Hikaru79 is possibly the nicest person one could ever meet. He is generous, fun, trusting, and always willing to help. He's also always good for an evil scheme or two. But those who partake in evil schemes often have evil scheming on them.
Hikaru79 has many computer related interests, which include trying to read the source for AI of games such as Go. Go is another one of Hikaru79's passions: he claims that when one begins to play Go, that individual will forfeit all hopes of doing well in school or other things, for it is highly addictive.
Hikaru79 enjoys Anime as much as the standard CompSci.ca member. He downloads loads of Anime and other things, including e-books. Hikaru79 claims that he has hundreds upon hundreds of gigabytes of files. He may even have reached the much fabelled terabyte.
Hikaru79 attends Vincent Massey Secondary School (VMSS, also EMSS: Evasive Maneuvers Secondary School), and is currently in grade 12. He intends to attent the University of Waterloo for computer science.
Hikaru79 is a rare specimen, in that he has combined his regular computer science and math/science courses with French. Curious.
