I'm a geek.

Mostly, I program C# stuff, everything from XNA, Silverlight, and Windows 8 metro-style applications to ASP.NET, services, and WinForms. I've got a lot of .NET specific stuff under my belt, like WCF, WPF, and the like, but I also do a lot with Databases (all the way down to RDBMS theory), and algorithms.

comment Securing Windows 7 using Bluetooth
@ScottPack While I understand what you're saying in general, (give him the answer, not a link to the answer) I fail to see how to better supply a more direct answer in this case. I presume that he's looking for something that will allow him to lock his machine when he walks away. The application I linked to does precisely that. I didn't say "If you do this google search, you can find things like that" I essentially said "you can install this application." Should I include the source code here? A copy of the executable to host here? No, go get it at the source. That link is the answer.

Microsoft EMET doesn't really apply here, it should be compatible with BTProx.

comment Securing Windows 7 using Bluetooth
What is it you want specifically? The ability to use a bluetooth device (like your phone) to lock the computer when it leaves? What kinds of attacks do you want to secure the stack from? You acknowledge that devices can be spoofed, so the other thing that might need to be secured is the data, but you also acknowledge that you don't need to transmit data for this scenario. Could you please clarify?

What about places like a work machine where you're not allowed to install software willy nilly? You believe the machine is secure, but the tools aren't available.
