I wanted to provide a little background on myself, for perspective. Besides it’s my blog anyway. I recently did another MBTI (Myers-Briggs Type Indicator) to help me better understand my personality preference and why I do some things the way I do. This was not some online personality thing, it was done by a certified MBTI instructor. My personality preference is ENFP (Extraversion-Intuition-Feeling-Percieving) with this short summary:
Warmly enthusiastic and imaginative. See life as full of possibilities. Make connections between events and information very quickly, and confidently proceed based on the patterns they see. Want a lot of affirmation from others, and readily give appreciation and support. Spontaneous and flexible, often rely on their ability to improvise and their verbal fluency. http://tinyurl.com/2ed46n

I was thinking today about stuff I’d like to actually blog about, and since this is what I do for a living right now, I thought I would start with something easy. Programming. Yeah, yeah, easy for me, right? Basically, I sit in front of a computer all day and make it do my bidding. Don’t worry, I only use my powers for good (right now anyway, muahahaa!).
The project I am on and have been on for the last several years runs north of half a million lines of code across 23 projects right now and I am one of two people that actively work on it. At this point, you could go over and browse through Dilbert strips (www.dilbert.com) and probably begin to understand about 90% of what I do on a day-to-day basis. Really, I’m not lying about the Dilbert thing. Continue reading “Programming”
As of today I have acquiesced to a request from my wife. I like to write, she likes to write a lot. So, long story short, I have given her authorship abilities on my blog. Whilst I will attempt to write more on here (let’s see nothing since Nov?) she will also be astounding each and every one of you with her wily wit and charm. I am really looking forward to this collaboration with her. It’s nice because it is something we can do together and apart. I just wonder what happens if I start blogging responses to her blogs…?
Anyway, everybody welcome… thechickone (aka Elise). And if you want to email her here, the address is thechickone at danielvincent dot com (no, I will not give you a link, I get enough spam as it is).
I am not sure I should be quite this excited about finally having my website up, but I can’t help myself. I have been sitting on this domain for years with the intent of doing this one day. Well, here it is, here I am, and here I go. Hopefully as I develop this site it will provide us both with some laughs, tears and whatever else can come out of the blogosphere. My commitment to this right now is trying to write something every one to three days to start. I wouldn’t consider myself a writer by any stretch but I do like to write. I am a coder, I am a musician, I am a husband and a father, I am a gearhead and a movie junkie. As a former film student I am into movies of all kinds with sci-fi and action at the top of my list. I do work as a freelance graphic designer and web developer and will be getting some of my favorite creations up here soon enough. I invite you to join me on this journey, should be an interesting ride.
