The Chinese are infiltrating. They've even taken over the LPGA tour.
He's climbin in your windows

Hide your disks, Hide your drives. Hide your disks,
Hide your drives. Hide your disks,
Hide your disks, Hide your drives. Hide your /dev/null,
Cuz they're /sbin/dump -0u -f /dev/st0 /usr/src errbody out here
He forgot to wipe.
Yeah, what are the odds of this evidence not being planted?
"Alpha" code for beta channel stuffing? The irony...
Yeah, no kidding. Found in the sewer?! Geez, not to mention, putting any hard disk or memory stick in the microwave for about 10 seconds would frazzle any data on the drive, regardless of where you flush it later. Note to self: never hawk your programming talents at Citadel.
No, It will not. You have to physically destroy the media containing the data. The blender for a memory stick, Tree-shredder for harddrives. Or burn them. But this takes time and preparation.
In the defence gear I worked with they had a "thermite pack": A sealed aluminium tube filled with thermite then routed to larger pouches of thermite around the secret bits. The case was high in magnesium too. Even then there was a $$$ "Hammer and Nail" tool permanently attached. Using the hammer on the "nail", one was supposed to punch out specific locations to smash the chips underneath, while being overrun and supposedly with the thermite ignition countdown running for assured destruction.
The microwave just fries the electronics on a HDD. Then They will take the platters out and plonk them in an identical HDD, which may be the best outcome for all parties concerned because this saves Them & You the inconvenience of putting you in some shithole like Bagram and rubberhosing the data out of you!
you can't wipe a drive...coercivity is so high on those that you will mechanically damage the platters before you actually erase the bits. You have to melt/burn the things
Pu was flushed from the inside.
There once was a boy named Pu
He worked for a fund but wasn't a Jew
So when the shit hit the fan
He quickly got canned
Due to hard drives found in doo-doo!
Their work belongs in the sewer.
Citadel security doesn't take crap from anyone.
Citadel generally is not an outfit to get on the wrong side of.
Banks are the only ones allowed to steal. Steal from them or crooksrus.com, look out.
So while TPTB scramble to track down Lulsec "cyber terrorists" who launch the occasional DDOS attack, here we have companies like Citadel that no longer have anything to do with sound financial analysis but are nothing more than institutionalized, subsidized, legalized hackers who seek to exploit the electronic medium of financial markets on the backs of the rest of the investing world. Not because they undertand fundamentals, or do rigorous analysis, but because they hire Chinese programmers to write their scam code. What a joke.
American Finance Association slogan: "We move bits around--and that's about fuck all. so you don't have to."
If he marries Karen Yu and she hyphenates her last name, she will be Mrs. Yu-Pu
Don't forget Fook Mi and Fook Yu!
Maybe he can go back to China to design sinking riverboats.
Ben Pu, meet Hu Flung Dung in Shawshank..
And don't forget Kum Fum Sum Yung Gai.
Probably related to Won Hung Lo...
Frontrunning and screwing retail investors adds SUCH value to our economy. We need more businesses like this, then surely the current robust recovery will only become more accelerated.
I remember when frontrunning was illegal. That was when the NASD back-office examiners had AEM on their laptops instead of tranny-porn.
When the SEC says they are "working hard" most people don't take their meaning properly.
too bad this was stopped as there were many Obamanits waiting to bankroll the startups that would bring 10s of yobs before the next donation cycle peaks.
eating our seed corn bichezzzzz
And I'm *sure* they compensated Mr. Pu fairly, from their point of view (giggle). Citadel is neither the first, nor the last hedge fund that's getting the rather expensive lesson that when it comes to programmers and quants, you have to pay to play and that means trader sized compensation and/or an equity stake for the programmer.
Get it, or go down in flames.
For are smart as some these people are it's suprising they throw out their hard drives into the sewer without writing zero's to them first. Hell, stick some magnets to the drive before you toss it out. Also, what the heck was it doing in the sewer and not his PC at home?
Mr. Pu thought it would be safer in the sewer, with his relatives.
smart and seeming white hot stupidity exist in all,,,,,that's humans for ya!
Most smart people are not smarter than "normal people" when working outside of their domain, but they naturally still think that they are smarter than everyone else; a common expert fallacy. Investment advisers and other salespeople *love* that trait in highly-paid people.
Maybe the guy was planning to sell each "alpha" for $20 million a pop to Huen Shue (well known chinese government agent)
Bullish for shit.
Here's the code right here:
while( Ponzi == true )
SPY->Buy( rand() % 100 );
// Ponzi = false;
now works for Apple so they wont get much luck with apple employers, he redesign the code into the SIRI and now he does all his trades by simply speaking to an iphone
with a first name like Yihao, i woulda suggested he keep his name yeeeeehooowwpuuu! just for the piratical beuaty of it all
I hate to Pu Pu your idea, but with a name like that some may find it arrogant in a way, almost as if he thought his pu didn't stink.
Anyone remember Bang Dae Ho?
He and Ben are actually gay lovers and getting married in NYC this week. They will be hyphenating, something Bang Dae Pu-Ho has been looking forward to for a long time.
I've been hanging around sanitary canals for a long time and I've never found a hard drive filled with awesome algos. Must be digging through the wrong shit.
Yeah, I think on that Dirty Jobs show they had an episode about the Citadel Recovery Team (tm).
We should go back to the system based on 8's and 16' instead of pennies. That would throw a wrench into their operations
...and $2 brokers.
Sounds like ol' Ben was under constant surveillance...
Engineering and computer department at all banks are 99% asians with thick bifocals all stuffed in 2 floors in Jersey City.
Hard drives dumped into the Chicago River...Nice work....
A scuba-diving Rahm found them at the bottom while he was looking for some more voters for the next election
what was on them?
