This account is now inactive, see my new account (ChrisCantrall) for why.

My degree is in Mechanical Engineering, from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo.

This poke at dumb laws shamelessly borrowed from wirelessbuzzers.

A note on my conduct:

I am a Weird Person™. The people who meet me in person and get to know me face-to-face come to realize that I am a good-natured person who usually means well. Online, that is more difficult for you to do. If I say something that offends you, I probably did not mean to. (Probably because I haven't insulted anyone online yet, but may succumb to the pressure eventually.)

I may also say something that sounds quite unusual, on the fringes of society or accepted behavior. This is likely a result of me being a Weird Person™ - my sense of humor is somewhat twisted. I often push the boundaries of what is socially acceptable, looking for humor. (I even find it, occasionally.) But, my idea of socially acceptable is also Strange™ in some ways. Things which affect my view of social acceptability:

Of course, it is also possible that I said something unpopular - and meant it. I have some philosophical, political, and theological views which are not considered mainstream. And not just the Slashdot Political Party stuff. But that should be pretty obvious, in context.

This confession was made in an effort to avoid misunderstandings. If you have read this and are still unhappy with me, /msg me - if I've done wrong, I want to know. I want to correct what I can, and make apologies where they are appropriate.
