Sysadmin. Wanna-be author. Dreamer. Cynic. Amateur Programmer.
Introduction
What words describe me? Systems administrator. Atheist. Wanna-be author. Father and husband. Displaced small-town boy in the big city. Overweight. Cynical and grouchy at times.

Opinions are my own, yada yada, insert standard disclaimers, blah blah...
