To this day, I can't read anything containing the word "gala" without remembering "I am the first presidential candidate to show up at a gala luncheon wearing a crotchless Barney suit."

(spoiler-free) I'm watching the latest Game of Thrones DVD, laughing my ass off at the tale of Orson's Beetles. I have no idea why this is so engaging. I blame Dinklage.

Don't panic, it's just a game. In the real world, the battle against HP-UX is almost completely won: a few samples are preserved in specialist labs, but nobody in civilian life ever has to fear being exposed to it again. But be sure to take your GPL vaccine just in case.

Story
Tagline
One/zero discriminator
Introduction
I'm a computer scientist (software developer, network engineer, and system administrator).
Professionally, I'm interested in distributed systems, formal methods, quantum computing, security and the process of engineering reliable software.
Personally, I'm interested in aviation, law, ethics, politics, mathematics, psychology, and new learning experiences of almost any kind.

My favourite word is mamihlapinatapai (each expecting the other to do something first). It narrowly edged out rawa-dawa (the sensation of suddenly realising you can do something reprehensible, and no one is there to witness it).


Bragging rights
I have a gold medal with my name inscribed on one side and "FOR SCIENCE" on the other. I estimate that I was the *Youngest Person in the World* for 250 milliseconds. And, of course, I was TIME magazine's Person Of The Year 2006 and a winner of the Nobel Peace Prize 2012. I have really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like.
Education
  • Trinity College, Dublin
    Computer Science, 1990 - 1994
  • O'Connell School (secondary school)
    1985 - 1990

I wish I lived in Miami so I could make this place my regular gym! I visited from overseas because I'd heard good things about the trainer Lazaro, and he lived up to that reputation. He gave close attention and improved a lot of little things in my technique that my regular CrossFit trainers had overlooked. I came away from this with better fitness and knowledge.
