AIM: dgrau311

Hello, my name is Dustin, and I am a geek ^_^

   Actually, I'm a May 2002 graduate of Southern Polytechnic State University in Marietta, GA. I'm a Bachelor of CS major with an affinity towards networking and system administration. I interned at a small company in Norcross as a consultant and one of several web developers, and as of graduation started working there full-time. My hobbies include working with computers, fish-keeping, model kits, collecting anime, partying, photography, and doing anything outdoors (mostly hiking and camping). I also love to play computer games, namely Quake 3 and Unreal Tournament. In true geek fashion, I have made a many contributions to Slashdot (also here) and Freshmeat.

   Contrary to popular belief at SPSU, it is possible to find a good woman at a technical college. I found one that means everything to me, and you can see pics of us in the photo albulms. She's was one of the few females on living on campus who was also actively involved in activities on the local network. That's why I love her so much, cuz she's a closet geek. Although she'll never admit to it. As she puts it, she's every geek's wet dream: "she plays UT, she plays well, and she has breasts". And as of 11/15/2003, she is now my wife :)

If you can find me playing UT (or some other FPS games), I play as porn star Asia Carrera, under the name CyberBitch. You can get the Asia model from FilePlanet, or learn more about Asia at her "butkickin' homepage".
