There are 10 types of people: those who understand binary, and those who don't.

I go by the nick ciupicri in other places.

My CV is available on the Careers SE.

I also help newbies on the #coding-n00bs channel on freenode. Feel free to reach me over there if you can't or don't want to use the Stack Exchange chat.
