I first learned the basics of C by myself and a little help from friends, after that I learned C++ at school, php, MYSQL, and so on.

I'm a big fan of the KISS principle.

I don't like languages like java, C#, javascript, but am a big fan of python.

I still have to learn to do some good haskell.

I'm currently making a 3D game with Ogre3D and bullet with my free time. I intend to make a minimalist RPG where you can harvest different types of material and scraps, and learn to build new things for your survival and the worker you hire.

I'm also thinking about a level editor to make very big levels with the help of procedural generation. After using Enet as a networking library, I'll release my new MMOFPS and make millions of dollars. But I should maybe find a job first.

I'm also interested in maths and cryptography, but I don't master those subjects.

comment How can someone go off-web, and anonymise themselves after a life online?
What do you mean by "do not buy the same food from the same brands". I live in france, but are grocery store and supermarkets allowed to build a database of what items you buy and tying it to a credit card number ? I don't really know if that's done in france and in what stores specifically. I do most of my shopping at a discount store, but that thing I never wondered about.

two words: fuzzy logic. fuzzy logic is hard if not impossible to efficiently predict.

comment How is “hacking” even possible if I “defend” properly?
Are there OSes that supports those standards ? (does backtrack do ?) Are those standards strict enough ? Do they apply to programming languages and compilers ? I guess ADA would be a language that respects it, but if not, and if nobody really care about those, it's not really a standard, it's just a piece of paper. Maybe it's just some corporate war about selling antivirus software, but in any case, I admit I haven't heard of anything really significant.

comment Where can I learn cryptography/cryptanalysis the hard way, without going to school ? Any good book?
more by reading, but also by doing, I mean cryptography is meaningless without cryptanalysis.

comment XKCD #936: Short complex password, or long dictionary passphrase?
Does bit entropy applies if I one uses only common words coming from a dictionnary ? Brute force is long, but you can take shortcut by, for example, for all password you'll try, put combinations of common word first. Would those method be faster ?
