Zell Faze Self Portrait.png

I am a web developer, network engineer, and IT Jack of all Trades. I am Bitcoin user and an avid Free Software advocate. I make changes to articles when I feel they are needed and the article is too un-read for some one else to care enough to make the change.

I live a simple life, or at least try to, and beg others to consider the following question posed by David Wann: " is important to ask ourselves three fundamental questions: what is the point of all our commuting and consuming? What is the economy for? And, finally, why do we seem to be unhappier now than when we began our initial pursuit for rich abundance?"

I care a lot about equality, that problems with the gender-gap within Wikimedia and the technology industry in general bother me on a very deep level. While I will continue to advocate for the creation of safe-spaces and to treat women better online and off, I can no longer participate in the gender-gap mailing list. I'm sorry to anyone that has been disappointed by this. At some point I might come back, after I learn a little more about effective communication, but for the moment it is obvious to me that there are some communication issues between myself and the rest of the list that at least for the moment are insurmountable.

Identity Commitment[edit]

As of 2012-03-27 I have forgotten what this was the SHA-1 of. I may be able to guess, but I am not 100% sure.

Committed identity: 4176fde06187da592c5a5ee336ce5804f73a214a is a SHA-1 commitment to this user's real-life identity.

Information about my PGP key is available here. I will post any changes to my PGP keys on my Google+ or somewhere else fairly authoritative. Others I know in real life will vouch for my keys if they should change.

Links to Things I Might Need[edit]


I have a ton of userboxes. So they are hidden by default to save some space on this page.

Barnstars and Wikilove[edit]

A Barnstar!

You are awarded this mighty Great American Wiknic Barnstar for your valorous efforts in helping to organize the 2012 Great American Wiknic in the great city of Frederick. -—Pharos (talk) 21:27, 2 July 2012 (UTC)

Thank you for commenting on Individual Engagement Grant proposals during this recent round! We really appreciate that you took the time to share your thoughts.

To help us improve the IEG program for future participants, would you mind taking this quick 3-question survey?

Thanks again for your help,

A Barnstar!
RPG Barnstar

@Zell Faze: I have proposed a new barnstar but for now let me un-officially offer you this un-official "RPG Barnstar" for your help in supplying the citation for Dragon Magazine #427. Not only did you help me to cite my text, you inspired me to create this barnstar. Thank you!
