I rarely add or change much on my homenode because I'm not entirely convinced anyone ever reads it. Prove me wrong with a msg.

Msgs from: npecom, Stasik, corvus, Everyone2, Seraph XIII, bitriot (twice!), eien_meru, archiewood, spiregrain, Wiccanpiper, mauler, grundoon, passport, Posmella, futilelord, kelsorama, Ancientsnow, Augustine, Timeshredder, jessicaj, Feryl, dem bones, alex, tentative, and cassparadox.

Being proven wrong every now and again is a pleasant surprise. Keep those cards and letters coming!


  • February 7, 2014: My first decade on E2 comes to a close, leaving me with the same nagging question I had ten years ago...what is my role here?
  • February 7, 2009: Five years on E2. For various reasons, most notably the fulfillment of my writing urges through other venues, I'm a very infrequent contributor to E2 these days.
  • January 1, 2008: Major Matt Mason becomes my first writeup to earn double-digit C!s.
  • February 7, 2007: 3 years today...where have they gone?
  • December 3, 2006: I appear as the top noder in the Other Users nodelet at 7:58 server time. (Small potatoes, but still fun to think about.)
  • August 17, 2005: 1000 XP!
  • May 2005: Changes in level requirements suddenly bump me up to Level 2.
  • February 7, 2005: 1 year on E2 as a registered user.

My current favorite quote:

"You do your own thing in your own time. You should be proud."

-Wyatt "Captain America" Earp (Peter Fonda), in Easy Rider, 1969

Radar is:

  • A Corporal and the company clerk of the M*A*S*H 4077th
  • The use of radio waves to locate objects
  • Big Bird's teddy bear
  • A palidrome
  • Me

I stink at creating bios of myself but excel at creating bulleted lists. With apologies to swankivy...

  • I collect all types of stuff, but my Halloween, stamp, and flag collections are my favorites.
  • I have ADD.
  • I wrote a letter to George H.W. Bush in 1989...and he wrote me back!
  • My sister and my father have both met Little Richard.
  • I own six guns.
  • I hosted a weekly radio show on my college station for nearly five years.
  • I am fascinated by all religions, but stick to Protestant Christianity.
  • I share the same initials with three of the four people in my immediate family.
  • I've played the drums since 1997, but have never been a member of a real band.
  • My favorite group is The Ramones.
  • I am a magnet for strange people. Wal-Mart, gas stations, antique stores...weirdos just walk right up and tell me their life stories.
  • My favorite holiday is Halloween.
  • I have no interest in drinking alcohol. This has drawn the ire of a surprising number of people.
  • If you want a frighteningly realistic picture of what I look like, do an image search on Google for "Lupin III".
  • More bulletins as events warrant.
