I just stumbled across this site today. I'm pretty excited about it and wanted to say hi. I discovered I have an almost consuming desire to learn the ins and outs of hardening information systems so curious minds like my own can't have access to them. They say knowledge is power....effective leverage of that knowledge is really the key in my opinion.
I'm in the process of a BS in Info Systems security, and self-studying for a CCNA cert on the side. I have dabbled with html and python. I know just enough to break stuff really.
I want ask forgiveness, in advance, for: stupid post, already answered questions, and general ignorance. The payoff is that one day I'll be one of you helping out some other new guy so you won't have to.
All advice and criticism is welcome if will improve my level of knowledge.
