I'm a programmer, currently working at the Army Research Lab. In my spare time I like to read, travel, go to movies (only the big screen really does it for me), make music, or goof on the internet. I also contribute to WikiQuote.

Dear Sir, you redacted my article on the newly discovered NSA trojan hack in the firmware of virtually all hard drives. You mentioned that the subject was covered in another article, but you failed to mention the name of that article. garfield garfield
