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 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.

@Daniel: Looking at symptoms for that I don't match. Good to know that its there though. I think I just over did it -- Strava at least is calling the first big ride "Extreme" and the last "Tough". (To my understanding those are based on heart rate)

Hmm... I don't think I'd describe this as "painful stabs." But didn't think I'd keep getting "sore spells" like this after being back in the saddle for a couple of months. +1

:sigh: I wish it was regional. Seems to be mostly in my shoulders but really is pretty much everywhere. Just been a couch potato for too long.

comment Why has indexed shifting displaced traditional friction shifting?
@DanielRHicks: Hmm.. that sounds like it's solve most of my problems. I'll take a look next time I'm looking for a new bike... Still kind of frustrating that this is only available with expensive hardware :(
