Just so you both know, you're being catfished by the OP. Not for a 
date mind you, but for a demonstration of your technical knowledge. 
If he decides that you have enough for online stalking purposes, he 
may attempt to recruit you to assist him in 'hunting down bad guys'

I'd advise both of you to visit this link before further interaction 
with him. It may save you some time and aggravation down the road. 
Make no mistake, providing him any personal information about 
yourself is NOT in your best interests.

Don't become the next David Brooks cyberstalking victim! 
Visit (10/10 WOT)  
to learn more. If you've already become a victim or know someone who 
has, you can provide the following information to them, your lawyer, 
local law enforcement, etc. - His local police. Report?
