I was born in St.Paul MN, and have called Madison WI, home. I am a contractor, I install networking and test it. I spent most of last summer flying to many huge tourist spots, but this summer I spent home in Madison. I am also an experienced computer technician, and Electrical Engineer in training. Update: I hoped to return to school, but with two weeks to go I was purchased by a company, and so I now develop for a fortune 500 in St Louis. I am now looking to get know a few people here in the area, because I left behind all my friends in Wisconsin.
Note: If you see me in your visitors list, that's not an accident. I have paid for the extras package. Incognito is active, and I only leave footprints when I choose too. What this means to you is entirely your own choice. Hello, I am Raymond, and yes you can google me, I have nothing to hide.

I am a geek, but not a nerd. I am a square, and a strait edge. I don't drink or smoke, and I cannot stand the stink of weed, to me it's like burnt tires and crushed stink bugs.
I am looking for good conversation, kindred spirits, people who want to chat or hang out, people who share interests in technology, science, politics, games, ect. It would also be awesome to meet a few people to get together for hiking, bowling, mini golf, tennis, video games, etc versus simply sitting around talking.
I tend to talk a lot and if I am not paying attention to this, it can get out of hand. Those who are not experienced in -pushing in (bantering) or have little to no patience for talkers need not apply, been down this road. Best served are those who can keep up verbally, and we can share rapid fire. Maybe it's a learned skill, but it gets out far more info than waiting turns like dogs holding a biscuits on their noses. Have something to say, just say it! Like the difference between Old school 10/100 non duplex Ethernet, and 100/1000 Full Duplex. I am Full Duplex, and waiting for the other side to stop sending is forever, so i dont wait and neither should you.
I win games with my mind, not my fists.
- I have been able to make some pretty big tough guys (who were most certainly able to hurt me) drop to their knees, without a single fist thrown.
I always speak the truth, about what I think, how I feel, and what I saw, even when egos and emotions are on the line. Many people look at this like some kind of gift, a thing that is an ideal. But when faced with living like that, they eventually freak out. I think most people actually hate honestly and truth even though they all ask for it, and its quite pathetic really.
I am a pessimist. But I manage my stress better than most. My heart rate is text book, and my blood pressure too. Have made more than a few women jealous of my hair (no joke), and a health nuts grumbled about my good blood pressure, good health, low heart rate. But it's hardly magic. I just don't let things eat me alive like some people do, and yet I also do not lead my life oblivious to reality like some bubbly air head.
