A little bit about me

Just your average 35 year old computer geek, earning his keep in the computer industry, doing Unix-y type things. Once again I've been on a hiatus from e2 dealing with a whole bunch of life changes, most of which while for the best, is very stressful to say the least. Anyway, it's been a long time, and I feel like a newbie to e2 once again.

So, why my username of Endperform? Well, it's a bit of a geek joke, at least to me. You see, for the longest time I was a COBOL programmer and I thought it would be a nice little reminder of where I've been. There's a COBOL statement, END-PERFORM, which basically signified then end of a PERFORM loop. So I figured it would be fitting, seeing as my COBOL coding days were coming to an end.



Scrawlings

Here you'll find a catalog of what I've written (even the not-so-good stuff). I categorized it for your sorted reading pleasure. I'm not a professional writer by any stretch, I do this for fun and as a creative outlet. Generally I'll write about geeky things, or else I'll be daylogging. Occasionally, though, I'll enter a quest (I put Q: beside entries that are in a quest).

Daylogs:
Firefighter memories / Memory of a friend / Fatherhood thoughts / Finding love online / October 17, 2007 / Remarriage / October 22, 2007 / My first car / November 20, 2007 / November 30, 2007

Fiction:
Q: Digital Hell / Programmer Hell / Q: Killall Lusers

Tech:
unsubscribe / paper jam / client code / how many lines of code have you written? / Arch / Linux Users' Group / How to piss off your sysadmin

Non-fiction:
shopping list / Fire Prevention Week / Losing my father / Q: A Marriage made in IRC

Other:
Small but still a person

Thanks for the idea, Dimmy
