DannyTheNinja, master of stealth, multiple personalities, creepy interpretations of awesome music, and anything computer-related.
I'm 18 years old and exactly 2 weeks, 13 hours, 37 minutes, and 23 seconds away from graduating high school. In the fall I will be pursuing a college degree (B.S.) in Network Security at a prestigious university. I joined ADISC about three years ago lacking many social skills; shortly thereafter I ceased homeschooling and hacked up a new chapter of my life in a local private school.
My playlist consists primarily of Metallica, System of a Down, Black Sabbath, Mushroomhead, Apocalypta, and Serj Tankian. I drive a 5-speed, surf the net on a 12.1" IBM X41 tablet PC, try to go on at least 1 major hiking trip and 1 trip to the regional amusement park a year, and have a what.cd account (part of the reason I have so little music ). I'm on my church's youth group band as the estranged keyboardist who's always screwing with the music in the dark corner of the stage. My IQ has been estimated to be in the 140s-150s but I have never been formally examined; the rigorous daily schedule of the last several weeks has artificially depressed that to what I personally estimate to be the mid- to high-120s. I have a bad reputation for breaking the curves on tests, and am currently trying to avoid being stalked by at least four girls ranging from 8th grade from the end of the sophomore year of college.
I didn't make valedictorian and am having a personal struggle with being a good sport, but I am friends with the kid that made it. I'm jealous and not jealous at the same time. I got into the school I wanted to get into, and I did the best I could do in high school (only had 3 Bs my entire time at school, the rest were As), plus I don't have to speak at graduation. What confidence I gain in introducing or describing myself in writing, I lose tenfold when it comes to public speaking.
I'm a very logical thinker and extremely tenacious and, while I have a temper, if I see an error in my judgment I try to be quick in correcting it.
Undoubtedly my biggest interest is computers. I have five of them in my basement hooked up to a recently acquired Gigabit switch because I ran out of ports on my WRT54GL long ago. Four boxes run Linux (2 Ubuntu, 2 Fedora) and the one that runs IRC (myself and dannybot) runs FreeBSD 7.2. My network runs three production subnets and uses IPv6 in production. I am currently interning at a large enterprise as part of a senior project; though I am only on for a week and a half they've already had me write some production code in C# (which I had to learn in 4 days). I've also figured out how to VPN into home and get native routed IPv6 from there despite being behind an aggressive outbound firewall and proxy. I maintain an open source content management system in PHP/MySQL for which the entire infrastructure is custom built with Apache, Python, mod_rewrite, and a few cron scripts.
Roles on ADISC:
- I maintain and moderate the wiki. I go through the list of recent changes to make sure articles are accurate, are written in decent English, and don't repeat information, and maintain the wiki templates and code.
- IRC: My bot, dannybot, keeps IRC statistics and provides some tools for moderators as well as a couple of miscellaneous services (currency conversion, link shortening)
- In general, I'm always available to chat especially because my Pidgin stays signed on 24/7. If you have any ADISC related questions chances are I can either answer or direct you to the right person. Hit me up on IM or via PM anytime.
One sentence of gory ABDL stuff: (because this is an AB/DL forum)
Mostly emotional, somewhat sexual, I like the general feel of a diaper but don't own anything else, trying to get a footed sleeper.
