So... I'm 32 years old and live in northern Sweden, where I work as a satellite engineer. Oh, and the name is Mike, both in the real and virtual world.

I've been around seen the start of FFF, drawn here by the shameless spamming Caleyna did of her new site over at Pages of Prophesy (PoP). Back then I was an innocent newbie to Internet communities in general and PoP in particular, but had already noticed what a freaky person Caly was. And I like freaky people, if you were in any doubt about that.

That was almost three years ago, but it took me another years or so to gather enough courage to venture into chat. The first experience there was one of confusion, but everyone was nice so I came back. It only took a couple of months of chatting for Caly to convince me to get ICQ, and within weeks after that she had me properly seduced.

That was March 2000 I think. In August I made my first trip to Oregon to meet Caly for real, and I had a wonderful time. After three more US visits (including the infamous Las Vegas social) she decided to come over here and enjoy the snow together with me. I'm happy (and a bit surprised) that she has survived five months of winter without becoming weirder than she was from the beginning.

What else to say? Oh, books of course! I'm the resident Deverry freak, very pleased that two new disciples have entered the ranks lately. Other favourite fantasy authors are J. K. Rowling, Robin Hobb, Robert Jordan (still!), Steven Donaldson, and above all, Ursula K. Le Guin. I also read other stuff, but right now it's lunch break, so I'll have to cut this short.

*waves to all the freaks, old and new*
