I’ve been going by “DeadTOm” online, mostly for gaming purposes, since the late 1990s. I’m a gen-x, professional computer nerd, mediocre programmer, occasional photographer, video and tabletop gamer, ordained Dudeist minister, dad to two male nerdlings, and husband-like figure to an amazing woman.
I’m an advocate for free and open source software, and a Linux user since 1997. My current distribution of choice is Debian. My household has been Windows free since 2008. If you want to learn more about Linux, I suggest you start here.
I play a lot of pen and paper role-playing games, and video games. I tinker with electronics, and I have a lot of home built devices around my house, performing various tasks. We camp as often as possible when the weather permits, and I post photos of our adventures on my Flickr page.
