I apologize that this is the result of pure boredom.

Somehow I accidentally ran across a thread in which someone's mental picture of the webmaster was brought up (http://cboard.cprogramming.com/showthread.php?t=53897). I recieved a PM a few months ago asking for my opinion of the webmaster, for some sort of survey (the result of which I haven't seen... what was the purpose of that?)

Anyway. I thought it would be fun if we all shared what we picture the webmaster as being like. I always pictured him as this dark warlord who would occasionally drive his motorcade of wagons into the village, where his administrators (govtcheez and the like would help him off the main wagon, remove his black cape, and he would inspect the recent work of his pathetic peasants (us). Any body else?

Sean,
That's hillarious! I never thought of him as the warlord type. I guess I just thought of him as a graduate student or something like that.

he's a hobo that lives in a box with his computer hardwired to the city's power supply and an antenna that receives some oldschool wireless networking service...

Well considering he is an Ivy Leaguer, I'd imagine slacks, button up shirt with tie, and a very nice leather trench coat hiding the 3000 year old sword.

I once was browsing the net for some code and I came across some code from a guy named alexander. at the bottom of the code somewhere it said: webmaster of cprogramming.com.
I started thinking (hurts) and I thought by myself: hey I know that guy. That's how I found out his name :D

I think that was the only code I ever saw from him
And now I feel stupid for nat taking a screenshot of it
[/true story]

Oh yeah, how I picture the cprog headmaster:

Blond dreadlock, always in shorts,body coverd with hair, a beer belly, beard. A t-shirt with picture of the head of bjarne (that's also how he calls his kid). those shoes with open toes (the kind people have in deserts, I don't know the english word) And an absolutely gorgeous wife. He drives a an old red Ford and his wife a BMW Z4.

ROFL!

I picture webmaster as a dude with a goatee and mustache living in a nice house. Kinda on the medium size range on width, kinda tallish in height.

edit: I forgot to mention, brown hair

why do i have a feeling that the webmaster has a 2nd id that he uses on the forum and none of us know that it is the webmaster...

jverkoey - actually that guy looks a bit dark warlordish, wouldn't you say? And does the webmaster know you've been following him and taking pictures of him?

A recent photograph of the webmaster can be seen here (http://www.blueharvest.net/images/closeups/emperor.jpg).

This (http://www.powell-pressburger.org/Images/40_ToB/Stills33.jpg) shot was taken at the last moderator reunion, it's about 2 years old.

he is pure online spirit, he roams from computer to computer freely programming as he goes, the packets being sent right along with him so he can edit it at each stop way, one day i hope for my screen to be glowing extra bright and it to speak to me saying, ryan, your code really really sucks, and then i will have met him.
