My self-summary

I'm a full time kilted fellow, a computer programmer, and am an amateur enthusiast in all things about religions and faith, without really believing or disbelieving in any of them.

I'm also a bit of a trickster, a punster, a muppet of sorts, the kind of guy who quietly whispers "manah manah" at funerals, weddings, and crime scenes.

Hey, look, more profiles!: Myspace wow it's old...) Facebook

I am brilliant, attractive, and very humble. (If you are humor impaired, you can stop reading now.)
What I’m doing with my life
I write and maintain code (PHP/Perl/Ruby/whatever), I wrangle lots of servers, I occasionally dabble in my music and writing. I have a really awesomely weird array of friends,
I’m really good at

Deflecting questions. :)

My work has led me into complex computing systems, because I can quickly scan 10,000 lines of text and find the mistakes, or corner cases unaccounted for, etc.

I have excellent pedantry skills, which is a fairly useless super-power, unless people want me to help edit and improve existing work. At least it pays well.

The first things people usually notice about me
The long hair, and the kilt.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Sample Books: Foucalt's Pendulum, Coincidance, Cryptonomicon, The Hite Report, Godel Escher Bach, Illuminatus, My Idea of Fun, A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius

Sample Movies: Female Perversions, Fight Club, Brazil, Princess Bride, Holy Mountain, West Side Story, Jacob's Ladder, Rosencrantz & Guildenstern are Dead

Sample Music: VNV Nation, Dresden Dolls, Massive Attack, Skinny Puppy, Pigface, Then Tingari, Crash Worship, Dead Can Dance, Underworld, Johnny Cash, Erasure, Foetus, Coil, Ani DiFranco

Food: Thai (I loves me some Thom Kha Gai!), Sonoran-style Mexican (I grew up in southern Arizona), Sushi... and ridiculously expensive, indulgent, prix fixe meals.

I suppose I could have listed everything, but since things like music would require listing over 1000 bands, it seemed.... excessive.

Here's my current Pandora stations, which will at least be a little more genre-specific.

The six things I could never do without

I live because of sleep, music, transportation, a decent compiler, a usable computer, and an vox/internet uplink.

About the last three, when I went on the "bopalooza" (a road trip all over the US), I kept in touch with family and friends the whole time. $1,600 bucks in roaming charges in one month.

I spend a lot of time thinking about structures, large systems scaling issues, perceptions of reality, and creative ways of lifting people up.
On a typical Friday night I am
Catching up on my DVR, occasionally going to a friends gig/party/exhibit, but more often home until about midnight, then out to socialize the closest pub to me, which happens to have dancers. If you've lived in PDX for a while, you know what that means. ;) Anyways, once the staff realized I wasn't a perv, it became a place where the DJ would play my music, and the scenery is nice, though the clientèle can be touch and go at times. On the plus side, I often get to play angel/cabbie, and have made lifelong friends with a bunch of the current and former staff.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I was abused for a really long time, and spent a really long time in therapy because of it. As a side effect, I can now spot manipulation, games, and emotional blackmail and power-plays from a mile away, and I have no tolerance, whatsoever, for non-consensual physical violence in a relationship.
You should message me if
You've googled me adequately, and have any sort of interest in getting to know each other. I'll give you one word, that's all you'll really need, it's my profle name.
