This is a picture of me, in my best looking mood, from some time in 1996. Don't be fooled by it for a minute.
I generally dislike having my photo taken, hence the massively outdated pictures.
I'm a programmer. Currently I'm kind of floatingly employed on a contract
basis, which is good because it leaves me lots of time to work on my own game.
I was working on a space game, but lack of interest (of people with money, and
of myself) has driven me to turn my attention, instead, to a massively-multiplayer
RPG, on the basis that those there are already, are very poor. More details of
the game should be forthcoming as the code progresses.
I like to exist in organised chaos, or Creep.
I consider that it would be a waste of my time and yours to describe myself
physically (apart from those bits which I don't think I'm allowed to show in
photos... And I'm not going to describe those bits, no matter how tempting it is)
because I can just stick a bunch of photos here, like so.

So... What do I do?
If I'm not 'working', I tend to play games. Computer games, even. Many people
think that with working on a computer I'd get sick of it. Not yet.
I also pass time by thinking, though I often do this
under guise of doing something mindless like watching television or walking.
Occasionally I aid my thinking by talking to friends, or hinder it by talking
I'm vegetarian. Very. No meat has passed
my lips in many a year. Possibly my entire life. I'm even vegan at time of writing,
which has been held to fully comprehensively (to my knowledge)
since the beginning of 1998, and pretty much before that for a couple of years.
I play on MUSHes... Most commonly as RavenBlack on Absolute MUSH.
I do some excellent MUSH code, some of which is around on this site. No, I won't write MUSH code for you, unless you grovel a lot and I'm in a good mood and I'm bored. This never happens.
I have some friends. They're people who I like, just like most people's friends are to them. If you'd like to know more about them (or if you're one of them and you'd like to know more about you), click here.
My favourite film is... Variable, a spur of the moment thing. Maybe a Jackie Chan thing, or The Crow (only for the raven actors), or Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead.
Bands I like (and have links for) include The Cure,
My Life Story,
Counting Crows (another link),
The Divine Comedy,
I have a bit of a thing about words, often annoying people by correcting
spellings and grammar, and by pausing to choose the best word for a situation.
Some situations don't have a word, and I try to remedy this situation by
making them. My words, then, in the dictionary addendum.
