  0. How (that is, by whom) did you join Red Bean, and approximately
     when?  Who in Red Bean knows you in real life, so we could ask
     them if you suddenly appear to disappear?

Hmm.  That would have been Bryan O'Sullivan's fault.  About 2 years
ago, he said "come on Robert.  Everyone's doing it."  At first, it was 
only on weekends and Thursday nights, but pretty soon I was doing it
every day.  However, my friends took me away one night to the Betty
Ford clinic, and now I'm happy to say that I'm pretty clean once
again.  Now I just use the a/c for occasional nameserver twiddling for 
the durables.serpentine.com domain.

  1. Do you use Red Bean as your primary email address and/or primary
     Web server (i.e., is your home page here)?

Nope.  But gargle does act as a secondary ns for me.  It used to be

  2. Do you know anything about Unix system administration?
     Programming?  Tell everything about you and computers... :-)

Oh yes.  Lots.  Although only about Unixy stuff.  I tend to break down
in tears in the presence of Windows.  Right now I work with Sun
writing IC CAD software.  Previous to that, I was with Siemens doing
military messaging and security/cryptography stuff for European types.
I've also done my fair share of device driver programming and hardware
hacking (built a RAID once.)  The early years are just a fuzzy set of
memories of Apple II's, Sinclair Spectrums and Atari ST's.  Sigh.
Nothing else.

  3. Anything else about yourself you'd like made known?  Put it here,
     anything goes.

I make pretty good homemade minestrone.  I'm afraid to throw out old
computer hardware, just in case I ever need it again.

  4. Optional information: what's your snail address and phone, in
     case something goes down and we need to reach you that way?
     (This information will not be published on the Web unless you
     specifically grant permission.)

  5. Do you play bagpipes?
