I love playing games of all sorts (video games, board games, card games, whatever!). I also enjoy camping, singing, fishing (though I rarely catch anything), rock climbing, and trying new things.
I love knowledge, both learning and teaching.
I have a politically incorrect sense of humor. Though I've learned to censor myself well, don't be afraid of offending me.
I'm passable on drums and enjoy singing.
I built an autonomous robot using a Roomba for the chassis. Now 95% of my ads on OKC are from iRobot.
I am a big nerd in all the best ways. I'm a proud Hooman! TeamHooman
I also run a home business, Amaragh Associates. I do computer forensics work there, mostly for defendants in BitTorrent litigation.
I enjoy movies of all sorts other than overly gory horror. I don't often have the time to sit down and watch TV, these days I'm more likely watching a Geek & Sundry episode on YouTube if anything. But as far as actual TV goes, my current viewing has been Rick & Morty, Inside Amy Schumer, Bob's Burgers, Brooklyn 99 and Adventure Time, typically playing on a spare monitor while my attention is focused on something else.
Music: I enjoy a broad range of music, but I tend towards the classics. I have no idea who any of the up and coming artists are for the last few years, and I'm pretty bad at remembering band names to begin with. Here's a random selection of stuff on my playlist right now: The Doubleclicks Flight of the Conchords, Styx, Pink Floyd, The Beatles, Tenacious D, Frank Sinatra , Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Ella Fitzgerald, Howlin' Wolf, Queen, God Lives Underwater, Johnny Cash, and The Doobie Brothers.
Gaming: There's not much I don't enjoy when it comes to gaming, and if I'm playing it with friends what personal preferences in games I do have don't tend affect my enjoyment much. Most recently been playing Kerbal Space Academy and Elite: Dangerous on PC, Rampage and Settlers of Catan on tabletop.
My favorite cuisines are good chinese and good japanese, especially sushi. Also anything with garlic in it.
Freedom - Freedom from arbitrary social boundaries, freedom to express myself.
Peace - Internal Peace, peace of heart and peace of mind.
Friends & Family - What's the point in going to work, or in having any free time afterwards, if you don't have these?
Laughter - It takes a while before I joke much with someone, as I need to get a feel for their taboo subjects.
Electronics - Don't get me wrong, I love going out in the woods or even getting together and agreeing to keep things low-tech and simple. It's nice to get a peaceful break from all the input from so many different devices, but I certainly wouldn't want to go long term without a reliable computer and an internet connection.
Games - This is the hobby that doesn't ever seem to wax and wane like my other interests. It might shuffle between PC and console, board games and pen & paper, but I've never hit a point where I was done with gaming.
