Old-school geek of the "hammers and equations" variety. I like knitting, reading science fiction, eating good poutine and spouting the occasional clever pun.
I write. I translate between dialects of geek.
I don't code. [That doesn't mean I don't do HTML or CSS; I do.] I'm a math geek so the logic doesn't faze me a bit. I simply don't like to code. Plenty of other people code, and they do it well. However, I am not at all offended by talk of coding at the table, as long as you are not offended by me knitting.
If I knit in your presence, I'm still listening. I'm probably talking, too--possibly a lot. I'm just keeping my hands busy so the arthritis doesn't take over. I leave the more difficult projects at home. My "social" knitting requires very little brain engagement; it's pretty much muscle memory.
Don't get too excited about the links on the right--EXCEPT TECHNICAL MAGIC :) --because I'm still setting up house at those URLs. I've been using Teh Intarwebz since they were BITNET, but I'm used to using a pseudonym or writing for someone else.
