Hey there every peoples. My name's Ben, better known around here as It's dot com (you can also call me Dot com if you want). I'm a 29-year-old graphic designer/computer-systems manager from Texas, USA.

==About my user name==
+
-
My first experience with homestarrunner.com was, appropriately, the [[First Time Here?]] page. About fifteen seconds into the intro, Homestar utters his classic line: '''"Oh,&nbsp;right... homestarrunner.net: ''It's&nbsp;dot&nbsp;com!"'''''
+
-
 
+
-
From that instant, I was hooked. I knew this site was the place for me.
+
-
 
+
-
<small>(You may notice on the First Time page that the text appearing on the screen is misspelled "Its dot com" (without the apostrophe). I got it right for my user name and in the image on the right, because everybody knows that if you want it to be possessive, it's just "ITS," but if it's supposed to be a contraction then it's "I-T-apostrophe-S." Scalawag.)</small><br style="clear:both;"/>

I am one of the '''[[HRWiki:Administrators|administrators]]''' here. [[Special:Contributions/It's dot com|My contributions]] come in lots of shapes and sizes, but in general I:
+
-
*Patrol the [[Special:Recentchanges|recent changes]]
+
-
*Keep an eye on [[HRWiki:STUFF|STUFF]] and perform routine maintenance there
+
-
*Fight [[HRWiki:WikiTroll|vandals]]
+
-
*Perform [[HRWiki:WikiGnome|gnome]] work
+
-
*Begin new pages and encourage their development, including transcribing toons whenever I get the opportunity
+
-
*Participate in discussions important to the wiki
+
-
*Beautify formatting
+
-
*Assist those in need, especially welcoming and mentoring new members
+
-
If I can help you or if you have a comment or question, '''leave a note on my [[User_talk:It's dot com|talk page]].''' I'd love to hear from you.
+
-
 
+
-
==Favorite quotes==
+
-
Sometimes I even work the following quotes (often including the inflection) into everyday conversations.
+
-
 
+
-
*"That's just nonsense. Are you trying to make [[interview|some sense]]?"
+
-
*"Hey, Strong Bad, I'm inside your house." "Oh, [[english paper|that sucks]]."
+
-
*"[[Senor Mortgage|No probalo]]."
+
-
*"Oh, I doubt it. [[The Interview|I drove]]."
+
-
*"There's only [[Homestar vs. Other Little Girl|one planet now]]?! What happened to the rest?!"
+
-
 
+
-
==Pages and things I'm proud of==
+
-
*'''Transcribed''' (or helped transcribe) the following:
+
-
**[[secret identity]]
+
-
**[[portrait]]
+
-
**[[lady...ing]]
+
-
**DVD commentaries for emails 126&ndash;130
+
-
**[[Puppets on the Road]]
+
-
 
+
-
*'''STUFF reform'''<br/>After a ''lot'' of planning, [[HRWiki:STUFF|STUFF]] went live on June 17, 2005. It's been over four months now, and things are still going smoothly. Thanks to all who supported my design during the test stages, especially [[User:Jay|Jay]] and [[User:Tom|Tom]], who helped steer me in the right direction code-wise and with some of the implementation. See also the [[User:It's dot com/STUFF reform|original proposal]].
+
-
*'''My first page'''<br/>[[Rock Opera Context]] was the very first page I created for the Wiki. Don't think for a moment that I did the whole thing myself &mdash; it was a HUGE group effort. But I was the one who set up the page, created the link to the email [[rock opera]], established the general format, and got the ball rolling on filling in the words. As the page was shaping up, I helped fix things here and there whenever necessary. One of my favorite things about the page is that as you read each line, you can remember and enjoy the essence of all the emails in the space of only a minute.
+
-
*'''110 sbemail redirects'''<br/>We decided to create [[Strong Bad Email]] redirects like this: [[sbemail1]] &rarr; [[some kinda robot]]; [[sbemail2]] &rarr; [[homsar]]; and so on. ''I personally set up 110 in thirty minutes!'' (There were 133 emails at the time, if you wonder. And for you math majors out there, I did an average of one every 16.4 seconds. Man, I was ''flying''.)
+
-
*'''New email styles'''<br/>I didn't [[Talk:Strong_Bad_Email#New_email_format...|come up with the idea]] or make the graphic, but I had some good input once the idea was rolling. When it came time to go live with the styles, I personally converted the most emails to the new format (Jay and I each did almost exactly half, but by my count I barely edged him out). I made sure to do at least one from all three computer eras, and I think I did ''all'' the Tandys. I also did the special cases in [[the bird]], [[weird dream]], [[anything]], and [[other days]].

==Interests outside H*R==
