JevanGray has the surname of Gray and the given name of Jevan1.
Jevan doesn't typically like writing about himself. He was once forced to create a biographical blurb for a published paper. As an initial exercise to get past writer's block he generated the following highly boastful text:
Jevan Gray is the best guy around. Don't worry about comparing yourself to him and coming up short... it happens to the best of us. If you are lucky enough to even get within eyesight of Jevan you are in for a treat. Watch as he mesmerizes us all with his awesome programming skills. Or be amazed at the incredible feats he accomplishes while rock climbing. Finally enter a place of bliss as your ears detect the beautiful sounds of his didjeridu and eerie Tuvan throat singing.
A more serious entry, focusing on his "professional" aspects, was eventually created and used for the paper:
Jevan Gray graduated from the University of California, Davis in 2000 with a B.S. in Computer Science and Engineering. He then worked for the Visualization and Graphics Research Group in the Center for Image Processing and Integrated Computing (CIPIC) while pursuing his M.S. in Computer Science. His research there focused in volume visualization. More specifically, using multiresolution meshes, view-dependent methods and multi-variate error metrics and rendering techniques to perform visualization of large multi-varitate volumetric datasets. In 2003 he earned his M.S. in Computer Science. Currently Jevan is doing freelance programming as an independent contractor.

2005-02-23 16:00:15 Jeeeeezzzz, how did you update all those pages in like, 5 seconds? Wowie! My head is spinning.... Could be Bing, though. :) —SummerSong
2005-02-25 18:28:03 I wanted to be the first person to reach 4294967295 edits, but you beat me to it. You are the better man. —CarlMcCabe
2005-02-26 16:40:10 me thinks you're being sarcastic in what you love about Davis. —AmeliaCarlson
2005-03-01 18:49:32 Hey there! No worries about the quote. I didn't know who created the Housing Guide to begin with, otherwise I definitely would have included a name! Anyway, thanks for following up. —AlphaDog
2005-03-07 11:53:53 I actually bailed on that hawk shot at the last minute.... I decided that it was so tiny, somebody else would probably want to post something better anyway. Thanks for cleaning up after me, though! —AlphaDog
2005-03-20 22:36:03 ♥ —AmeliaCarlson
2005-03-20 22:36:03 LOL... OMG. Way to take my lead with the weed links. Good Job. —MichaelGiardina
2005-06-12 23:11:46 i didnt imply that Jimboy's made me wait for the fun of it. And there was one car in the parking lot when i arrived. As I was actually there, I think I would know the situation. —AshleyOrsaba
2005-06-13 01:58:06 All I said was that there was probably a real reason why they were so slow... not just because they were being lazy or having fun making you wait. I do find your comment informative. I'm glad you posted it... I definitely want to hear if JimBoy's could be going to shit. But so far this is the one case of exceptionally slow crappy service I've heard of. In your comment you mention how slow your visit was multiple times, and in your final sentence you made it sound like a long wait would be required to get some JimBoy's. For someone who understands that there was probably some valid reason behind the extra lengthy wait, you sure stressed the issue a lot. It sounded to me like you might have been taking it personally. Since you've now clarified, I've revamped my comment including some more helpful info. —JevanGray
2005-08-12 15:00:47 You beat me to the revert on Arlington, haha. Sorry about that. :) —RussBowlus
2005-09-27 17:22:21 Yeah, caught it afterwards —RogerClark
2005-09-29 16:54:11 Thanks for the note about recovering pics! I knew there was a better way to do it, but I was too lazy to figure it out. —AlphaDog
2005-12-21 16:27:30 thanks for the help on SJA page. —MyaBrn
2005-12-22 19:29:44 looks good, it would help if i RTFM. —ArlenAbraham
2005-12-25 23:59:53 I *knew* you were going to do that. I even changed it back and forth a few times, but in the end put in the space so you wouldn't feel forgotten. That's important this Xmas season. Regards. —SteveDavison
LOL.. thanks (: While its still mostly a stylistic choice, I've been changing them to one word because it's generally considered the more modern term, and it is currently more prevalent on the daviswiki (I know you're singlehandedly trying to change that). This probably has a bit to do with the fact that the templates had originally had it as "website". Most templates still do... the two exceptions were either changed by you (Radio Station) or originally created by you (Publication). Website also appears to be the preferred term for the web at large; compare google searches for "official website" (about 70,500,000) vs. "official web site" (about 27,200,000). Anyways... Happy Holidays! —JevanGray
Yes, I too am aware of all that. I considered changing it on the Business Template way back, but didn't. The reason I went on the crusade in the beginning is simply this: Webster's Dictionary said it was wrong. When I checked "website" vs. "web site" with Google I came up with a slight preference to the single word, but not 3:1 like with "official". (What that means, I don't know.) You'll notice I have not 'reverted' or changed any of your modifications back, although I have been aware of them. I do value consistency, standards, correctness so I'm really trying to follow the highest official source (Webster); it has nothing to do with what might appeal to me personally. I'm close to throwing in the towel in this matter -that is, accepting 'website' as 'official'. —SteveDavison
2006-04-03 22:26:25 I noticed an error on the Cow Crank page you (?) created. Since I don't have your facts, you might check them. —SteveDavison
2006-04-05 22:32:00 Cool. Thanks for explaining. I appreciate it =) —EliseKane
2007-11-12 18:13:54 "didjeridu and eerie Tuvan throat singing???" wtf jevan? I never knew... lol, my mom was looking over my shoulder when I opened the page, and when she saw your pic she said "Is that for adults!?" meaning 'Is that PORN!?'
2008-09-19 22:09:03 wanna climb this weekend? —trgraglia
2009-04-02 22:07:47 Why are you debating surcharges on the CM entry? Nobody has claimed they charge extra for credit cards. It seems to be an awfully strange side topic caused by confusion. They do have a minimum requirement, which has nothing to do with surcharges other than also involving credit cards. —JabberWokky
