Passions

There are a lot of things I'm passionate about. I occasionally write poetry. I love reading poetry, although I read all sorts of literature; as far as Fiction goes I prefer Fantasy. My favorite poets are Byron and Blake. I am fanatical about Free Software, especially because I like to experiment with lots of different kinds of software in a GNU/Linux system. I play video games in my spare time; I'm particularly fond of turn-based games, such as roguelikes. Check out my top ten list of video games. When I'm not doing that I'm usually editing text in GNU emacs, which is more of a way of life than a text editor. I think that Lisp is a beautiful and elegant language. I like to play board games, especially Diplomacy and Go, or Resistance. For music I like Morrissey and Beethoven. In general I like things that are pure, but complex. I like a challenge, but not competition.
