About me


Hi. I'm Albert, interested in everything Linux and security. I love learning about the inner workings of systems. But I suppose you could call me a "generalist" when it comes to computers. I can hack something in C, write a GUI or do some web dev... you get the idea. Outside of that, I play chess and read.

Professional life included desktop and web development (mostly .NET languages and PHP) as well as IT administration (mixed Linux and Windows environments). Currently, it's within the context of embedded systems security. I am also studying for a M. Sc. in IT Security.

What's with the domain name? What's supposed to be "quite simple"?
I registered it because I found the domain name quite ;-) interesting, as it can basically mean anything, yet also nothing. Nevertheless, part of the idea was also to be a "brand" of the supposed principle behind the projects here: to avoid complexity if possible and keeping it simple. However, this can be debated and it's subjective. Generally, I certainly would not make the claim that all software here is created with that principle in mind.

Overall though, it doesn't mean anything.

How to pronounce your handle, "crtxcr"?
cortexcore. As for the why and how behind the nickname... that's a story for another time...
