Seth Schroeder is fascinated by computers. As a kid, he felt extra cool when his D&D character generator was "improved" to consistently give him above average stats. As a teen, he used his HP48g calculator to plot the Mandlebrot set to the detriment of his grades. As a young adult, he cut his teeth on the little white C book from Kerninghan&Ritchie. Now he worries more about people.
