I spend a lot of time on my computer. I currently play video games like Civ5, WoW, and every now and again MOO2 (old school). As well I fuddle about on the internet when I'm not using it for work related stuff. I'll shameless admit to watching every episode of Stargate SG-1, Atlantis, Universe (awesome btw) Next Gen, DS9 and Voyager. TOS was before my time but when I run out of things to watch on Netflix I'll give it a shot (it is way campy). I'm looking for a good reason to watch Dr. Who so do your best to convince me in off topic threads. 

Once upon a time I tried to Frankenstein a Learning Management System from some free forums and a wordpress blog. I have plans to change the site into a more traditional blog / photo blog /vlog for my poetry. It still has some things I wrote on it that I think are neat  http://www.buildsoil.com
