I first learned the basics of C by myself and a little help from friends, after that I learned C++ at school, php, MYSQL, and so on.

I'm a big fan of the KISS principle.

I don't like languages like java, C#, javascript, but am a big fan of python.

I still have to learn to do some good haskell.

I'm currently making a 3D game with Ogre3D and bullet with my free time. I intend to make a minimalist RPG where you can harvest different types of material and scraps, and learn to build new things for your survival and the worker you hire.

I'm also thinking about a level editor to make very big levels with the help of procedural generation. After using Enet as a networking library, I'll release my new MMOFPS and make millions of dollars. But I should maybe find a job first.

I'm also interested in maths and cryptography, but I don't master those subjects.

comment How can we reason about the cryptographic capabilities of code-breaking agencies like the NSA or GCHQ?
Yes I guess that seems to fit better, at least if people answers ! Thanks for reinterpreting the question ! I guess that's what I wanted to ask about "other techniques than differential cryptanalysis"

comment Dictionary attack on pass-phrases on common algorithms
But of course this doesn't apply to website's passwords, since you can prevent dictionary attacks. I just ask this question because I think one day OSes will be clustered across users machines, and we will need to encrypt data, and thus password choice could matter.

comment Dictionary attack on pass-phrases on common algorithms
Like I said in other comments, I'm not thinking about a 1000-words list, but I'm rather suggesting the user to choose common words, because I'll ask him to use a password with at least 24 characters (minimum 16 characters if words used are short). You can't explain encryption to users, but the encryption is defeated if one can easily find the password of 80% of users. It is commonly known that most passwords in the world have 6+ characters. What XKCD shows is that we should tell users to use pass phrases, not pass words, and tell them we can't secure their data if they don't listen.
