I am now a grad student at the University of Ottawa. I recently graduated with a Master's in Computer science from the University of Ottawa, after earning an Honors Bachelor of Science with double majors in Computer Science and Logic and a minor in Math from the University of Toronto. Most of my Saturday nights are spent writing hobby code (right now, my fascination is with Genetic Algorithms) - which speaks to the lack of my social life.

I love to learn new things. Paradoxically, don't enjoy reading more than 10 pages per new topic (much to my disappointment). I have therefore developed an ability to speed read - something that the readability and speed read it bookmarklets have helped with.

Author of Pyvolytion in the python package index (which I talked about at PyConCA, 2012 and published it in the IEEE), co-author of cfg in the python package index.

I can be found on Twitter, Google+, Careers 2.0, and LinkedIn

comment Separate MAC Filtering Rules for Each Frequency in Linksys EA2700-RM
@DavidSchwartz: granted. But that's why I'm using multiple networks -you could become someone else's MAC on my guest network, at which point, I'll change the key. But I don't want to do that until I really need to (so others can continue to use the network without having to reassociate). So, step1: revoke your MAC from the whitelist. If that fails, step2: change the key.

comment Separate MAC Filtering Rules for Each Frequency in Linksys EA2700-RM
@DavidSchwartz: I'd like to be able to revoke access to devices, even after they've been on my network. Yes, this can be accomplished by changing the password, but that would require me to reassociate all my devices, which would be painful. MAC filtering is a cleaner solution

@DavidSchwartz: I'm aware of that solution, which is not very attractive to me. This is why I was hoping for multiple MAC filters

comment Using `shred` from the command line
Sure, but shred lets me set the number of overwrites. These tools don't. Any ideas on how to get that functionality?
