I don't want to start a discussion about your validity, and it is not my
intention to discredit you in any way. According to your resume you are
doing some cool stuff (although more focused on hardware apparently). 

I think what raises concern is that your buddy Ian Martin describes you
as a "H4x0r gra|\|d3". There is no need for you to confirm your identity
when MIT's servers give plenty of information about you. I hope all goes
well for your graduation this summer.

As for the code, have you tried catching the bug with a honeypot? I
heard of people using netcat listening on port 3127 to catch the bug...

Regards,
Frank
