#introduction (take 2)
I'm an old dude (approaching 50!) who plays tabletop #rpg 's, watches #sci-fi & #anime, works as a #sysadmin, and uses #perl daily. I produce an audio #podcast, and still reminisce about #gopher on port 70.

This is turning out to be such a beautiful day for me.

This made me smile: Margaret Hamilton visits Mister Rogers' Neighborhood, shows kiddies that grownups like to put on costumes for play-acting, dons Wicked Witch of the West costume as demonstration. Mister Rogers notes that girls and boys like to pretend to be witches:
