Hello, readers. My name is James, but you can call me Roguelazer. Once upon a time, I a student at Harvey Mudd College, and I originally hail from Fall River, Massachusetts. Nowadays, I work for Yelp as an infrastructure and systems developer. I’ve been pinging around the Internet for a few years, and some of you might know me from other places; e.g. Vendetta Online.
As might be sort of obvious from my posts and general style, I’m a self-professed computer nerd. I run Gentoo Linux (~amd64, if you’re interested) on my desktop, Debian Squeeze on my old laptop, and Mac OS X on my various MacBooks (for more information, check out the Computers page). I also work with various Linuxen and OS X machines at work. While I like to think of myself as an occasional advocate for open-source software, I don’t have an intrinsic problem with closed software, as is evidenced by my use of OS X. I just think that the open-source development model tends to produce a superior product.
This is at least the fourth incarnation of this website, depending on how you count the times that it’s been just a blog. I’ve finally given up on writing my own and decided to use something that somebody (not me) actually feels like putting time into. So, obligatory plug, this website is powered by WordPress. Yay!
You can generally contact me at roguelazer_AT_roguelazer@dot@com. Without the obsfucation, obviously. You can also reach me via AIM/etc. with the nickname Roguelazer. Or, if you actually know me, call me. I like talking to people now and again.
