Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I’m a computer programmer by hobby and by trade. I’ve been
fascinated by these devices and what can be done with them since I
was a child. They’ve repaid the attention well.
I’m an amateur photographer. I bought myself a decent camera some
years ago and have been clicking away happily ever since. My photos
can be found on flickr, tumblr and my own website.
I've mostly been read history lately, though I’ve amassed a great
deal of SF over the years too, among other bits and pieces.
Political biographies occasionally catch my attention too;
politicians are a lot less dull when writing for posterity rather
than speaking for the headlines. (I can’t help but feel that on the
whole they were much more interesting in the 1980s.)
I’ve managed to grow a few edible or attractive things in the
garden. Most recently: sugar snap peas and strawberries.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work for a large company, writing and debugging computer
My hobby programming has gone in all sorts of directions but most
recently I’ve been interested in doing things that produce some
kind of visually pleasing result - photomosaics and fractals, for
I share a house with my girlfriend; we are poly. I’m looking for
anything from a new friend to a new relationship.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I occasionally have some luck with pointing a camera in the right
direction. At least two people here are using pictures I’ve taken
on their profile (no, neither of them are me)...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I’m not sure I really do favorites. There’s so much I haven’t seen
(read, etc) and so much that hasn’t even been created yet. But some
things I do keep coming back to. Trainspotting, The Big Lebowski,
Heathers and the three Star Wars films are old friends, as are Red
Dwarf and Blackadder. Dipping less far back into time, I could
happily watch Buffy The Vampire Slayer from start to finish
Things I've enjoyed recently:
- TV: Game Of Thrones and Community
- Film: Burn After Reading, One Night At McCool's
- Fiction: Ancillary Justice (Leckie), God's War (Hurley), the
Sarantine Mosaic (Kay)
- History: The Last Empire (Plokhy), Jerusalem (Montefiore)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Books, computers, company, err.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Most recently, probably watching an episode or two of Orphan Black
or the latest DVD to arrive in the post.
