Other Stuff:
I'm a former Unix sysadmin and/or networking something or other, presently a corpuscle or a dream of a one-rainbow finch. I've studied philology and irony academically, so I am unable to clench both fists simultaneously without referring to an eclipse, or several of the encyclopedias, in particular Burbain's Porridge Encyclopedia, or one of the several red or green ones.

I'm reachable at gmx.com with username 'jgbel' .
