My name is Sirkus, I prefer not to provide too many details in relation to my identity, thus I do not wish to reveal my country of origin.
I am a keen computer programmer (read nerd), and can write in a variety of computer languages including C++, Assembly and Python. Unfortunately my enthusiasm frequently exceeds my skill level, and my programs usually fail miserably.
I am well versed with most commercial (and free) software and operating systems, and have a deep distrust of Microsoft Windows. Alas all of my computers run Debian, or some other flavor of Linux.
Academically, I am a Cisco Certified Engineer and I have had years of experience in the deployment and securing of networks. I have used many of the popular penetration testing software available, and am always on the lookout to learn something new.
I am a native English speaker, and know a little German and Russian. However my past attempts at conversing with native speakers of these languages have lead to a few confused looks. From this I have gathered that I cannot speak these languages that well.
If you are visiting this page because I have made a mistake, please accept my apologies. I can assure you that any amendments I make have been done in good faith, and if you would care to chat with me first, I am sure we can work out issues that have arisen.
All the best guys (and girls)
