I've been lurking around reading SCPs for a couple months, and recently decided to join the chat and apply for membership. I'm Eric (big surprise there!); I'm 46 and live in NYC, and am wondering if I'm the oldest person on the site after reading a few of the other introductions. I originally got here via a link from tvtropes.org.
I'm a non-profit accountant, and have at various times been a systems administrator, computer repair person, tax preparer, online auctioneer, and a cheese salesman. I've been around the Internet since Biblical times (1982, when it was still the ARPAnet). I've been a BBS admin, chat mod, and event organizer over the years.
I believe people should write in proper English, even online. I despise "chat speak."
I read lots of Sci-Fi/Fantasy/Horror; with horror, I am a big HP Lovecraft fan, but realize that Lovecraftian critters do not necessarily make good SCPs, and that bad Lovecraft pastiches are, well, just bad.
I have a few SCP ideas that I will kick around now that I'm a member…
So enough about me. Hello!
