when it needs to be broken


I'm NTAuthority, known legally as Bas Timmer. I'm 23 years old, from the Netherlands, and a software developer, or at least, people think I'm the latter.

Obligatory non-professional information

However much it might seem that I am not, I am still a person, and have a physical presence as well. Here's some fun details.

That's all.
