According to the MBTI, my personality is INTP. It fits pretty well.
Jumbled facts: I have a sarcastic sense of humor (it goes with MST3K). I run Gentoo Linux on my computer. I've taken an interest in photography and have a DSLR with a few lenses. I believe anything can be taken too seriously. I still have a VCR and a regular old CRT TV. I know people in Winter Park, so I do travel there occasionally. I'm still using my first cell phone, which I got about ten years ago.
On weekdays, I'm a Simulation Engineer; I'm a software developer working on improving a real-time simulator. It is intended to train operators of robots used for underwater maintenance and construction tasks.
During the weekends, I may deal with lawn care, or might have some fun with photography or electronics. I sometimes squeeze that in during the week, too. Occasionally, I take pictures of a rocket launch. Rockets so far include the Space Shuttle, Atlas V, and Falcon 9. I'm also planning on seeing and photographing the total solar eclipse on August 21, 2017.
I find it odd that the list of languages presented by Ok Cupid includes C++ and LISP but not C, Java, assembly, Python, and a host of others. LISP isn't exactly a popular programming language, so why not list the Shakespeare programming language? Seriously, it does exist.
I'm also good at sneaking up behind people without even trying. Sometimes I scare them enough to scare me! A friend once told me that if I were a ninja, he'd be dead.
Movies to laugh at: Godzilla (especially Final Wars), Plan 9 from Outer Space, anything on MST3K.
TV: Battlestar Galactica (new), MST3K, Doctor Who, Firefly, Cowboy Bebop, Monty Python
I don't watch much television. I can't take any reality TV; I'm quite satisfied with the reality of my own life. A little less realism might be nice.
Other video and pictures: The Guild, XKCD
Music: Delerium, Fluke, Hybrid, Junkie XL, Juno Reactor, James Lauer, Love Spirals Downwards, Mike Oldfield, Orbital, Paul Oakenfold, Mike Oldfield, Sasha, Tangerine Dream, The Future Sound of London, Trentemøller, Underworld, VNV Nation, Weird Al Yankovic -- I caught everything in "It's All About the Pentiums" listening to it the first time while driving back to work.
Food: All the Italian and barbecue themed stuff my father makes. I need to pay more attention to how he does it. I don't much care for junk food.
Books: They're mostly non-fiction now. I started that free downloadable self-published Firefly novel, "My Own Kind of Freedom", by Steven Burst, but I didn't finish and read Ender's Game instead. I also like science fiction short stories; have a couple of books with Isaac Asimov's stories. I've also read the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Catch-22, and I have a copy of "Space Resources and Space Settlements", a NASA publication from a 1977 study.
Roll for the Galaxy, Forbidden Island, Forbidden Desert, Pandemic, Castle Panic, Battlestar Galactica, King of Tokyo
A computer with a connection to a global network. Freedom of speech. Freedom to tinker (no iPhone for me!). A car to take me places. Games to relax with and relieve stress. The security to not have to worry about food, air, running water, electricity, etc . . .
I could do without mornings. Don't like them at all.
As an example of the fun I have with technology, I have an Atari 7800 (plays Atari 2600 games, too) hooked up to my TV by an S-Video connection (I modified the Atari), and I connect an unmodified Playstation controller to the Atari with an adapter I made because the 7800's controllers hurt my hands, but Playstation controllers don't. The adapter uses an 8-bit microcontroller from Microchip (PIC16F628); I wrote the program for it and designed the circuit. I use a custom cartridge someone else made that provides a menu of lots of games to play that are stored on a memory card.
Not really private, just trivia.
