I am Robert. I am (((1/(7x+14))/((2x-4)/((x^2)-4)))^-1) years old; If you care to solve that you get to know my age.
I read a lot (between 150 and 250 pages an hour, depending on book size and interest. Interesting, mass-market paperback size books fall right about at 200), mostly sci-fi and sci-fantasy. With an emphasis on hard sci-fi.
I’m also a musician; I’ve played piano for nine years, saxophone for three, bassoon for two, and I’m learning flute.
I love computers. My current setup is a MSI Wind U100 (a netbook) dual-booting Windows XP and Ubuntu Netbook Remi 9.10, hooked up to a 20″ monitor with 1600×900 resolution whilst I’m at my desk. I’m learning HTML, CSS, and Java. I try out and mess with all kinds of software, many of which you will find reviews for on this blog. My browser of choice is Google Chrome, followed by (a heavily modified and tweaked) Firefox; Firefox has lately been suffering from feature bloat.
Feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also find me on IRC in the Foonetic network on the irc.foonetic.net server in the #xkcd channel as LordOfWhales.
It’s this blog called Ramblings. You might have heard of it.
I created the first incarnation of Ramblings (http://ramblings-robert.blogspot.com) on April 11, 2009. This version — the better one — was created in November of 2009.
This blog is hosted — and the theme provided — by WordPress.
- Because I felt like it
- Because there was a chance someone could learn or find something cool from my blog
- Because blogging is, as I now know, pretty fun
