Hi, I'm Allen, often known as orion and washort on some IRC nets and MUDs....
I'm a computer science student at Samford University in Birmingham, Alabama
I'm YALG who broke free from Microsoft's crappy operating systems about 2 years ago, and&.since have enjoyed the unbelievable ecstacy of things like TeX, Emacs, vi, MH, X, and just generally following The Unix Way.

Currently, i'm helping the Jabber project achieve world domination.
I enjoy programming and my favorite languages are Haskell, Mercury, Mozart/Oz, Perl, Smalltalk, Objective-C, and Perl. C++ is evil and should perish as its ancestor PL/I did.

I've never heard of Brian Eno.
