I was one who founded the "Computerra" team and used to be its captain. Now I'm a patron of it staying its member.

Occasionally I get requests for a CV or bio or something, as if that were important in some way. Well, here's my bio:
Sam Savinov arrived on earth some eons ago when his physical essence filtered down from the stars, and he took human(?) form. Lingering for awhile on the plateau of Xen while waiting for the apes to evolve, he eventually mingled among human society, generally without being detected, although the century he spent staked out in a peat bog in RU was rather unpleasant and not something he'd care to repeat. Once computers were invented he became involved in security research in the hope that enough insider knowledge would, at the right time, allow him to bypass electronic security measures on the first translight spacecraft and allow him to return to the stars. This is probably still some time away. Until then he spends his time as a researcher at the Fetxp Inc., poking holes in security systems, and throwing rocks at PKIs.
Now you know.


I'm married, also have two wonderful kids...
I like fishing and active rest, undoubtly to my favourite music.
I like computers, music and butterflies---among other things.

Political notes

"Those who profess to favor freedom, yet depreciate agitation, are men who want crops without plowing up the ground. They want rain without thunder and lightning. They want the ocean without the awful roar of its many waters. This struggle may be a moral one; or it may be a physical one; or it may be both moral and physical; but it must be a struggle. Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will." Frederick Douglass is a personal website. Opinions expressed are not necessarily those of Fetxp Inc.
