QUICK. CRAZY. LIMITLESS.
Hello there, my name is Shiv Kokroo. Yes, you read that last name right, it's weird. I am on a mission to make the world a better place through the creative use of technology, one day at a time.

Frequently Asked Questions :
1Who are you?
2Who do you think you are?
No one of consequence.
3Where is all of your code?
I tend to keep my code private because there have been too many instances of people ripping off my code.
4Are you a hacker?
Before I answer that, you must understand what a hacker really is. I urge you to Google the difference between hackers and crackers. Yes, I am a hacker indeed but I do not indulge in it frequently nor am I even remotely close to a professional hacker.
5What language do you code in usually?
Python, because it is simple and easy to code in. If my code works perfectly in Python, I port it to C or C++ for faster speed.
6Why was BRAINIAC pulled down?
The APIs that I used for BRAINIAC changed drastically and I never updated the code, so I took it down. I do not intend to update it since Siri, Google Now and Cortana have taken over the market and are 100x better than BRAINIAC in most cases.
