I used to know more than I do now. Long ago I studied the bit with the electrons floating around. I miss it. I liked signal theory a lot.

I am not so good at the lifting heavy things business.

Here is a picture of me, but I'm told it doesn't look much like me with my hair all up like that.

This one looks more like me. Me and robots I am the one who's not a robot. I help with the orb robot on my left.



I have many allergies. I get tired of typing out my current list of food allergies, so I put them here:


This is a life-threatening form of an allergic reaction. I have only had this once in my life, but I am at risk. If I collapse and turn blue, chances are I am in anaphylactic shock. I always try to carry an epipen somewhere on my person. (Jacket chest pocket or handbag or something.) Take it out, pop the cap and stab me with it in the thigh RIGHT AWAY. Although I tend to react slowly, if I'm already blue it means I'm already dying.

Amaranth Kidney beans navy beans pinto beans cabbage duck hazelnuts
malt goat's milk mushrooms peas perch rice salmon
sesame tomato vanilla black walnuts

I am also allergic to non-food things, but these (mostly) prove less of a problem. Some of the more significant things:


Cats: I have had many second-hand reactions to cats. I am so allergic, I am sometimes allergic to people who have cats, which is very unfortunate. Oh, and ferrets happen to fall in this category. I have no idea.

Mold: This crops up in odd things. Cheap cigarettes sometimes have mold. "fresh air" after a light rain is often quite full of mold. It doesn't matter if it's living or dead, it will still bother me.

Dust: Don't ask me to help clean up anything that's been sitting for longer than week or two. Vacuuming often makes this worse, even with a great filter, simply because you're stirring it up.

Other: I'm also allergic to dogs, pollens, and other random stuff, but these are either not as serious or immediate as the rest.


/etc/passwd entry

# adduser --shell /bin/bash --uid 21580 --gecos 'Christie Dudley' longobord
# awk -F: '$1=="longobord" {print}' /etc/passwd

longobord at gmail is my most direct email.
I'm also found at:

  • c.dudley at ieee org
  • christie at flaminglotus com
  • longobord at most of the popular places.

longobord on twitter, gtalk, etc.
Valkyrie` and Valkyrie`` and sometimes even Valkyrie- on irc


Still getting these sorted. Perpetually. Here are a couple of things that have been rattling around in my head:

  • Helping design and build low-cost robots out of (relatively) easily obtainable parts. Haven't named the project yet.
  • Probably something with LEDs, including acrylic light pipes. Maybe some cast resin.
    • LED fingernails
    • LED "beading" on clothing
    • LED "light" staff. Completed, but should do an instructable.
  • Wearable interfaces
  • Learning new things, like German, only that's a pretty old thing really.

I have (had?) all the parts to build a tesla coil I think I should do that someday. I also like to arrange for people to come to the space to talk about cool stuff.
