The last time I updated my bio was 2010? Really?
Well, here's the 2012 version, which contains 200% more certainty than the old one:
I'm a 20-year-old American woman (yes, I know my username sounds manly) currently attending university, majoring in computer science and minoring in English. I'm also an IT intern who gets to work with the super exciting happy fun time that is SAP; if you don't know what that is, just be thankful. In what little spare time I have, I'm also involved with my local chapter of the Association for Computing Machinery and am working on a project focusing on field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs), which is nerdy computer stuff.
The rest of the time, I mostly play videogames. I mostly like RPGs (Mass Effect and KotOR) but I play the occasional FPS and am an unabashed rabid Valve fangirl--I have never played a Valve game I didn't like! I also have some more unusual likes, such as Nethack (which I've yet to come close to winning), text adventures (like Zork!), and Spy Party. It's a diverse list, I know, but they all have a certain amount of complexity, which I think is why I like them all so much.
Other interests of mine include superhero comics (I'm a self-proclaimed Batfamily expert!), fantasy and science fiction books, linguistics (specifically conlanging), and the Internet in general. When I can be dragged away from my technology, I also like camping, kayaking, hiking, and traveling--computers are cool, but nature is even better!
