This piece of art is the personal homepage of Øyvind Skaar. Currently it's mostly a collection of links and aggregated information from other places on the net, and of course, a testing ground for whatever I'm interested in at the moment.
Until recently I was a graduate student at the University of Oslo and University Graduate Center (UNIK). In my thesis I looked at security problems in massively multiplayer games and the use of trusted computing to fix them (pdf).
Security have been a interest and hobby for a long time. Especially computer security, but physical as well.
Right now videos from Defcon 18 are on the way \o/ (but not yet).
(that is, "modern" perl, not cgi scripts from '90)
After writing perl for a little while it has become my favourite language.. Sure, Ruby and Python are fun as well, but they do lack.. something.
Because RDBMS' suddenly are useless ;)
Often think it would be cool to know some js and jquery or maybe yui, so I got some reading material.. have to see where it leads
There's (going to be) some code at was.id.ly/coding as well as bitbucket and/or github. I'm currently quite active on Stackoverflow.
