Although my passport says I'm "David McNett", most people know me as "Nugget". I'm a geek who calls Houston, Texas home. I'm a co-founding board member of distributed.net, one of the flightaware.com guys, a nuclear taco chef, and a mixture of other interests and diversions. You've managed to find my home page and herein you will discover a mixture of personal and professional trivia about me. Probably way more than you ever cared to know. I used to be firstname.lastname@example.org but moved my home page to this domain in November 2006.
I listen to most any sort of music you can think of (except country and really heavy metal). I'm a night person, I have a cynical sense of humor, and I am not very photogenic. I have a favorite beer. I find small children unnerving. I can see those "magic eye" 3D posters. I don't own very many pairs of shoes. When I'm alone I like to sing (badly and loudly). I have a terrible time getting to sleep at night. I'm often in a good mood for no apparent reason. I love movies where "nothing happens." I have a blog but not much angst. I think that many of the world's problems would be solved if everyone owned a two-seater convertible.
One of my greatest passions is international travel. It's something I try to do as often as possible and encourage everyone to explore. As Mark Twain said, "Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry and narrow-mindedness."
