Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am much too complex to describe in a single paragraph, but what
the heck I'm willing to try. I'm a techno-geek of the software
variety. I have been very active in various on-line communities
since the early 80s. I'm very tall
(6 foot 8 inches) and the
last time my book collection
was measured 8
cubic meters. I'm married but separated, have 2 great kids, and it
was my wife's suggestion that I sign up here. N.B. My wife and
children live in town in their home, and I live in the hills
overlooking Lake Austin.
I do spend a significant amount of time with my kids.
*laughs* You know you're a geek when you spot unit conversion
errors on OkCupid and wonder how to report it. Height: 6' 8"
(2.3m). No, I'm not 7'7", and yes I have reported it. Much better,
they now have the decimal correctly placed.
One of my pet peeves is when an author confuses english with metric
units. "He pulled out his 45 mm automatic pistol" Yah, right.
I am separated, poly, and kinky
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm doing pretty much what I want to do. I've got two fabulous
daughters. My health is doing quite well. In the past 8 months I've
dropped 50 lbs, and am exercising 5 hours a week. This has been
Take care of those you call your own And keep good company
All that is gold does not glitter, Not all those who wander are
lost; The old that is strong does not wither, Deep roots are not
reached by the frost.
I taught you everything you know. But I didn't teach you everything

Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Solving problems. Writing software. Taking care of my family and
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
It is not possible to have a favorite book. I usually carry
multiple unread books with me because I never know what I might
want to read next. But I always want to be able to read something.
I'm very much into Fantasy and Science Fiction, as well as
technical and historical fiction and historical non-fiction, and

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
-- My daughters: They keep me living, both figuratively and
-- a good library: preferably mine, and I do lend books.
-- synthroid: Nine years ago my thyroid was removed with extreme
prejudice and I will die a horrible death without my synthroid. So
much for my post-apocalyptic daydreams.
-- darkest chocolate: I self medicate with chocolate.
-- my yard: Soaking in the hottub at 2:00 AM listening to the

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
No, really ... I did research in Artificial Intelligence for many
years, and at times I've very introspective about how my brain is
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Home alone, or out with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Hmm ... when 100,000+ people are intimately aware of your sexual
interests its hard to consider much of anything private. I've been
very active and open in many alternative sexuality communites both
online and in the real world.
According to my profile, and pretty much anyone who knows me, I'm
way non-agressive, very compassionate, extremely non-cruel, and
extremely kinky. The translation is that I'm basically a service
switch, and very good at it too. If you want to know what that
means, feel free to ask.
