OK. It's not actually hostd by GeoCities, but it actually is my homepage. Do people even have these anymore?).
My name is Diego Carrión and I'm a Writer, Programmer, Amateur Photographer, Perpetually Amateur Guitarist, Opinionated UNIX fanatic, and I suppose a part-time hipster. However, I'm a computer programmer and server administrator by trade, and seem to find myself most at home on a computer when I'm staring at a black terminal screen.
I'm also a Latter-Day Saint Christian (yes, a Mormon) and happy to talk about my Faith to anyone with questions, as well as to learn from others. link
Recently I have become a writer for, and the basis for a character on, a webcomic drawn by my friend Stephen called "Here There Be Dragons".
I have lived in a number of places among the western United States, but I'm a greater Seattle area native and am proud to call the Pacific Northwest my home.
I often go by the handle 0x783czar (read: The Czar) online (although occationally I may use 'theCzar' or 'theTsar' if a site or server won't accept my first choice). It has been with me for some time and is rather confusing to most people. Let me start off by saying that: yes, I am aware that 0x783czar is not a valid Hexidecimal number. The numbers '783' are what I consider to be the closest numerical (or 1337) representation of the word 'the', and the 0x is there mostly for decoration. So the handle is properly read as: The Czar, although other pronouciations are acceptable. As for the origin of 'The Czar' it really just seemed like a cool handle and sort of stuck.
