My name is Austin Hartzheim. I write open source software, reverse engineer network protocols, and advocate for privacy. I am also a computer science student and the director of MadHacks, UW-Madison's national hackathon.
Here are some current and previous projects:
- Cheesecake - This software was written for my current employer and it works with the Microsoft RMS/POS software. While working on this project, I reverse-engineered large portions of the Microsoft RMS/POS database format and wrote software which automates day-to-day actions within the business, saving countless hours of data-entry.
- python3-qmbl - This Python module is being developed to parse the QMBL files produced by Vernier''s LabQuest device. The parsing code will be able to extract information about the type of censor used and provide easy access of the data collected by each sensor. More information about the scope of this project can be found on its page.
Here are some additional projects:
- Microsoft RMS/POS database documentation - To date, I believe that this is the only substantial, public documentation about the Microsoft RMS/POS database structures. I have spent many hours reverse engineering and documenting the structure of the database tables.
