Tell Us About Yourself...
Say hello, and tell us a bit about yourself!
“I'm just your average geek. Lives mostly indoors, plays with computers, etc. I sometimes dabble with weather interests or take pictures of things that fascinate me. But by and large, I just surf the internet looking for new knowledge to absorb.”
What do you do for fun?
“For the most part, I play with computers. I also like to read books and watch movies. During the spring/summer, I track weather phenomena like severe thunderstorms and hurricanes, while in the fall, it's football season (Go Ravens!)”
What do you do? You know- job, school, freelance sorcery, etc.
“I'm your stereotypical IT guru working, paying taxes, and suffering from long commutes.”
What's your dream job?
“Not 100% sure yet. Storm chasing would be fun, but I've got that dreadful feeling that I'm going to wind up in management somehow. Probably in IT somewhere.”
Tell a funny story about yourself, or about something funny you own!
“Oh, probably my collection of old Silicon Graphics hardware might amuse a few folks. An Octane, several O2s, an Origin 300, a rare R8000-based Power Indigo2 system, Tezro, and now an Onyx2.”
Who Are You Looking For?
Which gender are you interested in?
“Guys or girls!”
Describe the sort of person you're looking for!
“That's a good question really. Probably anyone who can hold a good, thought-provoking conversation that might offer a different perspective on things.”
Do you think long distance relationships can work?
“Each to their own, I say. They are not for the faint of heart, but those who put forth the effort can make them succeed.”
Anime, Manga and Other Nerdy Stuff
Name some of your favorite anime and manga...
“Cowboy Bebop, Serial Experiments: Lain, Ghost in the Shell, Jin-Roh, & Spirited Away. I also dig "American" cartoons like Looney Tunes and Tom & Jerry, because they are classics.”
What's some of your favorite music? What have you been listening to lately?
“Anything in the "Epic", a.k.a., movie trailer music, genre. E.S. Posthumus, Two Steps From Hell, The Immediate, and Les Friction. Then there's metal, rock, folk, vocal trance, celtic, bagpipes, etc..”
What are some anime/manga/gaming-related interests you have? Watching anime, cons, collecting cels, etc...
“As far as anime goes, collecting the DVD sets of the good series or movies (Miyazaki, Oshii, etc..). Ditto for good TV series/movies. Gaming, mostly RPGs. FPS or RTSes are good too, if there's a great storyline associated with it.”
If you go to conventions, what upcoming cons are you attending?
“Never really been big on cons.”
Into games? List your favorites!
“Pretty much all things Nintendo. I know way too much about that company for my own good. Then there's StarCraft, Half-Life, and Portal, plus RPGs like FF XII & Xenogears. Old-fashioned board games are great as well, like Monopoly or Clue.”
