As someone who discovered this community about a year ago, and has been following avidly since, I am rather excited to finally step up and take part.
I rather feel like a level 1 researcher in their first day. I've heard the rumors and stories everyone else has, I've seen a lot of weird and strange things. And yet I don't really know anyone here. Yet.
Personally, off-site, I'm a 28 year old male. I live in Texas, working for a Community College, doing IT work in a Library. I've grown up building computers, models, and toys. I've worked in general construction, residential electrical and plumbing. I've gone to college studying chemistry, and science in general. I read a lot (especially sci-fi), and play all manner of games (video games and pen'n'paper RPGs most often). I've made amateur studies of history (especially weapon and armor making), all manner of physical science, and engineering. I am, for all intents, a jack of many trade, master of none.
Here's to seeing if my ideas and theories pan out. Let's hope my stories, comments, and critiques don't get me killed.

And if you make a joke about 'hiring' my 'services' … your rates just doubled.
