I enjoy reading technical stuff, such as: Paul Graham's essays; Programming in the 21st Century; Lambda Papers; The Pragmatic Programmer; and my SICP book has just arrived. I also enjoy reading non-technical stuff. Recently I have read: The Dark Tower series; Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrel; and the Millennium series.
My favourite musicians are (in no particular order): Elliott Smith, Sam Cooke, Lior, Pat Kirtley, John Martyn, Bob Fox, et al. One musician I'm particularly enjoying is the relatively unknown Emily Bishop.
I am Markus. I enjoy reading papers and articles on computer science.
I enjoy hacking. I especially enjoy reading about hacking. I hope one day to be a good hacker, an ethical hacker. I'm also interested in Free Software. I do not think the things we own should in turn own us. Software that restricts your freedom is unethical software. I'm not completely realizing this ideology - it's difficult to go from meat eater to vegan in one step. I'll get there, both to freedom and veganism.
Other things not totally unrelated to hacking that I enjoy are: playing (mainly finger-style, celtic) guitar; and listening to music and sailing. I am also learning German and Portuguese in my spare time (i.e., when I can be bothered).

My editor of choice is Emacs!
Totem plugin: Hide Pointer. You're probably thinking why aren't you using VLC? No reason. I just like Totem; however, I don't like that it doesn't hide my pointer when I'm watching some movie. Thankfully, Totem is totally tackable! Here is an hours worth of fumbling through Totem and Gtk+'s documentation and 10 minutes of hacking together some Python. Good job!
