So, um, I'm R. Francis Smith, the R stands for Russ and I'm okay with it, I just write my name like this because it can actually be found in searches, plus I kind of like it, even though it makes people get all awkward with how to address me. (R? Francis?) Sorry about that.
Let's see... I live in what may be the reddest state, Oklahoma, but persist in being a big ol' lefty, and in case that's not awkward enough I'm a Christian who worships with a church of pretty much all staunch conservatives. On a completely unrelated note, I'm sure, I'm also in therapy for generalized anxiety disorder and possibly OCD, and in all seriousness, WTFJHT has been a lifesaver to cling to, as I'm sure it has been for y'all. Where was I? I'm a husband and an adoptive father of two daughters from Kolkata, India, one of whom is about to turn 18 and did I mention the anxiety?
I'm a university system administrator and have been for the most part for a few decades now; I have a degree and a half in Computer Science and remain a hobby programmer in my spare time, such as it is, most of which is web-related these days because what isn't? I'm a Patreon backer (is that true of everyone here? I have no idea) and a daily reader since... day 15? Something like that. I tend to just blurt out random facts when asked to introduce myself. I read a lot of webcomics and I more or less can communicate in Esperanto.
