|DragonHawk's status (as of 04:11, 19 February 2010 (UTC)): Too busy in real life to make contributions, but may do so anyway. I may drop off the wiki without warning. If that happens, I will return eventually. Email if you need fast response. Otherwise, I will respond eventually.|
Hello! My Wikipedia username is DragonHawk. Feel free to call me that. My True Name is "Benjamin Scott". Feel free to call me that. Most people (myself included) just use "Ben". Feel free to call me that. But please don't call me "That". ;)
My work at Wikipedia
In addition to adding major content to articles, I make a lot of minor edits, and do a lot of copy editing and clean-up work. I'm particularly fond of cleaning up dab pages to conform with the Manual of Style.

Obligatory biographical drivel
This is included in an effort to help provide a little context for my work on this encyclopedia.
In Real Life, I live in New Hampshire, in the New England region of the United States. I'm a geek, a professional sysadmin by trade. I'm big into Linux and Free Software, and am heavily involved in my local LUG. I also know a fair bit about professional Microsoft Windows administration, although personally, I don't like Microsoft. I have a good understanding of technology and science in general. Outside of the geek/career stuff, I'm also interested in science fiction, and read heavily. I also like music, especially rock, double-especially classic rock. My favorite band is Rush.
I limit my use of userboxes to those which have some relevance to my work as a Wikipedian. I'm here to write an encyclopedia, not create a MySpace page. And the only reason I mention my gender is for Wikipedia discussions — English lacks satisfactory gender-neutral pronouns, so this lets people call me "he" if they want.
Feel free to contact me! I am open to suggestions, comments, commendations, and condemnations. Let me know what you think I'm doing right or wrong. Or just say "Hi".
You can always leave me a message on my talk page. Even if I don't see it right away, I will still eventually get any message left there.
My email address consists of my Wikipedia username, at the domain used by Google's email service. Anyone who can understand that is welcome to email me. :-) Or just use this link to send me email. I do prefer the talk page method, though.
