I currently live in southern Sweden, where I'm studying computer security at the university. When I have my masters of scienc exam in said subject, I hope to start studying for a Ph.D in cryptography.

I spend a lot of time by the computer, for obvious reasons, and I program in multiple languages, mainly C++, PHP and Python. I do have interests other than computer science, however, and the ones to which I am most dedicated are martial arts (mainly Gung Fu and HEMA), games (computer, board and roleplaying games) and linguistics (preferably the study of extinct languages).

I am part of the StackExchange comminuty mainly to learn, but I will do my best to teach as well if I feel that I have something to offer.

You say "In general yes". Does this mean that there are exceptions, or was it just a figure of speech?

comment The use and historical authenticity of a 9 hook broadsword
Yes, it is. I'd estimate that it's about 9cm closest to the guard, and about 15-20cm at it's broadest. And I agree, it does resemble a guandao, even in blade length. Thank you once again, I will keep you posted if I discover something!

comment The use and historical authenticity of a 9 hook broadsword
Thanks a lot! It sounds to me that what you say might well be true. I will start looking for references and manuals of the 9 ring broadsword instead then!
