I'm a computer and tech enthusiast with a variety of interests, from video games to fountain pens.

I take the accuracy and correctness of my contributions very seriously. If you find any problems with my posts, feel free to edit them or let me know in chat if you have any questions or comments.

I'm also one of the resident spam fighters on Super User and can catch spam others miss. If you suspect that one or more posts are spam, bring it up in the Ask a Super User Moderator chat room, and be sure to ping me—I'm around most of the time. Don't forget to flag blatant spam—it takes just six spam flags from the community to delete it.

It sounds like flagging posts as spam isn't enough; they need to be flagged specifically to your attention (and what are the odds that you haven't already found it). —fixer1234 (source)

As an aside, I'm a bit of a photo enthusiast. I shoot with Pentax eqiuipment, and you can find me on Pentax Forums.

Note that I'm not really into tabletop RPGs. I simply felt that this image suits me best.

comment Are equipment reviews from websites like kenrockwell.com and bythom.com reliable?
Also, I sense arrogance and hubris in his writing: when he mentions spherochromatism in his lens reviews (example), he refers to the general readership as "laymen" who confuse it with lateral chromatic aberration. Sure, this aberration isn't well recognized by people other than optical scientists, but it doesn't give him a license to effectively claim that he is no mere "layman".

@EvanKrall: With regard to the copyright warning, as I had conducted substantial research into IP law for a class project, I am keenly familiar with the four-factor test for fair use in the US. I am not a lawyer (so please don't take this as legal advice), but I have no reason to believe that printing a few of his articles would not be within the limits of fair use. He probably does understand copyright, but it looks like he's misrepresenting copyright law to dupe people into paying for a license that is simply not required.
