My first computer was the TRS-80 MC10 , and I learnt to hack and assembly on that when I was 10, drove the guy in the shop nuts, how do I do this, what is the poke for that.

I also have built /disassembled electroncis since I was 10, love build bugging equipment.

Have a love of music, guitars and bass, but have now gotten into computer music and keyboards the last few years with cubase and halion sonic, and loving it.

music - the four pillars -(black sabbath - judas preist - iron maiden -motorhead ) but also a large range from Meldoy gardot , daft punk, and others, really anything except country, can listen to some but not a fan.

Into motorcycles, have a couple of Harleys and other toys.

I am a machinst / egineer , machinist by trade but went on to engineering and now working as a CAD /CAM Programmer , working with PTC Creo 2 , CGT Vericut simulation package and Icam.

I have access to my own lathe and mill, tig ,plasma, can really do a lot of my own stuff.

Have a love of the Occult and magic and spent 5 years studying Alchemy prinicples

Been away from the Hacking community for the last ten years, while following the last two interests, my career has taken 90% of my time.

But I am back and looking foward to catching up with what I love doing...hacking....

What more can I say? My user name says it all: I Luv EDM (Electronic Dance Music). :)

My favourite EDM (sub)genres are:

House, Progressive House, Dark Prog, Dark Tribal, Tech House, Tech Trance, Psy Trance, Acid Techno, Tribal Techno.

I love going raving/clubbing till late in the mornings listening to DJs like Sasha, John Digweed, STEVE LAWLER, Bad Boy Bill, Armand Van Helden, DJ Vibe, Satoshi Tomiie, Sander Kleinenberg, Green Velvet, spin at 125 to 130 BPM.
I dig this sort of EDM stuff:

Studied CompSci in Undergrad. Worked in Web Development, Tech Support, IT Consulting, and Business Development roles. Not really a drinker, but enjoy the gooood green stuff that's sold everywhere in Colorado and Washington State and soon Uruguay. LOL!

BIG Open Source user and pusher!

Love: Linux (Debian variants), the BSDs, Open Data Kit for mobile data collection, Kobo Forms, MySQL/MariaDB, Web2Project, OpenCart and many more apps/tools that are not on the tip of my tongue.

Haven't coded in a while but I can read code. Looking to get into either Nimrod, Rust or D to stay current with new language tech -- maybe even Go.

Have done coding before in VB/ASP, JavaScript, C/C++, VAX Macro Assembler, Pascal. But a little rusty only because I was doing less development stuff and traveling/exploring another continent for almost a decade.

Looking to get back into Pascal via the FreePascal/Lazarus IDE project since I got started with Turbo Pascal. :-)
