Hi all here.
I am a reverser since 1985.
I've been on different platforms for a long time
and found many old friends again.
Reverse engineering is my hobby
Best Regards

I started dabbling in reverse engineering ever since before the '90s, in the Z80 world. I used to be a member of some very well known scene groups in the '98-01 period back when SoftICE ruled the world and have been doing RE work as a hobby afterwards, as well as on a small-scale professional level since '09. I am currently a software developer, one of the very few (probably) that still has to write some assembler code every now and then.

Sounds like we started reversing at the same time.
What is name of the group? I am curious.

The highlight would be CLS/FLT. Was OGN before that and several relatively minor apps groups that I don't even remember the names of. I started reversing PC stuff around '96 or '97 with Phrozen Crew, heh.

Hello everybody,

my name is Peter and my alias is x000x since about 1995. At that time I developed more or less meaningless "tools" for AOL {America Online} in Delphi. (No, I'm not really proud of that ◔̯◔ )
That was my learning phase ... In 2000 I made my hobby to the profession, first in c under Linux, then long time in Delphi and since one year in C#.

I'm happy to be here

Man I miss those days... Nothing seems to have the raw power that SI use to have...

Yeah, I completely agree, the only downside was having to take notes on actual paper. I remember having notebooks full of seemingly random addresses.

I figure it wouldn't be impossible to make a similar kernel-level debugger nowadays, but the effort would probably be disproportionately large when compared to the payout so nobody really wants to do it. I'm guessing Compuware discontinued SI because it wasn't particularly lucrative.

Also, the fact that people are aging and leaving the industry.
Young people are not capable.
imho.

.. and the fact that the OS has become much more complicated over the last twenty years ..

The terminal forced people to have to learn before use. Now the touch screen and social media mania has seemed to create a generation whose focus is more convenient for political control than the area of computing. And as far as is told, businesses are feeling this already.

bytewolf 06-20-2018 03:47

Hi fellow board members,
my name is Manuel and I use the alias bytewolf since about 2010, maybe a few years prior. I'm interested in electronics and programming. I've started programming in Basic on my Breadbin C64 and on PC in Pascal back in the 90's. But now I mostly use C#, because it's convinient and runs on almost all platforms.

Since the beginning I'm interested in reverse engineering, mostly physical reversing, to see how things work. I hope I can learn more about it here and contribute as well.

Best regards

DavidXanatos 06-29-2018 03:55

I'm David Xanatos,

I'm into computing since I got a C64 at a young age.
I started properly programing using C/C++ around 2001, before than I was using basic, later visual basic or pascal.
Nowadays I mostly develop windows applications using C/C++ and also do some embedded development.

Cheers

Hello Friends
 
Hi by all,
Its Nir from India.Not a professional reverse engineer but can do many more things. started my computer programming career in late 00's with Win95 & Win98 and of course Turbo C++.

Havin wonderful knowledge in Industrial Automation\Embedded Programming.
and also 80x85,80x51,80x86 asm,.basic,vb,.net,scl etc....
Always ready to reverse engineer any app :)

Favorite tools: PeID, x64Dbg, 010Editor, InstantFileFind
Recently Cracked Programs :
GP PRo Ex, Phoenix Contact All SW Products, IDM, ModbusPoll, KepServerEX most all of this is related to my professional field.

hi i'm jimmy,
i'm newbie RE, so I hope that will learn more from this forum.
nice to meet you all.

Hello. Chuck here. I have always been fascinated by reverse engineering. I first got into modding video game maps when I was 15 or 16 back around 2005 or so. I have a software I use for work and I have wanted to get it working without a dongle for quite awhile now. About a year ago is when I actually started to sit down and work on it. I have been learning everything I can about hasp dongles. 2 months ago I was successful in using a script and finding the redirected IAT. I then found a guide that showed how to patch the envelope to get hasp to fix the IAT. My software was different but it got me going in the right direction. I am not interested in having someone do this for me. I have been taking my time so I can learn this myself.

Hi Guys.

I'm a middle aged guy who has started to program in x86 Assembler since 9y.o.
I dislike coding in anything that does not compile to machine code. I positively despise Java...and all things "bytecode".
IDA is the name of my daughter
I also have a background in physics, electronics and chemistry. My work was always at the edge where hardware and software meet. Ever since I executed an OUT instruction and saw the LED turn on...I was hooked.
