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.

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

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

Projects on the back burner

Crazy ideas I come up with

  • A frisk (or whatever) board display server with a handheld API that hooks up to a projector suspended over a table surface!
  • An Appalachian Trail wiki (really? Nobody's thought to do this yet?) Well, there's http://www.walkipedia.org/. But the guy's just sitting on it for now, apparently.
