You'll find me in my backyard on clear, moon-lit nights with my telescope. Nothing beats a star party with a bunch of fellow amateur astronomers under dark skies. Except, fixing a heisenbug after an hour of rubber duck debugging.


Began in Kindergarten. Bedtime story books with tons of assistance from Mom. Initially a fiction reader, I soon succumbed to non-fiction for good. Lately, that includes research publications as well. Best book I've ever read? A dictionary. Not kidding. Information gain per word is astronomical. Try it. Start with an unfamiliar word and follow the crumbs. No, dictionary.com is not a dictionary. Pick a real, tangible one. Works with Wikipedia too!

Games (PC)

Old-school gamer. Era: Split screen multiplayer. LAN partying > MMO games. You get to see your friends' annoyed faces in a LAN party! Long time favourite: Need For Speed 2. Current favourite: Kerbal Space Program; orbital mechanics made easy.
