About MeI HAD a bio on the old site, but that was a while ago, now..So I'm going to type up something completely new in the next 10 minutes or so. Here I go!
I've been a member here for a sort of long time, and I made a few friends during the time I was active! They seemed to think that I was a generally nice and agreeable person
I'm interested in computers! My desktop computer, which lives at home while I am at college, dual-boots Windows Vista and Ubuntu 12.04. My laptop computer, which I have with me at college, dual-boots Windows 7 and Linux Mint. (I used to run Ubuntu 12.04 on it)
I program in several different languages: Java, C++, Scheme, and Python; I also know a fair bit about shell scripting on the Linux command line!
Me and my friend are currently developing an encrypted chat program in Java (I am doing the Graphical User Interface).
I really enjoy the following games:
Mardek RPG Chapters 1, 2, and 3
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (PC)
Mario and Luigi: Superstar Saga (GBA)
Castlevania: Symphony of the Night (PS1)
Portal 1 and 2 (PC)
Final Fantasy VI (GBA)
Mass Effect 1 and 2 (PC)
Iji (PC, by Daniel Remar)
Cave Story (PC) -and since I played it, they've ported it to a TON of places
Luigi's Mansion (GC)
Super Mario Galaxy 1 and 2 (Wii)
Chrono Trigger (SNES)
Legend of Zelda: Windwaker (GC)
Star Fox 64 (N64)
Metroid Zero Mission (GBA)
Soul Calibur 2 (GC)
Super Metroid (SNES)
La Mulana (PC) - and the remake, which just came out! I am very happy.
Superbrothers: Sword and Sworcery EP (PC)
Pokemon Heart Gold - (DS) - I finished my Pokedex on this one, yay!!
Pokemon Black - (DS)

Etrian Odyssey III: The Drowned City (DS)
Professor Layton and the Curious Village (DS)
Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box (DS)
Professor Layton and the Unwound Future (DS)
Maybe this list of my favorite games will help you to know the kind of person that I am, but probably not. Hopefully, though, there are games on this list that you like, too. Start a conversation with me about one of them or something, I guess.
I am also into playing Magic: the Gathering with my friend. I started playing Magic when the first part of the gothic-horror-themed Innistrad block came out last August or so. I wish that there was some way for me to play against people over the internet with the decks I have constructed, but that would call for some complicated telecommunication.
AND ANOTHER THING.
I just decided to list a few of the TV shows/series that I enjoy watching, or that I have watched in the past, so here they are:
Avatar: The Last Airbender
The Legend of Korra
Sherlock (on BBC)
Phineas & Ferb
and then I decided that it was hard to think of TV shows because I don't really watch that much TV, so I'm deciding to also list a few books that I liked too:
The Black Prism by Brent Weeks
Devices and Desires by K.J. Parker
The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss
The Wise Man's Fear by Patrick Rothfuss
The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
Pandora's Star by Peter F. Hamilton
Judas Unchained by Peter F. Hamilton
The Ender series of books by Orson Scott Card
and that's all I can think of.
Okay, I think that took more like 15 or 20 minutes, but whatever.
