    Roll Call!

    Long time no see. IIRC we share a last name, but yours is spelled correctly ;)

    Do you still identify with your handle?

    Yes. It's been my nick since I was 9, and still is today. Everywhere on the internet you'll see me as Girvo. The only issue? My younger brother is called Girvo too now, as we went to the same school and now if he beats me to a website I have to use something else haha

    What if I told you.

    What if I told you that my old work is threatening legal action unless I do 60 hours of work for free because of their mismanagement

    What Did You Watch Lately ?

    So I finally watched Firefly. And now I'm sad because it's over and never coming back :'(
  6. I thought IQ does have a big genetic component? That's what most of the research I came across last I looked into this said anyway.
  7. Microsoft Encarta was my absolute favourite as a 5 year old, same with this awesome game called Hooray For Maths, where you had to complete simple maths problems in time to gain back your characters wedding suit bits, so he can marry his bride, but if you failed he got dunked in cold custard by the evil parrot. I last played that game nearly 20 years ago and I still remember it clear as day. Started my lifelong fascination and aptitude with maths, along with my parents help.

    Post Your Latest Real Life Purchase!

    Started a new job after I was made redundant 4 weeks ago; got a brand new, top of the range 15" Retina MacBook Pro, and two 27" IPS screens to go with it. I'm in heaven :D

    Asylum Seeking cowards

    Single working aged males make excellent consumers and workers. I wonder if that has anything to do with it?

    Islamic State hostage situarion

    Which I'm thankful for. Australia has a lot of bigots, unfortunately, and race and religion relations are interesting here. I pass no judgement either way, but worrying about a certain subset of people reacting in a bad way to what happened, considering that subset of people are often just looking for an excuse to do so, is not a bad thing in my personal opinion.

    New Programming Language

    Learn Ruby. If you're going into Security, you'll want to learn Metasploit, and it's modules are Ruby :) Aside from that you'll need to understand C enough to exploit it. Other than that, a lot of security guys I know are adoring Go for writing binaries for various things.
