Geek of Computer Science/Mass Communications/Information
Technology/Literature/Other. I'm usually in jeans and a t-shirt. I look up to
most people. Everyone tells me to gain a few pounds. Age: immortal. I'll be
first in line to get the new cybernetic interface installed into my skull. I
have a Unix account to do my stuff in. I know of Perl. I like Perl. I just
haven't learned much Perl, but it is on my agenda. I know what Linux is, but
that's about all. I am a WebMaster. Don't even think about trying to view my
homepage without the latest version of Netscape. When I'm not on my normal net
connection, I surf the web using my Newton and a cellular modem. I read news
recreationally when I have some time to kill. I have installed my own custom
sounds, wallpaper, and screen savers so my PC walks and talks like a fun house.
Oh yeah, I have a hundred TrueType(tm) fonts that I've installed but never used.
I never lose Minesweeper and Solitaire. Macs do more than suck. They make a user
stupid by allowing them to use the system without knowing what they are doing.
Mac weenies have lower IQs than the fuzz in my navel. Legalize drugs! Abolish
the government. "Fuck the draft!" Distrust both government and business. I have
an interest and concern in privacy issues, but in reality I am not really all
that active or vocal (cypherpunks). I feel that the glory of the Internet is in
the anarchic, trusting environment that so nurtures the exchange of information.
Encryption just bogs that down. Star Trek's a damn fine TV show and is one of
the only things good on television any more. Babylon 5: Finally a show that
shows what a real future would look like. None of this Picardian "Let's talk
about it and be friends" crap. And what's this? We finally get to see a
bathroom! Over on that Enterprise, they've been holding it for over seven years!
X-Files: Ho hum. Just another Fox show. Role-Playing? That's just something to
do to kill a Saturday afternoon. I watch some tv every day. I consume a few
books a week as part of a staple diet.
I've received mail from Scott Adams. I'm in the DNRC (Dogbert's New Ruling
Class). Doom: It's a fun, action game that is a nice diversion on a lazy
afternoon. The Geek Code: I know what each letter means, but sometimes have to
look up the specifics. Haven't finished High School. I am stuck living with my
parents! I've never had a relationship. Female, not having sex by choice.
