Redn3ck_0 - Jeff - Introduction


#1

What’s up guys. I’m nut sure how to describe myself. I know a little bit about a lot of things (enough to make me dangerous, some would say). I cut my teeth on a Commodore 128, BASIC, a 1200 baud modem (if I remember correctly) and BBS. I guess my niche would be hardware, but anything & everything computer related interests me. I’m former Law Enforcement (16 years) and an Army Vet (4 years). I’m also a metalhead with experience on both sides of the coin.

I’m here to help and to learn. If you’re at all interested, you can find my geeky side at https://twitter.com/TheJeffBaines and my artistic asshole side here… https://www.instagram.com/j.l.baines/

I love learning about the early era of technology and information security. I hope we get some of those war-torn stories of “back in my day.”

As my daughter would remind me, I’m old school too. I ran a BBS back in the day and I guess that’s where I got the bug for computer networks and how they work, how you can exploit them. I remember asking my parents for a second phone line so I could have two nodes for my BBS, I might as well have been asking for a new car at the time. I used Wildcat BBS software back then, some local sysop gave me a copy. Ah the good old days :wink:
