My name surprisingly is Richard Slater, please feel free to post any comments, suggestions or criticisms on My Talk page.
I am interested in Wikipedia because I feel that it is a superb community project, I have been using it since 2003 when I was researching for my Dissertation on The Future of Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Games since then I have regularly used it for research on a number of topics I have been interested in or my work has required me to investigate.
Areas of expertise
I don't consider myself to be an expert in very much, there are a few areas I have been consistently interested in for most of my life, there are quite a number of other topics that I have been involved in or have had a transient interest in.
Long Term Interests
- Christianity (I myself am a Pentecostal Christian)
- Computer Programming (PHP, C# and Java mainly)
- Operating Systems (Microsoft Windows, Linux - Gentoo, Ubuntu and HP-UX)
- Massively Multiplayer Online Games
- 802.11 Wireless Networking
- Databases (MySQL and MSSQL)
- The BBC TV Series Spooks
- CCP Games EVE Online
The EVE Online article is subject to regular abuse, vandalism and submission of POV content, the majority of the people who have contributed to the article have played the game, this in itself has made it difficult to provide a truly POV attitude, so anyone who is interested but hasn't formed opinions on the game are welcome to come and make suggestions.
