## Styles ##
- I use italics to emphasize, bold to draw attention, and all caps to SHOUT!
- I sometimes _underline_words_ for various reasons
- I use abbreviated form emotions, :) :( ;) :P instead of :-) :-( ;-) :-P And I use them in place of punctuation:)
- I use *Asterisk* to indicate descriptions of actions. *blink*, *blink*, *blink*, (I'm blinking at yo now), *blink*. Although I suppose I should use [brackets] which I also use to indicate a description of some thing.
- I use *snip* to indicate removal of text in stead of using ...
Twinkle, twinkle, little*snip*Tea toy in the sky.
The lion and the unicorn where walking through the land. They came across a Man on a cross. Each thought "I will use this Man." The lion said *snip**snip**snip* rod. Which is why we now rely on government more than God.
- I often use the spoiler tag just to conserve space in UVL articles.

# Philosophies #
- Videogames are an art form
- Videogames is a word
- Liberty Software (Free Libre Open Source Software)
I expect some of my tags to eventually be converted to regular UVL data (EDSAC tag to EDSAC platform, langHebrew tag to Hebrew language option). Or deleted when a better one is created (3Dfx replaced by Glide3D) and then converted to regular UVL data. When all my tag work is destroyed in this way, I am content.
- Maximum usability for all
I believe every effort should be made to reduce the use of graphics and client-side scripts on webpages as these things are more effective at excluding people than adding features.
# Corporations #
"I hope we shall...crush in its birth the aristocracy of our moneyed corporations, which dare already to challenge our government to a trial of strength and bid defiance to the laws of our country" -1816 Thomas Jefferson
Some other prevalent conditions of corporations:
Dissocial personality disorder
Histrionic personality disorder
Schizoid personality disorder
Narcissistic personality disorder
Sadistic personality disorder
dangerous and severe personality disorder
# Business #
[spoiler=Business;Business]I'm all for business and profit. I like some of The Rules of Acquisition. Not all profit is Money. Not everything that shines is Latinum. Business is business. (Dehumanization is not)
# Copyright #
I suggest a return to traditional values. Intellect should not be kept in slavery for more than seven years. If it was originally bundled with other intellectual property, that property should go free also. If the fans of the property demand that the owner continue care for the property, then the owner may own the property for longer than 7 years, as long as they provide for the property's needs.
# Politics #
Poli- A Latin prefix meaning "Many"
I'm Libertarian, I respect your right to be wrong (unless I voted for you).

First game console I played was Atari VCS
First game console I programmed on was Magnavox Odyssey2 (Computer Programmer, sort of 'visual assembly').
I had access at home to an Atari VCS until 7th grade. 2nd console I programmed on (BASIC Programming)
First computer I used was an Epson IBM-PC compatible. It was also the first computer I programmed on.
I used Apple ][e computers a lot at school from 5th grade to 10th grade. Mostly when not in a class(Before, after, lunch time). Mostly programming, but I did enjoy some games. If there weren't computers at school I might not have gone to highschool at all.
First computer I owned was an Apple //c
I had access at home to an IBM-PC jr for a while
Got an NES in 10th grade and finally became a gamer.
I purchased an IBM compatible in 10th grade and used DOS, 16-bit Windows, Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows XP, until 2001 when I switched to Ubuntu and never used Windows on my own computers again.
Bought an SNES in 11th grade.
After high school, I rented a PlayStation and Ridge Racer. I was very disappointing and was hit with an overwhelming urge to play Indy 500 (which has 100% more players and 500% more tracks). I went to a thrift store where there was a VCS and INDY 500 and the racing controllers. From there things just sort of ballooned. I really only buy modern systems when it is a very good deal and when an exceptional game gets my attention.

Archetype (newly reimplemented for Glk from the original Pascal sources)
Ubuntu is nice, its easy, everything-just-works(TM). Everything, that is, that's officially made for Ubuntu. Non-official stuff I've hacked in is bogging down my system and making it difficult to do even simple tasks. Especially considering I'm GNU/doing it all on a low-end netbook. And it just wasn't letting me install _every_ GNU/Linux game for information mining (and screenshots). So, I've gone and installed full Debian Squeeze in a mid range box. I have Ubuntu still. Now I also have Debian. UGH! its like, like USING GNU/LINUX again! Not 30 seconds after boot I'm all into command-line coding and source file editing just to get Moria installed. Its not all bad, somehow Gnome Desktop is easier on this box' resources than lubuntu is and the internet is faster even without an adblocker.
Anyway, to sum up. I have Ubuntu, Debian, and Haiku (x86) computers available to fulfill UVL tasks and I will consider all requests.
