I am a licensed Amateur Radio Operator with callsign VE4FEB. I usually work
on RF projects and occasionally checking in on radio nets on 2m Bands. I am
also active on cw mode, mostly on 40m, 20m, and 15m bands. Special thanks to
Adam VE4SN for comming to my house to give me my exam.

I have more than 15 years of Professional Electronics Engineering background
taking on tasks in Design, Debugging and Manufacturing Support. I spent 8
years of that in the Philippines working on Power Electronics Product
Development, later accepting opportunities in Hongkong and Malaysia on a
more System Level Hardware Development work.

In the late 1990s’ I have spent most of my time studying infection and
stealth techniques of self replicating programs. Primary interests where
polymorphism, encryption, multipartite and multiplatform techniques. I
learned coding in 32-bit windows and extended DOS assembly during this
period. My first Unix exposure was on a AT&T System V (SVR2) compatible
version of D-Nix running on a Motorola 68k. It was during the time I was
doing field maintenance work for a banks client management system. I
completely switched my os to Linux when Redhat 6.1 distro was released.
After three months I subsequently replaced it with Slackware, Debian, LFS3.3
before finally settling on Crux. I switched to using OpenBSD around 2006.

I write Atmel firmware using AVRDUDE in OpenBSD, write simulation tools in
Plan9 and maintain my code and documentation using Mac OS Mercurial and
Bitbucket. At work I mostly deal with tools running on MS Windows. My
preferred programming language is C for most of my personal projects, but
have written programs in various programming languages including Procedural
(C, C++, Python, VB, TCL etc.) and Functional (Haskell and Scheme). I use
the tools and language that will get me a completed project sooner.
