My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hello. I am Torrie.

For your convenience, I have prepared a list of useful facts about me:

* I am a computer scientist specializing in multimedia, graph theory, and artificial intelligence
* Lotz of work with KDE, Linux, GStreamer, and such
* No I don't use Ubuntu, I use Fedora
* Many people call me the most mellow person they have ever met
* Professional cat herder and FOSS software engineer
* Got kicked out of UA's computer science department. Got the degree anyway.
* Started a hackerpace in Akron, Ohio. Banned from it three years later. Started another.
* Lots of Slack
* Self-confidence is off the charts
* Got a key to another hackerspace through calculus and a CNC mill.
* Builds robots n shit

I am currently accepting applications for the positions of arch-rival and partner in crime. Sorry but the plot device opening has been recently taken. All positions require a minimum of three years experience in dick jokes and a degree in badassery. Partner in crime requires additional on-site experience. Relocation not necessary.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Good question. I recently ejected from my hometown of Akron, Ohio after being banned from the hackerspace I started and subsequently harassed by the toxic people involved.

Forging onward in a different corner of the world with people who genuinely care about me seems to be my current direction.

I have a nearly uncontrollable urge to hack everything. If it has a warranty I will void it.

I hack. Ban me.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
You're asking me to form an opinion about my own skills, which I cannot easily do from my own point of reference. However, others have said I'm good at:

* Linux
* Getting shit done
* Making friends
* Working with free software
* Automotive repair
* Carpentry
* Mechanical Engineering
* Multimedia
* Software Engineering
* Cat herding
* Seeing the good in all humans
* System Administration
* Living cheaply
* Science, bitches.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My smile. My tone that magically instills positivity. The way that I fill the lives of others with a bright, bright light.

I am also six feet tall with red hair. Thats hard to miss.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Reading, some of which are actually books: Daemon and the sequel Freedom(tm), Dresden Codak, God's Debris, The Network Revenant.

Movies: Die Hard, Mindgame, Ghost In The Shell.

Shows: 30 Rock, Bravest Warriors, Adventure Time, MLP:FiM, Parks and Rec, Eureka Seven, Eden of the East, many others.

Music: Anamanaguchi. Chiptunes. Music that is mathematically beautiful.

Food: Yes please.

Other shibboleths: A good way to make me fall head over heels is if you have read The Network Revenant, Why the Willow Weeps, and numerous other nodes. I have a soft spot for futurism and cyborgs, which makes Major Kusanagi one of my heros. Trains are pretty neat especially underground. One day I will become a tree's nutrients and this brings me happiness.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
0. My Laptop
1. My Phone
2. The people I hold close

There is no 3-5.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to make things more efficient. I am a hacker, through and through. I have this odd tic of mine, where I quietly grunt while I'm thinking. Friends say it is the gears in my head turning 'round and 'round. The ads on OkCupid seem to think I need another 3d printer and to monitor exceptions in my apps.

There is a very good Dresden Codak comic about this that I feel is a good description of me.

I am unable to sit still for long. I am a restless soul with limitless determination.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Something. Every day is different. Maybe I'll do robots. Maybe go to karaoke, or a friend's, or another city. Perhaps writing, or code. Maybe stay in and enjoy the quiet of my neighborhood.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
MTF transgender. It is simply a minor facet of the complex idea of "Torrie", so its not something I readily talk about nor try to hide.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
