Well, what can I say. I'm still new to hacking as a whole (though I spent some time using the good ol' LOIC against sites on their owners' requests, but that doesn't really count as hacking now, does it?), but when I found out that this operation exists, I knew that this is what I really wanted to do.
Before I joined, though, I made sure that my hardware was up-to-date, so it took a while before I have actually joined this. In the meantime, though, I was lurking on these message boards and tried to get a general idea of what's going on here; I'm pretty sure at least some of you have noticed me.
Anyway, I've done some research on Samsara today, and found a target that might be interesting. I'd like to have a closer look at it before I'll show it to everyone here. You know, just to make it completely sure that it doesn't have a virus that melts computers hidden within those security systems.
(OOC: I heard that Exploit was getting a sequel a few days ago, instantly went crazy over it, and was lurking in these forums for the past 3 days, reading every IC thread in existence ("lurking" isn't really a good way to put it, since I have posted 2 times in here as well already) before I got the e-mail with the code that gave me access to the alpha.)
(Also, I'm preparing a cluster that will be... let's say pretty tricky. Stay tuned. )
