This site is run by Landon Dyer. I’ve been around on various networks since the late 1970s. I program computers for a living, and I often talk about that here. I would be programming computers anyway, and it’s astonishing and fantastic that people will actually pay me to write code. Wow.
Since I’ve been around a while, I occasionally write up stories that I think you’d find fun. I usually change the names to protect the guilty.
We have a son. I’ll refer to him from time to time, obliquely and not by name (despite protests to the contrary, anonymity on the net is hard to obtain, hard to maintain, and impossible to regain — and it would suck if you dad blew it when you were only a kid, right?)
We live in the Seattle area (I’ll bitch from time to time about the rain, but I truly think that it’s better than living in a desert like Silly Valley). Yes, I do work for a certain large software firm. I make no apologies, it’s fun (and it beats psychotic start-ups, which I’ll also probably rant about from time to time).
I also motorcycle, which you might think is incompatible with the rain, but it isn’t.
