Hi. Please tell me if you need help. I usually respond. I'm essentially retired, so I'm pretty easygoing.

Collaborative game development

I have been greedily using Wikipedia since its inception, but I have only been giving back for a little more than a year.

I'm an optimist mostly because no country has attacked another with a nuclear weapon since 1945 and because it takes fewer clicks to clean Wikipedia than to vandalize it.

Despite my username, I'm rather mediocre at wakeboarding.
