Abuse of Colophon

Life isn't complete without some personal opinions and controversy: My favorite languages are (in no particular order) C, Shell, and Scheme.  I use both Vim and Emacs, aggressively.  My favorite operating system is GNU.  I like proofs, and so I'm not terribly fond of dynamic typing, but I do like type inference.  Algebraic datatypes are superior to non-, but I cannot escape my love of low-level programming and the datatypes inherent with that.  No, higher-level abstractions such as those devised by Curry, Church, and Turing are not substitutes to low-level design, so don't try to sneak that into my deviance from algebraic types just now; I love them from a different perspective.  Paper is a hacker's best friend, and can help to tame the burden of mind.  Do unto others as you would have them unto you: no, I'm not religious, but please don't f@#* with my code style, or that of anyone else that treats it as an art.  I have OCD, and it will do unto you unfathomable horrors if you don't respect it.  I am a free software activist.  If you don't subscribe to the free software philosophy, I'm likely to annoy you.  And you're likely to annoy me.  But that's okay; a little bit of friction is healthy.  I like to debate and learn from and about others.  I like to understand opposing viewpoints.  And I will respect your opinions.  If we get along without any debates, then we do not have much to learn from one-another, which doesn't make for a very good relationship.  I do not believe in flame wars, or disrespect.  If I disrespect you, then I have done so unintentionally, and I apologize.  But that doesn't mean that I agree with you.  I write a lot.  Not everybody wants to invest the time reading it.  Not all of it is worth reading.  You've been reading this, so this should be evident.  I often stay up very late hacking and writing things like this, and will be tired the next day.  I therefore indulge in vast quantities of coffee.  It's unhealthy.  I sometimes fall asleep drinking coffee.  I do not believe in overtime (personally or empirically), but I do have many personal interests: take advantage of them; they're not hard to find.
