Hah! This is great!
#linux  +Linus Torvalds 
I like offending people, because I think people who get offended should be offended. Linus I'm sure that there is no other person in IT world that can make you feel the way Linus does. In fact, I think nobody else can afford managing the communities the way Linus does. Torvalds can get away saying things like “trying to come up with some ‘code of conduct’ that says that people should be ‘respectful’ and ‘polite’ is just so much crap and bullshit”...

Basic Information
Bring me my monocle. I want to look rich.
By profession I am an experienced Linux/UNIX developer working on embedded, kernel/device driver, and application development. I am fluent in Greek and even spent some time teaching myself an introductory level of both Biblical Greek and Hebrew (along with a general understanding of Semitic grammar); which in turn was used to publish two of my three books based on history and theology. I am also author of multiple Linux related articles published in issues of Linux Journal, Linux Pro, and Linux+ magazines. When I am not busy being a good husband and an excellent father (of two), I spend my free time writing device drivers and applications for Linux projects. This includes writing kernel code.

I ordered an urn for my late dog and it was exactly what the website claimed it was. The quality was good and I couldn't have been more pleased. It was a perfect way to honor our recently passed member of the family.

This is my favorite museum in the entire Chicago land area. It is a relatively decent size and you can spend half a day viewing all of the historical artifacts and sculptures. The primary focus of this museum and the campus' archaeology department is the ancient Near East. So it is super exciting to see things from cultures less commonly shown in more mainstream museums. You will find items from Sumerian, Babylonian, Assyrian, Hittite / Luwian, Israelite, Egyptian, Persian, Nubian, etc. cultures. I love this museum so much I consider it a second home and have visited it more times than I can count.
