About me

I'm a teen software developer who relishes hacking PHP on the Web, C# on his PC and Objective-C on his Mac. I adore math, Jesus, Apple and π, but not apple pie!

I'm not a hardcore gamer by any rate, but I do play some games, and on the few games that I do play I try to get as close to 100% completion as possible, and sometimes I succeed. Puzzle's probably the genre that gets me the most. You can find me on Steam, where I was formerly known as The Annoying Pyro for quite a while, before I finally decided that being annoying was getting old.

My 5 most favorite games of all time (so you may see me patrolling these tags most often):

  1. The Ratchet & Clank franchise, by Insomniac Games, who are awesome.

  2. The Sonic the Hedgehog franchise. I often prefer Knuckles to Sonic though, for some reason.

  3. The reboot of the Tomb Raider franchise. Admittedly, I was never interested in Lara Croft's previous capers, but Crystal Dynamics was right: I'm really captivated by the idea of going through this brand new, character-building adventure of survival with a fellow (albeit fictitious) human being.

  4. The RollerCoaster Tycoon franchise, originally created by the talented Chris Sawyer, who is also awesome.

  5. Team Fortress 2, my favorite class being (although I main as ).

Honorary mention goes to Minesweeper, with my personal records on the Windows 7 version being:

  • Beginner: 5 seconds
  • Intermediate: 28 seconds
  • Advanced: 64 seconds

comment Will any mobs spawn in my barn?
I would personally worry more about the barn going down in flames than the possibility of mobs spawning in it. Just sayin'.

comment How can I skip the first level of Eggmanland?
@Shinrai: Pretty much. The main differences are that Eggmanland in Unleashed isn't timed and you only switch between two variations of Sonic. What's interesting is that hourglasses are involved in both Cannon's Core in SA2 and Eggmanland in Unleashed!

Do you intend to play on the same computer or different computers?

revised team-fortress-2 wiki description
remove the word "formerly" altogether - it looks misleading when viewing the unformatted tag wiki (as in /questions/tagged/team-fortress-2)

comment What types of kills are counted on Strange Flamethrowers?
With the recent introduction of Strange Parts, it should be noted that Strange Part: Projectiles Reflected does not affect a flamethrower's kill count in any way, even if you score a reflect kill.

comment What is the purpose of disguising yourself as your own team?
@OrigamiRobot: There seem to be tags for almost every class (notably Pyro, Soldier, Engineer, Spy) which have been in use for quite some time (read: months) so I figured they were kosher. I guess this is something we should clarify on meta, as I see TF2 being pretty much the only game with these tags...

@OrigamiRobot: Have we decided to stop using TF2 class-specific tags now?
