About

Benjamin McGraw, Mad Genius

I've got a bit of a thing for the mad science. Goggles and gears!

I’m just this guy, you know?

So, the first place I ever had was cozy. Quaint, really. Cramped. But the heat worked and the rent was cheap.

I hermitted there for a while, got some thinking done. It’s easiest when you’re left alone, I find. Other people are hell, and the internet is other people cubed.

So, one day I decide to step outside and get some fresh air. I’d been cooped up for a good nine months or so, and I was getting a little stir crazy.

First guy I meet slaps me silly until I cry. True story. I mean, who does that?

From that moment on, I vowed to wreak my vengeance on them. On them all! Mwa ha ha. Mwahaha.

Okay, now what

I've been told by naughty girls that this picture is hot, and by nice girls that it's creepy. Double-win!

I’m a programmer-guy.

I’m actually platform agnostic: I won’t get into holy wars about any platform, but I’ll often speak up for the underdog because, you know, who wants to be a yes-man? The only language I’ve met that I’ve hated is PERL, although C++ and I are having a trial separation at the moment.

I learned how to program while attempting to make games using VERGE. That didn’t go very well for the game-making, but it did well for the learning. Somewhere along the line I became a professional webcoderman. It probably had something to do with all of the hipness and coolness associated with the webcoderman lifestyle. I mean, I get to wear bandanas and hoodies to work while making crazy Donnie Darko-like expressions!

I have a bunch of projects. That’s all I gotta say about that for now.

There’s a ninja hiding in me

No, really. He’s here. Ninjas are very clever. I’m pretty sure that all Benjamins have their own personal ninja, somewhere, deep down inside.

Ephemera

If you want to see a bunch of badges for which to cyber stalk me even easier, but which aren’t worthy of being in my main layout, go to my junk drawer.
