And you can take the quiz, too.

And it is the BELIEF O MATIC after all.

I find it interesting that everyone I know that took it has the same #1. I must surround myself with some good open minded folks.
Err, so I guess I'm a quaker (thats kinda scary)

Speaking as a quaker, I've heard that before, and not just after taking the beliefnet survey. :)

*ducks*
I think you need to trade in that "er" for a "c" (I'm such a computer dork that I thought it looked weird to see a single character with double quotes -- shoot me now.)

Anything new back at the ranch?
Not really, we're just going ahead with our crazy ideas. The Queue is almost done and partitioning seems to be doing VERY well in early tests. Ben used visio to print a full db schema (ouch, that thing is huge!) He's be able to locate quite a few tables that we don't use and can probably be removed. Otherwise it's same as usual. Though you may like to know our old boss was flown down to LA to get yelled though I don't know what it was about. How are things in your new position?
Damn. It sounds like you guys are solving some long-standing problems there. It would have been nice had I been there :/

So far the new position is good. The codebase is every bit as complicated as ours, so I have a lot of learning to do. Still, it's encouraged me to go ahead finish up some modules I've been meaning to do. Right now I'm working on Sub::Signatures which will allow signature based method overloading (similar to ReasonableParams but it also allows things like sub foo($bar) and sub foo($bar, $baz) to co-exist and be called correctly.) Early tests are encouraging.
So, back in around August '01, I was working graveyard at AOL's NOC in Reston. We found this quiz, and a number of us were taking it. One guy came up Unitarian Universalism like you did, and when he mentioned it, another guy mentioned how he used to go to a UU church. Some others of us were curious, so someone yelled out "What's the UU website?" The reply that echoed across the NOC...

"UUnet!"

I think we all about died laughing after that. Yay for bad network jokes.
Sooo.... I've gotten quite a few recommendations that I should talk to you with regards to doing a wedding ;)

I am totally clueless. I want it to be about the mountains and the wilderness.

Have you done many weddings?
Well, the short answer is "yes," I've done a lot of weddings. The long answer is a bit more complicated. I've done 18 weddings, but 15 of them were same-sex sidewalk affairs when Multnomah county was handing out certificates to same-sex couples. As a result, I've only done three weddings that were involved at all.

The legal stuff works like this: you get a marriage certificate, wait the required numbers of days (usually about 3) and then get married before the certificate expires. The "official" marriage part is actually me (or someone legally authorized to do so), you and your intended spouse signing the paperwork in the company of two witness. The ceremony can be anything you want it to be. It can be a beer and pizza party for all the law cares. In fact, it's completely optional because marriage, as viewed by the state, is a type of civil contract.

So I could potentially do your wedding, but it really depends on the time and place. Also, even though this probably doesn't apply, I only know that I'm legal in Oregon. Other states or countries have their own laws and the legality of my officiating at a marriage depends upon local laws.

I hope that helps answer a few of your questions.
