Ruxmon Talk

So I was given the chance to speak at the monthly Ruxmon security lectures here in Melbourne. While many people were off at Blackhat and Defcon this month, the room we were in was packed. In fact, I would say about 45-50 or so humans showed up! It was a blast, and I feel my communication went well. The talk I gave was on PDFs, PostScript, the security concerns of these data formats/languages, and the PDFResurrect. The slides I have posted here.

That's right my faithful reader(s)? I have been in Melbourne two years now! Today is my two year anniversary!


There comes a time in every mans life...

When one must seek other methods of relief... yep

Blow some stuff up for me!

So, it's the 4'th of July here. Not an independence day. Putting all nationalism aside, as both myself and Einstein look negatively upon the concept nationalism. I want all my buddies back home to do me a favor. Get the biggest dang fireworks, cross a few state borders if necessary, and light that puppy up! Happy Blow Stuff Up Day!

Copy of my Research Work

Region based what? So the paper, "Towards Region-Based Memory Management for Go," that myself and advisers had worked on and accepted at the ACM sponsored Memory Systems Performance and Correctness (MSPC) workshop is available. Much of this was written by my advisors, heck, when you have three incredibly smart advisers working on a paper, it's hard to fight anyone. The result, I am quite proud of. Mainly, I care primarily about having fun, writing code, and learning. I think the work towards this paper achieved just that. In fact, the numbers are from my code. Of course, my advisers helped me design the system that reported on in the paper. So, I am somewhat pleased. Plus, this got me a trip to Beijing. The PDF copy of said paper is here. And the ACM Digital Library data is here. Pull out your e-reader and curl-up on the toilet, it is a pretty intense read.
