The page formerly known as 'Networking (TCP/IP!) dude.'
I am a dedicated curmudgeon. Stan Kelly-Bootle is my hero. I feed trolls when they start a language war or a war about indenting. Just for the hell of it, I'm doing a PowerPC port. I primarily work on the network code. I have a soft spot for role playing games. I admire these non-computer people: Leo McKern, Ace Hayes, Bud Clark. 1978 was the apex of western civilization.
