About

I like telling people that I'm a pale nerd who spends most of her time playing computer games or trying to hook up online, but the truth is, I look quite healthy. I get outside at least once a day (yeah, it is something to write home about) and I exercise regularly. I don't do my hair or wear makeup, but I spend time shopping for clothes.

My name is Riina. I'm 35 years old and I live in Southern Finland. I'm a Christian. And I believe in a lot of things besides God. But I feel no need to discuss most issues, because equal rights shouldn't be a matter of debate. Death penalty? That I'm against. Not because all life is sacred or anything. I mean, who are we kidding? Most of those people deserve to die slow. I just think it's a step in the right direction.

Speaking of death, I keep an organ donor card in my wallet. I can even think of donating my body to science. But after they're done with me, I want to be cremated. I've seen too many zombie movies not to know better.

About this site

I made my first website, a seriously crappy Babylon 5 fan site, back in 1998. I used a WYSIWYG editor because I didn't know anything about coding. After a while, I decided to start learning, and now I make a living as a web developer.

I registered manstomper.com in 2004 (according to this name generator, my orcish name is Grak Manstomper). After a couple of years when I no longer had the time or the energy to maintain it, I decided to let it expire.

This site was re-opened in February 2009 with a brand new design. I'm no early adopter, but time came to change structure from static website to flexible CMS-driven blog. This change was in no small part inspired by Windows Vista (yes, I'm crediting Microsoft).

I re-registered manstomper.com in October 2012.

While I love taking money from people I don't know, I don't receive compensation for talking about products or services, nor is there any kind of paid advertising on this site.
