I'm a Microsoft Software Development Engineer on the Trustworthy Computing Team. I've worked at several security related places previously, including Malware Bytes and PreEmptive Solutions.

On StackOverflow I mostly answer related questions, though I occasionally forray into and a couple of others.

I am the author of pevFind, a component of the ComboFix malware removal tool, and volunteer at BleepingComputer.com as a malware response instructor. My Twitter account is @MalwareMinigun.

comment What is the purpose of the plastic disk between the cassette and the rear wheel?
@Daniel: If only I had known to search for "spoke guard". On the other hand if I'd have known that I'd not have had to ask the question :)

comment How long do Garmin's cycling GPS devices take to get an initial GPS lock?
:sigh: That's annoying. Guess I have to rig up a waterproof cell phone holder thing then :)

Why would one want to remove it? I mean, it seems to be a pain in the ass to keep clean, but beyond that...

Erm, I would hope that a friction shifter wouldn't be adjusted such that this would be necessary...

comment How can I prevent or mitigate the front wheel coming off the ground when climbing steep hills?
@Glenn: I'm not sure. I don't have any equipment for measuring this. Suffice to say this is the steepest hill I've ever been on :) (Specifically, climbing Denny Way up into Capitol Hill in Seattle)

@Kibber: I'm hardly ever in the drops. Will have to see if that'll work.

It seems like this would be moving the handlebars down relative to the seat; but if I do too much of that I start having neck issues.

Indeed -- if a gear was made which would let me pedal this particular hill smoothly that'd probably help a bunch :P

comment Why ride a fixed-gear bike?
@Useless: I'm saying that there's nothing about derailleur gears, as a technology, that forces the chainrings or cassette to be thinner. I'm not saying that they are the same thickness in practice.

comment Ouch, I'm really sore. Should I take a break for a while? How long?
@Unsliced: Okie dokie :) I will meditate on Rule #5.
