Apparently it's obligatory for blogs to have these things these days...
So: Me, the person who writes this blog
Name: Dominic Humphries Born: 26 February 1977 Live: West Sussex, England Past: Born in Ashford, Kent Moved to Saudi Arabia when I was 2 Moved back to Ashford when I was 5 Moved to Kent a few years later Failed my Eleven-Plus Got my 11+ condoned and went to a grammar school Left school with A-levels in Maths, Biology and Chemistry Went to a university to do Applied Biochemistry Left university with a BSc(hons) in 1999 Got a job with a pharmaceutical company Moved in with my g/f of the time After 8 years at the company, quit to try teaching Split up with g/f Met next g/f via our blogs Quit the PGCE teacher training course Split up with g/f Lacking better ideas, went on a trip round Europe Came back Realised I was suffering from depression Prescribed Prozac, refused to take it Moved near Worthing to rent a room from my best friend Got a job invigilating at the local school Finished invigilating, worked in LA as a web developer for a while Came back from LA, got a job as a programmer Got a motorbike to make the commute more bearable And so life goes on...
Well, that seems to cover a lot of the basics...
This is "geekblog" because I tried keeping 'normal' blogs before and got nowhere, so stopped trying to be normal and started to just write whatever I was interested in and to hell with whether readers liked it or not. As a result, I've been on the front page of digg and del.icio.us several times
It's "oneandoneis2" because that name came to mind when I needed a unique username once and has since stuck.
I have a deep and abiding fondness for Linux; the command line; vi; C; Firefox; kit cars. I have an equally deep and abiding hatred for any software, device or machine that tries to be helpful and do things for me.
My life goals include going back to university to do a couple more degrees; building a couple of kit cars; setting up a metalworking workshop; writing a book; learning to program; building a PC with 100% working open-source Linux drivers.
I'm 6'4". Most people are surprised to learn I can dance. People have a strange tendency to trust me even before they've met me face-to-face. I'm currently single and happy that way.
And that, I think, is enough to be going on with...
