Anyways, the short version is that I'm a sysadmin, tabletop gamer and metalhead. I scream into a tin can connected to the internet a few times a week about Linux and video games. I just started powerlifting a few months ago and it's pretty fun. Plus it gets me off my butt and into gym a few times a week, which can't be awful.
In a recent D&D game, my druid fell on some enchanted rusty spikes and contracted super-tetanus. If you know which adventure that's from, we'll probably get along just fine.
Regardless, I'm reasonably competent at:
- Computer stuff
- Tabletop RPGs
- Being a burrito.
Apparently I also make a mean bruschetta, but I wouldn't know as I hate the stuff.

I'm a dyed in the wool metal head, but I do enjoy a wide variety of music. It's always fun to throw some funk, electro or classical in to the mix. I also run a private radio server that has gigabytes of music on shuffle, so if you have any suggestions for stuff to add, you're more than welcome to throw them my way..
