I spent pretty much the past four or five days reading through this 130 page "Introduce yourself"
thread. Why? I have no clue aside for hoping to learn about a subset of the members that
posts in this community.
I'm impulse_x. I'm one of the 40+ year old members here. I don't remember how old; but I guess I can figure out. Just
lazy. ;P Seriously, after a certain age, I no longer care about how old I am. Just as long as I'm still alive,
I have come here to understand myself through others and to understand how to grok my brain and
try to gain knowledge in computers. Well, I've been using computers for a long time. While my first
computer was an Apple ][, I think I did the major programming/computing when I had my first IBM XT.
It's a nice list to show off; but seriously, I only know a bit of each though I've done most of my
programming in Delphi and dBase. In recent years, I've started to learn python and hoping to
learn Ruby. I certainly can't do much in python or ruby.
I'm interested in hacking mainly as a way to understand things around me. I mean, if hacking
is just a mindset of how we learn and understand things around us, I would say we're all
life hackers. We learn every day. We try to understand everything that comes our way.
I'm still learning.
Anyway I digress.
I've done all the basic missions and most of the realistic ones (doing 15 right now *insane*).
Kinda realized that even if with those basic missions done, I still find myself forgetting
the past lessons.
My memory isn't that good. I'm now wondering if my memory was
ever good. *shrug* Anyway..
What I like? Reading, programming (not a whole lot now) and playing the occasional
game or two (PS3). I go to the gym once or twice a week just to keep my stress
Thanks for your patience.
