    Hey BlackHatWorld, what's up? I'm a programmer that has been making private Internet Marketing software for clients for the past few years. I just recently came across BHW, and well, here I am. This place looks like it's a decent little community that has been helping people thrive in online business for a long while and I'm quite excited to be a part of it now. Hopefully you'll all come to know me in time, as I plan on starting a website soon to publicly sell my software; until then, here's a bit about me...

    Video games have been the biggest influence in my life, and are directly responsible for my ability to develop software. I first started programming when I was around 11 or 12 using a program called Game Maker and its built-in programming language GML to make little games and applications; I was inspired to do this as I, in my childlike enthusiasm, wanted to create my own RuneScape (a game that killed my grades because I became so addicted to it). I then moved to Pawn while making a number of plugins for a video game by the name of Counter-Strike 1.6, and subsequently taught myself a little bit of C++ that I on-and-off toyed with to make little command line applications for a while; during this time I also learned the scripting language used by AutoHotKey and became quite good at creating scripts to automate tasks. I then took up a hearty addiction to World of Warcraft at age 14 or 15 and met someone who did a lot of internet marketing and programming, and he got me into the same things. After writing my first few pieces of Internet Marketing software in native C++, where I used AutoHotKey scripts to serve as GUIs because I was unable to force myself into learning the ugly Win32 API for C++, I moved to Visual C++ and the .NET framework (a huge improvement). After working in Visual C++ for a while, I made the move to C# - which I now swear by as it is the most beautiful and organized language I have ever come across.

    tl;dr I'm in need of posts so I can respond to my PMs. Here's a +1 to my post count.
