I'm a husband to my beautiful wife, father to our children, Computer Science graduate from University of Central Arkansas. I love my wife, our children, computers, playing guitar (especially singing/playing for my wife and/or kids), bicycling (including taking my kids for rides in my bike trailer), woodworking, airbrushing, digital and traditional artistry, playing games with my family (traditional and digital), my poor Chevette that I had to sell, throwing knives, firearms, knot tying, rope making, whip making, and really just learning new stuff in general. If I don't know about it I probably want to learn about it, if only so I can make informed decisions about it.

My three favorite programming languages are Python, Lisp, and Assembly (though I'm not sure about the order of those last two languages...), and I currently develop in .NET languages, especially VB.

I think the CANSPAM act is one of the dumbest pieces of legislation in the history of the universe

Code I can write/read (where 1 is just barely, 3 is the average user, and 10 is the language designer/guru level):

  • Python - 6/10
  • C++ - 4/10
  • Perl - 3/10
  • Assembly - 3/10
  • HTML/JavaScript - 5/10
  • VB.NET - 5/10
  • C# - 5/10
  • Befunge - 2/10

comment Our water heater blew a leak. What should I do now?
Yeah, @Comintern, unfortunately it's with a $1,500(USD) deductible. Looking around at prices... unless I'm paying for installation, I don't think I'll be filing a claim.

comment How to keep pine needles out of a gutter?
Personally I prefer the chainsaw method. Because I hate pine (in my yard)

comment Are these termites?
Termites look more like ants. You might try emailing these pictures to your local cooperative extension if you live in the US.

It's bolted to the footer in a few places - when I get home I'll put up some pictures.

comment Can I install sub floor over carpeting?
Those oscillating power tools (like the Fein Mulit-Master, or the Harbor Freight variety) usually have a little scraper attachment (I know the HF one I bought came with it). That would probably work insanely well at pulling up your carpet, and for ~$20 it's probably worth a test anyway.

comment What are the tools that every Do-it-Yourselfer must own?
also called calipers. The cheap(est) kind mean you need to learn how to read a vernier scale, o'course (unless you're old enough to have learned on a slide rule ;)
