Philip Young, aka Soldier of Fortran, is a mainframe phreak! His love of mainframes goes back to when he watched Tron, wide eyed, for the first time. Though it would be decades until he actually got his hands on one he was always interested in their strangeness. Phil has always been in to security since his days as a sysop and playing around on Datapac (the Telenet of Canada). Some people build toy trains, others model airplanes, but Phil’s hobby is mainframe security.
