I'm another person named Alexander 也叫蒯乐赞, but if there are too many Alex/Xander/Alexanders, as there often are, I go by Lex or Leks. I live in Oakland and go to Ace Monster Toys more than Noisebridge.

I'd love to get Mandarin Corner going again but there doesn't seem to be enough interest. I'm also interested in the darkroom; I'd love to get back into printing color...keeping my eyes peeled for a developer.
