About Me

Ken Johnson (otherwise known as Skywing) is a Windows software programmer (both professionally, and for fun), and a former Microsoft SDK MVP.  His interests include Windows software and driver development, debugging, reverse engineering, and World of Warcraft.

Ken is currently employed at a certain software outlet in Redmond (though this blog is owned by him and not his employer).  In addition to working, blogging, and formerly playing World of Warcraft, Ken occasionally authors articles for the Uninformed.org journal. As far as programming goes, Ken’s current interests are primarily with NT internals, security-related subjects (including exploitation and counterexploitation), and reverse engineering of software protection mechanisms.

Nynaeve al’Meara is a main character in Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time series, who brought talents previously thought impossible to common use in the world.  Lately, I’ve been using Wheel of Time characters and places for my current naming theme, hence the blog name.

To contact me, you could either drop me an email ( skywing[at]valhallalegends<dot>com ) or send me a message via MSN Messenger. (Note that you’ll need to include some sort of contact information if you use the MSN Messenger notifier mechanism, as otherwise I will be unable to reply to you.)
