I wrote a couple of story games at one point in my life

You know, like Dungeons & Dragons, but entirely different.

I wrote a game called Grace that is about being thirteen and having weird intimate moments with your friends. I wrote another game called roguish that is about crawling through, and dying in, dungeons of your own creation.

I enjoy reading books

Some of my favorite books are about books. One might argue that all books are about books.

I have not, historically, kept close track of all the books I’ve read, and I’m probably not about to start. On the other hand, this year I finally joined in with the book bingo my sister and her friend run. This inspired me to work on some scavenger hunt ideas, though that might be more of a writing exercise than anything else.

I’ve read a bunch of books recently about women’s art and the inability of men to accurately perceive it and I do not expect to tire of this subject matter.

I have some thoughts on cooking

Bake by weight. Touch your food. You can’t own too many prep bowls. Feed your friends. You should bake snickerdoodles. Only ever buy unsalted butter: you can always add salt but you can’t take it out.

I touch computers

I touch computers for a living at the Mullins Lab in the University of Washington Department of Microbiology. My history of touching computers for a wage is available.

I touch computers recreationally to make this website, and I've started messing around with OpenBSD for my recreational system administration needs. Consequently, this website is served by OpenBSD's httpd, if that's something you find interesting.

I even submitted a port patch that got accepted! Neat.

Databases are good, actually. More on this later.
