It’s Halloween, 2012 and I felt like I should update the “About Me” section of my blog. I don’t know why, other than I was just interested in catering to my narcissism. I suppose a random selection of reading fro this website gives you an insight into who I am as a person and what my beliefs are. Though, when my wife went through my site she said that I needed a succinct analogy of what it is to be me. So here goes.
The computer that I am currently writing on, is a piece of shit HP that a friend gave to me for Christmas because he knows I’m a hardware/software geek. It was dying of graphics card failure and other such problems. I brought it back from the dead, put a version of Linux on it that I had to write a patch for that bypassed most of the higher functions of the graphics card as well as a customized kernel that used the system resources a bit differently to compensate for some hardware limitations. When was all said and done, I had a great machine running an awesome OS (Linux Mint 9) that continues to surpass my expectations. Shortly after my resurrection of said machine, the “M” key started losing it’s sensitivity and would only work if I punched the key hard. So I changed my typing style to accommodate this.
The three things you should get from the above story are;
- I make miracles happen.
- I am adaptable to work around any situation.
- When something needs to be hit harder, I hit harder.
