Story
Tagline
Ubuntu user with many side projects.
Introduction
I have been a user of Ubuntu since 9.04, and am usually running whatever the latest development release is on my laptop. I am using Ubuntu GNOME on my desktop. Although I'm not currently using it, I'm also an elementary OS fan. I am currently an undergraduate in computer science at Lawrence Technological University in Southfield, MI.

I typically am kept quite busy with school and work, but I also have a few side hobbies, which include hanging out with friends online, coding, bike riding, and teaching myself Esperanto.
Bragging rights
Fixed a few Ubuntu bugs; constructed my own personal website from scratch; maintainer of the Chocolatey packages for EASy68K and gdipp

The store layout is confusing, and my #3 Totally Tuna came without the bean sprouts. Service was just okay; not good, but not bad either. There's a Jimmy John's in Sterling Heights that I like better.

My favorite place for BBQ. Their sauce is good, and I really like their fried okra!

I got the ribs and was quite disappointed. They came out tough, dry and chewy, with a hard shell. They weren't very tasty, either. For $11 for a 1/3 slab, they were quite the letdown.
