Hi! Welcome to my site. This place exists to serve as the 'hub' of my online activities, so that people from various sites can find out what the heck I've been up to. I'll be updating the site as necessary. I don't guarantee that everything I put online is family-friendly, so consider yourself warned. If you want to contact me, you can do so by emailing:
The not_taken_1 address was the account I used for Yahoo Answers, but now that I'm not active on Yahoo Answers, I'll be checking it much less often, so if you were planning to email me, you should use the address shown above instead.
Some people may remember the old site that was up from 2005 to 2009. Some of that content will likely end up here (and some won't), but I'm not committed to reusing the old site structure.
About me: I'm male (and straight), I reside in Canada, and I'm a total nerd who spends most of his free time surfing the Web, writing computer programs, playing computer games (which I mostly suck at), watching anime, reading sci-fi and fantasy novels, and the like. I prefer not to mix my offline and online activities, so if you happen to be someone who knows me outside the Internet, kindly respect my anonymity on here.
Most recent news: Dwarf Fortress Premium just released on Steam and ItchIO. First game I've ever bought on release day at full price (and probably the last for a very long time). I'd recommend this as a good time to get into the game for anyone who's been putting it off due to the ASCII.
