my nickname is wowaname, my real name is opal hart, and my legal name is something I don't want to talk about. I have strong interests in technology, security, communications, and personal freedom. not much else about me is immediately important unless you get to know me.

this site has always primarily served as a file dumping-ground but I am now experimenting with a blog that others should find interesting. it has undergone multiple redesigns and hopefully I am happy with this redesign, even if you aren't.

I hope you're able to take something useful out of my work.
