My name is Stacy Brown, and I've been a Unix administrator for more than 7 years. I've been a member of DP, off and on, since 2002, although pretty steadily on since about the time of the Big Change in 2005, when we went from 2 rounds to 4. I post processed my first book in September 2005, it was "The Honorable Senator Sage-brush" and somehow got it posted at PG with help from lots of people on Jabber. I've been PPVing more than PPing since 2006, and I've been the acting PPV coordinator since January 2007.

Because of all of this, the stuff at DP that I'm most familiar with are PPing and PPVing, so if you have any questions about those, even if you don't want to post it on the forum, send it to me and I'll do my best to help you out.

Right now I'm working on this big monster: The Literary History of the English People. There are over 9000 words to spellcheck, so it could take a while. But don't let that scare you away! Most projects that I've worked on have had less than 500 (which makes 500 seem pretty easy in comparison, hmm).

Let's see, is there anything else interesting about me? I've got an orange belt in Krav Maga (the Krav Maga Worldwide organization), and that has become my preferred method of exercise. I usually train 4-5 hours each week. I used to be on a masters swim team, but I was never very fast, and we moved to another town where the swim team practices a lot earlier than I want to get up. I love reading. Mostly I read science fiction or fantasy, but I'm pretty picky about fantasy. George R. R. Martin or Steven Erikson are good, but I'm not interested in any more books about epic quests where the protagonist is a hapless nobody from nowhere surrounded by wise old people who know everything. LOTR was ok, I don't need to read any more just like it only not as good. I also read some nonfiction. I like learning about things. I'm a skeptic. I believe the Lost writers are making it up as they go along.
