My birth name is William David Totten, I use the nickname
Bill, some of my friends call me Biell, one of my friends
calls me CN or Loser.
I was born 12 June 1975. Which makes me
years old for those too lazy to do the math. I was, therefore,
born during the Holocene Epoch. I was born in Orange County,
New York, USA where I lived until the age of
Which means that a beam of light traveled more than 1.14e17
Meters during my stay in New York. After that,
I moved to Hockessin, Delaware, USA. Currently, I reside in
Newark, Delaware, USA. It is a nice college town which used
be the home of the greatest bar on earth until it was sold to
a moron who ruined it. I would tell you
more about Delaware, but there really isn't much, I wish
there were, believe me.
I have dark brown hair and gray/blue/green eyes. I weigh approximately
165 Pounds, which is fairly light considering some Brits
carry more than that around in their
pockets. I really just look painfully average; which is sometimes
a curse and sometimes a blessing. I am like that person you pass
on the sidewalk, look directly at his face for a couple seconds,
but then cannot recreate the image accurately in your mind
when you get back to the office.
My sister thinks I am too cynical at times. I guess this is
the case; however, I know of many people who are more cynical than
me. Why not be cynical anyway, it is not like anyone is standing
over me with a silver platter and protecting me or anything.
Not that I think that everybody should be cynical --skeptical,
but not cynical. Without happy people, the world would
be rather boring. Maybe I should be happier, and
then I may be less cynical. I guess we will just have to wait
and see. ... UPDATE: Apparently, people do not think me to be
overly cynical anymore! I guess I traded in cynical for for
realist. Define realist: someone who accepts that nobody
cares the world is going to hell in a handbasket and that over time
they stopped listening and began to tune you out.
The whole thing may be that I think too much. It has been my
experience that the happiest people in our society are that
way because they do not ask themselves the hard questions and
just go on being led and following. Take, for example,
micro$heep. I do not like sheep, people should think for
themselves more and maybe then they would realize some of
the lies which are fed to them day in and day out. I mean,
hell, micro$heep follow a man named Gates, what do Gates do?
They enclose the sheep so they can not escape. This stifles
progress and is not very conducive to advancement. I prefer
to roam free and clear under the not-so-watchful and way more
innovative eyes of the large Linux kernel development team.
But I guess that the sheep only feel safe when they are safe
in side the Gates where no one can get in or out.
The obvious what do I do segment: I am a UNIX Security
Systems Administrator for a large bank. There is not much
else to tell about it. It is a pretty good job, I certainly
cannot complain too much. I get to look at that all important
side of systems administration that is way to often forgotten.
And I find it to be pretty rewarding.
As you can probably tell(if your browser supports coloring
attributes in the
<BODY> tag, you are
using a text based browser and your console colors are set
correctly, i.e.: green on black), or your browser supports
cascading style sheets, I like the colors Black, Green, and Blue.
Isn't my blue nice, If you can fit it in your color-map, or it is
dithered correctly(i.e.: you aren't using any micro$hit
currently) then it should be a deep blue with a touch of
purple; it's hex format is: #44e. [#44e]
