You can fill this space with idle speculation about this mysterious denizen of the Scheme comunity. Eg:
- He came into a lot of money and has no need for a formal employment, and thus dedicates all his waking hours to hacking Scheme and hanging around in #scheme
- He listens to Rock? He likes The Beatles, and some other band he went to...
- He likes classic music too.
- He is a hyper-intelligent 12 yearold protected by the FBI, CIA and former KGB.
- He suffers from chronic insomnia. He can only get a couple of hours of sleep after a particularly exhausting debate with Smerdyakov.
- Hey, the guy's a cat lover, what else matters?
- He is Dick Cheney. #scheme is his undisclosed location.
- He is Eliza v. 6.02e23 sent back from the future to save the past.
- He is an Elder God, killing time on #scheme while he waits for Azathoth and Nyarlathotep to get back with the beer and crisps.
- He is your father.
