About me

Hi. I'm Albert, a software developer interested in everything Linux and security, but overall a "generalist" when it comes to computers. I also enjoy chess and reading books.

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 behind the name was also to serve as a "brand" of the supposed principle behind the projects here: to avoid complexity if possible and keeping it simple. However, I certainly would not make the claim that all projects here were created with that principle in mind, as some deviate from that pragmatic reasons.

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