About

LUPINE:

The word Lupine is derived from (Canis) Lupus, which deals with Wolves.

Lupine

From a very young age, I have always been fascinated with wolves. My favorite "scary monster" as a kid was the WolfMan, my favorite pet was my dog, pictures of wolves always decorated my walls, etc. In December of 2010, my family and I got to take a trip to West Yellowstone, and there we visited the Grizzly and Wolf Discovery, where I actually got to see a pack a wolves close up: http://westyellowstonewebcams.com/WYWCGrizzlyWolfDiscoveryCenterWolves.php
I picked this word, originally, as my nick in IRC channels. I later used it for gaming (Duke Nukem, Doom, UT, World Of Padman). Eventually it became my website URL, however just "Lupine" was already taken, so I had to put "The" in front of it.

 

THE SITE:

This is my personal site used for blogging, keeping track of my movies and beer, working on my various projects and aggregating my various rss feeds.  I am currently a Systems Engineer for a Health Care organization, but I am looking to branch out into a more developer type role for a Linux and Open Source Software company.  I have worked with proprietary systems for over the past 10 years, and I really feel it's time for a change.  I brought www.thelupine.com online years ago as a way for me to document various things I deal with day in and day out.

Thanks for stopping by, and if you have any questions feel free to contact me.
