I'm an Astrophysicist that couldn't resist the creative allure of front-end code. I've specialized in HTML, CSS, and JavaScript since 2001, and can hold my own with PHP and MySQL.

My projects of choice are interactive apps and widgets - jQuery, Canvas, HTML5 video, etc - but I enjoy getting my hands in anything intricate and interesting. I aspire to publish games using the platforms I'm continually mastering.

comment Console vulnerabilities in javascript-based game
@oberhamsi thanks for the input - I'm aware that no client-side code is truly safe. My question is more along the lines of "is it just as easy to overwrite a function as it is to overwrite a variable?"

comment Console vulnerabilities in javascript-based game
Thanks for the answer dreta. My new mantra is "never trust the client", so I'm aware that I can't expect any javascript to be secure. I'd read conflicting articles - some stating that code can be directly overwritten, and some stating that code has to be ripped, modified and hosted externally in order to be overwritten. Just trying to get a feel for what kind of exploits take what level of dedication.

Maybe I'll rephrase it to address that problem directly =)
