Well I lurked, then I joined. Then I lurked a little more. Now I post my introduction!
I'm a self-taught computer programmer (the reason for the thread title, as well as my user name), as well as a hobbyist self-taught graphics artist and 3D animator. I also want to help contribute to this site!
I'm a pedant about good English spelling and grammar (I hope I haven't made any blatently obvious mistakes so far), and love writing just about anything.
Hey, all! I hope I can have a good time here and make useful contributions!
