Although Monte is a UNIX engineer at HotWired, he loves spending his time fixing things for (and generally whoring himself to) the Suck production managers. His boss does not know anything about this of course and he likes to keep it that way.

He spends his free time wistfully daydreaming in Regular Expressions, sipping gin, and wishing that they could do something to rid San Francisco of that obnoxious pee-smell.
