Howdy. I’m Sm1ley.  Well, really I’m Jeff Brackett.  Sm1ley is an old gaming alias that I never quite let go of.  I’m an old fart, currently upwards of 50 years old and finding that my life these days is pretty busy. I have a wife and three kids, (though calling them kids is a bit of a misnomer), two dogs, and a completely new life.

I love to read, I am an aspiring author, I used to make knives but simply don’t have the time these days, and I practiced Jeet Kun Do and Kali (yes, I paid money to have people kick my ass three times a week – I never claimed to be very bright 🙂 ).
