Technical Skills:
I have owned, operated, and been intimate with computers since I was a young boy. I cut my teeth on a Kaypro 8088, I was around for the birth of the Internet*at 1200 baud*, and today I bathe in the glow that Linus Torvalds *and George Lucas* give off. In fact, I have been told on a number of occasions that I am more suited to a life with computers than with living, breathing humans.
I am fluent in Klingon, and familiar with all the Lucas Arts games *Even Star Wars Demolition and Force Commander, despite how severely they sucked*. I use Mac, Microsoft, and Linux operating systems, run my own webserver and FTP, and on weekends, I host an Everquest campaign based on the life of Sally Field. I am an expert defragger, and run scandisk sometimes twice a day.

Interpersonal Skills
None to speak of.


Upon request.
