Welcome!

I'm Ted Reed, a coder and sysadmin, currently working for IMVU. I dabble in a variety of things, and this site serves as a sort of vanity site for the sorts of things I dabble in.

My aim is to be somewhat educational, both in terms of letting people learn about me, and in terms of spreading around little bits of awesome I've picked up from others. (More the latter, really.)

As for basic information about me: I read, code, enjoy music, movies and TV, play video games, name my hardware according to a theme, and enjoy the use of the Oxford Comma. I also have interests in linguistics and history. The places where those two items meet is particularly fascinating to me.

I'm originally from Southern California, an area east of Los Angeles the locals refer to as the Inland Empire. I now live in Silicon Valley, and very much prefer everything about it as compared to the IE, except the housing prices.

Here are some recent blog posts:
