Opposite of bio, and much more fun.

Known worldwide as shouting guy, or by ex-Sun Microsystems staff as the sexy cub of Fishworks, Brendan is the inventor of the special tools for system administrators. These include bottom (opposite of top), psss (process status with star-sign), and 3rot13 (you can probably guess).

He can write code in many advanced programming languages, including Algol 60, FORTRAN 77, logo, and GW-BASIC. In particular, he has authored the world's leading site on dtksh. He is also a contributor to the INTERCAL programming language, developing guess.i for the pit, and making commit #1 to its new location on gitlab.

He has previously worked as an VMS system administrator, where he became proficient at loading reel-to-reel data tapes, and reloading the continual paper feeds of teletypes. He types on a dvorak-layout keyboard.

He may be the only person, ever, to have been struck in the head by a grouse at over 50 mph. Both parties survived.
