To tell you the truth, I am Robinton.

I have written Minecraft mods. I have gotten bits of a few of them added to the game. Yes, I inspired Minecraft's Anvil format. And 4096IDs (though I don't think it works yet, and I'm probably not the only inspiration there). And the new condensed debug screen.

You may have heard of me.

I got my username from Masterharper Robinton in Dragonriders Of Pern. Harper Hall Trilogy, to be precise. Why? If I had been born in the Middle Ages, I would have been a bard. A life of singing, telling stories, and wandering over miles and miles of terrain certainly appeals to me. As it is, I read and write stories, and occasionally attend drama. Oddly enough, my parents are Reasonable Authority Figures, and also fit about half of the positive authority / mentoring tropes.


My real name is Daniel, and I sometimes also go by Veriton.

If you see a variant of either of my usernames ending in "TheTaller", it's probably me. I have also gone by "ApolloTheTaller" at least once.

I'm a Computer Science major in college. Sophomore. Straight 'A's. No, I can't do Hollywood Hacking. Yes, I can write video games.

I was homeschooled through most of high school. My comment on the few times I took classes at public high school is "Awesome, if it weren't for what awful things some kids say." I was a bit sheltered, so take that with a half-grain of salt. My comment on being homeschooled is "Very awesome, but no school swim team, and merely 'Adequate' essay writing lessons."

Now rise and be all that you dreamed!


How well does it match the trope?
