My interests change sometimes from day to day other times it takes weeks.

I have programmed in C,C++, C#, JavaScript, Java, Python, Ruby, Perl, PHP, BASIC, TI-BASIC, and Z80. I have written markup in, HTML, and XML. I've also used CSS. For datastores I've worked with MSSQL, MySQL, and JSON. Thus far C is the language with my favorite syntax. My least favorites in order of most hate toward; Ruby, Java, Perl, C#, Python, JavaScript, and C++. I'm currently working in SQL(in MySQL), PHP, HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. To help make JavaScript more bearable I'm using the jQuery library along with jQuery UI for some ui actions.

I prefer to write purely procedural code as much as possible. I see no reason to use abstractions like objects, and classes. I think that it makes the code much uglier and is not worth the extra cpu operations. I also hate using camelCase and prefer to only do variable_name or variable-name.

My priorities are Stability, Security, Performance then Readability in that order. I use a coding style similar to the linux kernel's handbook for coding style. I also do not use vim, nor emacs since I think both are equally archaic and useless.

I only use Debian Testing for my desktop OS, and my mobile currently is a Blackberry 8330. I will soon be getting an android device that is as powerful as the Samsung Galaxy SII or better.

wait, so just so I understand this all. SRP would only allow me to have salts that the users or any potential hacker can ascertain correct? My previous comment was rather stupid and I'm going to delete it along with unedit my edited question.

I wanted the ability there to make it as hard as possible to have someone figure out the user's passwords once they get the database. I'm planning on using ssl/tls upon the time I'm officially releasing it, because I'd rather not pay for the certificate until it's ready to go out. So basically then, SRP is for non-ssl, and it provides next to no additional security to passwords at rest when compared to plain bcrypt with teh work factor cranked up as time goes on.
