Other Random stuff about me

  • If you feel some bizzare need to talk to me, either /msg me, or better yet, get on IRC and find me in #everything.
  • I spend most of my waking moments in front of a computer. It's not really by choice, but it's the only thing I'm good at.
  • I am a Metallica nut. I've seen them in concert about 15-20 times. Old stuff, new stuff, it doesn't matter to me. Hands down the best value for the concert dollar.
  • Lego is more that a toy. Lego is life. Lego is love.
  • I'm a geek. Big time. In my home office, I've got three computers constantly on. I've also got four more in various stages of buildup/teardown. My house is wired for ethernet, and we have a total of nine computers on the network, not including my four toy computers.
  • Music is a big part of my life. We have 14 gigs of mp3s, all ripped from the original CDs. They are all stored on a linux box in my office and accessed via samba or nfs, so no matter which computer I'm on, I can get my music.
  • My wife and children are my world.
