5 things you didn’t know about me

Jason Row tagged me with the now infamous "5 things you didn’t know about me" thing.

Since I've just started blogging, nobody knows anything anything about me yet. So this is much easier for me.

1) I'm a SQL Server guy. I'm both DBA and database developer in a small office. I also have to build reports (I use Reporting Services) and applications (VB.NET). I expect most of my blogging to be related to this.

2) Since I live in the world of SQL Server, I never spent any time learning web development. This is illustrated nicely by my awful looking site at http://www.ifilter.org. Furthur evidence can be found in my choice of Blogger as my soapbox. Surely I should have looked at WordPress or something. I hope to improve in this area.

3) I learned to program on one of these. I was 10 years old when I started with a


10 PRINT "HELLO WORLD"

20 GOTO 10

RUN

That is, if my memory serves me, which it often doesn't.

4) A new baby is due in our house any day now. That means the blogging, which started out very slowly, will continue to be slow.

5) I never thought of myself as a Microsoft fan, but I got tired of choosing technologies that nobody was using a couple years later. I think all the Apple switchers might find themselves in that boat. Again.

We all have to start somewhere Scott. My first blog was on BlogSpot although it was just to list all the web based games that I kept finding during my hours at the office. It didn't last all that long :)

I hope all is well with the new little one and that you can find some blogging time in between naps.

good luck with the little one! we just got one of those too.

i'm currently looking at implementing an ifilter that uses OCR to extract text from jpg/gif/png/tiff/bmp/wmf/emf et al.

the hard part is already done. but may need to ask you stuff at some point.

Small world! Hi Scott! I have nothing else useful to say -- the mark of a true LiveJournal blogger.
