that if I learn it then someday it'll make sense so I just keep on watching and learning as much as I can.

I've been unemployed for almost 4 years but with my new found tech knowlege I'd love to try and get a job in the tech market if I can since I do have a Technical background.

Anyway, just wanted to stop in and say "Howdy" and I'll see ya'll on the forums.

I Used to be on #hak5 a lot don't really remember when I stopped.
I probably stopped watching Hak5 because I was pretty sad,
when Matt left the show to do other things.

No hard feelings over him leaving just felt it wasn't the same show.
I decided I should post this to show I've decided to start watching again.
