I was so glad to hear Valve started a Wiki! They're really cool.
 
I hope they get it listed in the Wikimedia project [[MetaWikiPedia:Interwiki|Interwiki]] database.
 
 
<br />
 
<br />
I created a Mycroft search plugin for the wiki which can be found [http://mycroft.mozdev.org/download.html?name=valve&submitform=Find here].<br />

Cleaning this up cause it's always getting out of date. Hi, I worked like crazy with tons of other awesome people to help get the VDC Wiki off the ground over ten years ago.
I have also created a makeshift wiki-spam detector. This is based on something that almost all spammers seem to spam the wiki with, so I hope it works/helps. It uses GreaseMonkey and can be installed [http://projects.neocodenetworks.com/gm/wspamdetect.user.js from here]. If people don't want to install GreaseMonkey I can convert this to a plugin of it's own.
 
 
 
Look! [http://www.wikimapia.org/#y=47617721&x=-122200341&z=18&l=0&m=a You can see Valve!]

== About Me ==
 
I'm primarily a programmer, and prefer PHP as my favorite language. I know C++ (and thus attempt and fail horribly [due to my excellent procrastination skills] at making HL1 and Source mods) as well as VB.net and several others. I also know (X)HTML, CSS, and other web-standards. I am also a web-standards-nazi. [[Wikipedia:Grammar nazi|[1]]] I've been working with computers since I was 8, and love to use Wikis. Some day my personal site will be one. Some day.
 
 
 
Half-Life 2 is the best game out there, no doubt. I got up at 6am (EST) on November 16th to play HL2 before I had to go to school (I really wanted to get up at 3, especially because I couldn't sleep, but didn't want to get in trouble.) I love playing HL2:DM and I think I'm pretty good at it, and I rule at my own map.
 
 
 
I love UNIX/Linux, and am forced to have a Windows machine to play Half-Life and other games on, so it's my primary machine. I have a server that runs Gentoo, and I also enjoy FreeBSD. Open source all the way.
 
 
 
There is a word for what I [[Wikipedia:Wikipedia:WikiGnome|do]]! Whee!
 
 
 
And don't forget to [http://www.spreadfirefox.com/?q=affiliates&id=109778&t=84 spread firefox!]
 
 
 
A short note to developers: I have a friend that's really ''really'' good at beta testing. He finds flaws in just about everything. If you're looking for someone good to find bugs let me know and I'll get him in touch with you.
