I have memories, clouded by sorrow

Of a time in life when blood ran through my veins

First emitted some form of English language nonsense back in 1978. Service has been largely uninterrupted since then.

Professionally I'm a computer games developer; unprofessionally I'm a musician. I don't believe in the old arts/science divide, and consider myself something of a polymath in training.

Message me if you want to talk about anything. I'm not very responsive to the clichéd "a/s/l?" smalltalk however.

Myers-Briggs tests make me a borderline INTJ/INTP. ie. Quiet, objective, creative, but neither biased towards order or chaos.

Or to look at it another way:
'Judge' (Dominant Introvert Concrete Thinker). "While some may see you as a bit overbearing and arrogant, your friends know that you are a trustworthy person with depth and a strong sense of righteousness. Although you are introverted and somewhat reserved, you have a forceful personality that your friends appreciate and your enemies fear. God help them. God help all of us."

According to OKCupid.com:
Compared to males his age:
  • He's less sex-driven
  • He's less kinky
  • He's less emotional
  • He's more mathematical
  • He's more loving
  • He's more socially conservative
  • He's less spontaneous

Consistently classed as 'The Boy Next Door' (Random Gentle Love Dreamer (RGLDm)). "You're the typical 'nice guy': without just a touch of cockiness, you're doomed with girls."

Or, as wood_elf's dad said 12 years ago: "Ben is a highly intelligent pupil who is capable of doing very well academically. His particular strengths are in Mathematics and Science. He could be described as an individual. He generally prefers working on his own and investigating things for himself. He gives the appearance of being rather shy but gets on reasonably well with members of his peer group." ;)

Shone the sunset red and solemn
Where we stood and observed
Down the corners of the column
Letter strokes of Ogham carved
"tis belike a burial pillar"
Said he, "and these shallow lines
Hold some warriors name of valour
And will rightly show the signs"
