I am a Professional Hacker of Internets.

I worked for AOL for almost thirteen years as a security engineer and have been in the industry for over 20 years, automating anything that isn't tied down so I have more time to automate things.

My best and favorite language is Python. I first learned to code in Perl, which really wasn't the greatest of introductions. (Bad programming practices!) I always found programming tedious and boring, yet still necessary, before I discovered Python.

I have lots of skills with all things tech: servers, network hardware, firewalls, game systems... It's all prime for hacking!!

comment Is it correct to say “the 'following' customer”?
The literal definition of following is "coming after or as a result of". Tuesday comes after Monday (Tuesday is the following day). If Bob is behind Alice in line, Bob comes after Alice, therefore Bob follows Alice and is the following customer. I still insist that this makes sense and people will understand what you mean when you say it.

comment How do you use “i.e.” in a sentence?
Me fail English? That's unpossible!
