If you know me in real life you might know that I am a Star Wars fan (my nickname is a hint…). Couple of days ago I stumbled across a nice video. In this YouTube video David Welch explains in great detail how the editing team of Star Wars saved the movie.

As of August the 30th I may call myself a Master of Science (MSc.). At that date I have successfully defended my thesis titled “Combating Snowshoe Spam with Fire”. People have often asked if ‘Fire’ is some kind of an acronym, it ain’t 😉 In the thesis we detail how DNS configurations may be used to track down snowshoe spam domains. Snowshoe spam spreads out the sending over a great number of hosts to reduce the volume per host, making the individual hosts harder to detect and blacklist.
For the last couple of weeks I have been developing a Virtual Reality Browser. In true Linux fashion, I was not satisfied with the VR Browsers available in the Google Play Store, so I developed my own.

This is mainly due to me not having any experience in Android app development, at all.
