Contact information

Leave any comments or questions for me on my talk page. You can e-mail me if you'd like, but it would be better to leave a message on my talk page — especially if I'm in the process of editing this wiki — since that way I'll get a notice the next time I visit a page or preview an edit.

Wiki experience

I first became a wiki editor on Wikipedia (the English version) back in December 2002 (see also my user page over there). Since then I've spent much of my time online editing wikis, so I know a bit about them. (Still, I don't consider myself an expert, by any means.) Feel free to ask me about any wiki-related issues and I should have some idea of where to find the answer even if I don't know it myself. (Speaking of which, the Help pages at Wikipedia and Wikimedia's Meta-Wiki Help pages are a great source of information for wiki readers and editors of all ability levels; both sites are based on the same MediaWiki software as this wiki.)

Other interests and abilities

I have a B.S. in Mathematics and M.S. in Statistics (actually, an ABD in the latter).

For the past year or so, I've been running Gentoo Linux on an AMD Sempron 2500 system. I used to program a bit — in BASIC on an Atari 1200 XL computer in the olden days, then in Perl on a Windows 95 machine — but I don't really program at all anymore, unfortunately.

By the way, if you know another dcljr online, it's probably me. I own a sizable website and admin a mailing list.

I spend most of my free (offline) time watching TV and DVDs. I also enjoy reading nonfiction, although I don't usually find as much time to do so as I'd like.

Contributions

Consistent with Iron Chariot's copyright policy, I agree to license all of my text and image contributions to this wiki under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 2.5 license.

In case this information is ever relevant: most of my contributions will be made from home using Firefox 2.0 in Gentoo Linux. Sometimes edits made during the day (U.S. Central Time) are being done at work (I often have a lot of downtime), in which case I'll be using Internet Explorer 5.0 in Windows 2000 Pro.
