Steve Killen

Hi, I'm a nerd. :) I write, and sometimes I publish those writings on my blog, Pursuing Calefaction. More often I'll write trivia here. I brew (award-winning!) beer on my stove and also with my friends; details are on the HomeBrewing section of the wiki. Also an elected member of the HCoop Board of Directors, serving as the treasurer.

A moment of shame: sidhe-Rog-Orc-Fem-Cha died in the Dungeons of Doom on level 1. Killed by a carnivorous bag.

My /Chores. (No, you don't get to see them. They're boring.)

My Car.

This forum post is how I got our Brother HL 2240 laserjet printer working in Linux.

I last bit my fingernails on Nov 12th, 2008 May 30th, 2013.
