In real life, my name is Randy, I'm married to the wonderful and loving Kat Valentine, I recently gave up managing Enterprise Support for AWS's San Francisco customers to help drive Microsoft's open-source usage, contribution, and collaboration, focusing for now on Azure and ISVs.

Offline, I [buy|sell|collect|trade|repair|ride|enjoy] vintage motorcycles.

Around the Internet, I'm cilynx, I play with routers and in-car computing. Somewhere along the lines, I accidentally became the world's main knowledge source for the Jacobsen Sno-Burst -- a crappy little snowthrower from the 70s.

I'm an active advocate for individual liberties and I work every day to make sure the corporations and government entities I'm involved with look out for and honestly work for the benefit of the people they serve, and not the other way around.
