July 8, 2006Compassionate, funny, insightful, and awesome to snuggle with. Gives the best relationship advice on the planet. I couldn't ask for a better friend. I'm even willing to put the whole "monkey" incident behind me.
So there's this event I'm participating in this month called Thing-A-Day ( www.thing-a-day.com/ ). The idea is to create something every day for the month of February. I'm completely uncertain what I'll be making for my things; probably I'll assemble a miniature and paint it tonight for my first thing. That'll take more than the suggested hour, but I'm building a Cryx army to use on Saturday and I need the figure anyway.Fri, February 1, 2008 - 10:44 AM permalink - 0 comments

So, my media computer died on me a few weeks back and I've been trying to get it running since. The floppy drive, the CD drive, the BIOS battery replacement, and the video card all went bad simultaneously. I know what you're thinking because each time I've found a component not working, my incredulity rises. "What are the odds" lately has been met with "never tell me the odds".Fri, January 25, 2008 - 12:41 AM permalink - 0 comments
Further, I've had to deal with some extra *special* annoyances from having a SATA disk system. All this came abou... read more
It's been an exhausting few days, and I've been barely keeping up. Work has been tense lately - there's a looming deadline and too much work to go around. I am working on setting up (con|de)struction, but it's a process I have to feel my way through and it's a lot of work to make real progress. My desktop at home has gone completely non-linear. I managed to clean, and finished my first real Nerf hack, but that blew out the entire evening. I've met an awesome person recently, but I'm also miss... read moreWed, January 9, 2008 - 6:57 PM permalink - 0 comments
So for the last few hours, I've been hanging out with my Sister, Niki, and a large contingent of hackers at Hackerbot Labs. The place is FANTASTIC, and I'm inspired to replicate it in Boulder. Odds of success? Low, but high enough to contemplate the attempt.Sun, December 30, 2007 - 6:39 PM permalink - 0 comments
I've been alternating between fielding phone calls from friends, writing RFID control software, and meeting friends / new people. It's just another subtle reminder that Seattle is full of chunky bits of awesome.

So I'm hanging out at the Green Tortoise ( www.greentortoise.net/ ) hostel in Seattle. It has not only free internet access, but also computers that one can jump on in order to take advantage of said access. Not that I don't have my own, but I just woke up and decided this iMac was soooo cuuute. The Green Tortoise is right across the street from Pike Street's Market, which has enough fresh fish to have convinced Niki to wander over there this morning, with hopes of cooking something.Fri, December 28, 2007 - 10:06 AM permalink - 0 comments

Can a person be summarized by
a series of simple lines?
Is my essence so easy to define?
No. But we must try.
I'm a dreamer, seeking ascension through a winding path of electrons, love, and unrelenting dedication to living. I'm a riot nrrd, a professional programmer, a reformed system-cracker; I knit, I write poetry, I sketch, I paint small metal figures. I grok polyhedrals and polyamory. I own a flogger.
I am worldnamer everywhere. Right now, I'm worldnamer in Boulder, Colorado. I like fierce women and men with beautiful hair. I like people - their stories and hopes and roads taken. I wrote my own web-log software, but cross-post to LiveJournal, Tribe, and MySpace. I'm married. She likes the same kinds of women I do.
My past haunts me and sometimes I get sad. Sometimes I dress in black and wear eye-liner and lipstick and dance until I can cry. Other times I dress in jeans and a Thundercats shirt. I let my shoes die before replacing them, but I buy new shirts every few months.
My name is John. It's nice to meet you.
