I do all of these things:

  • program in perl, C, C++, ruby, javascript, assembly, and java.
  • avoid php
  • use opengl/webgl to make stupid pointless stuff
  • write raytracers (see avatar)
  • wade through rails code
  • read chinese
  • play metal guitar
  • write boring mini-biographies that nobody will read, just to get a badge.

How well I do any of these things is up for debate.

Yes, the Railsback curve. I knew there was a name for it. I just forgot/couldn't hear which direction the deviation was in.
