I used to compete in local powerlifting meets. Since late 2009 I have been on hiatus, but I still do powerlifting-style training. For about one month I held the USPF California Junior (up to 23 yo) deadlift record in the 198 lb class at 569 lbs. My best meet total is 1295 lbs in the 220 weight class.
I'm an avid gamer. For a time I was very into MMORPGs as the main tank and officer of my guild. Since that kind of schedule can't be maintained while getting research done, I've moved on to other games.
These days, I mostly play modern board games (think Catan, not Monopoly). You can find my collection here. I have also recently gotten interested in miniature painting.
I posted an analysis of different competitive tournaments in Starcraft II on the most popular community site. This was my first foray into Go. I wrote a simple combat parser for Rift. This was my first project in Scala.
