About me

By Shamus
on Tuesday Jan 31, 2006
Filed under:


I’m Shamus Young, a 34 year old software engineer and a happily married father of 3. In my free time I tend to play videogames, watch Anime, play D&D, and write software of dubious value. I also tend to write about these things here.

I don’t have any sort of degree.

You can probably extrapolate the rest by just looking around the site. I’m a stereotypical nerd. I’m the author of this Cyberpunk novel, and was the guy behind this politcal satire site.

    You look like PC from those new Mac commercials. ^_^

    Dude, I hope to be your age and still do all these things.
    It really makes me happy seeing there are people out there still who can appreciate the finer things in life!

    keep it real !


  3. Well, Shamus, I’m right about your same age, trained as a radar electronics technician but currently working in photographic equipment sales, happily married father of 1. Obviously, with similar interests, of course.
    Nice to see I’m not the only ‘grown-up professional’ that still finds time to ‘play’.

    Hysterical and endearing.
