About me[edit]

On two occasions I have been asked, – "Pray, Mr. Babbage, if you put into the machine wrong figures, will the right answers come out?" ... I am not able rightly to apprehend the kind of confusion of ideas that could provoke such a question.

—Charles Babbage[1]

My username was formerly LiberalFascist.

Please feel free to contact me on my talk page, or by email. Note that I prefer to keep conversations public (i.e. on the talk page) when possible.

I live in the Dallas, Texas area. I'm a computer programmer, server technician and general internet junkie (been online since the early 1990s).

I've used Wikipedia extensively over the years, and now I'm trying to give back to the community and improve the resource I've enjoyed so much.
