About me...

I have been hacking computers from my junior high school days. My first personal computer (of my own) was NEC's PC-9801F2, and it made me really mad (or too happy). It made me quit from junior high's brass band, only few months after it's arrival to my home:-)

Job offers are, of course, welcomed. I'm especially interested in jobs related to internetworking in the Silicon Valley area. ...only if you can beat the current deal I got.


Favorite quotes:
"The light that burns twice as bright burns half as long." (Ridley Scott, "Blade Runner")
"We reject Kings, presidents, and voting. We believe in rough consensus and running code."(Dave Clark, 1992)
"Can I have everything louder than everything else?"(Deep Purple "Live in Japan")
Favorite foods:
Everything, especially Ethnic Asian (Indian, Cambodian, Chinese... of course, Japanese)
Harry: There are two kinds of women: high maintenance and low maintenance.
Sally: Which one am I?
Harry: You're the worst kind. You're high maintenance but you think you're low maintenance.
("When Harry Met Sally")
