You can find more info on my userinfo page - but this is just here to say that I'm very happy to be friended by anyone that wants to read me. I rarely post friends-only, and that only tends to be about things that mention work, so if I don't friend you back you're not actually missing much...

If you do friend me, this would be a good place to leave a comment introducing yourself, and letting me know how you found me!

Additionally, I have lots of awesome friends - if you want to make a few more then take a look at here for Dreamwidth and here for Livejournal, add a few people, and leave comment so people can add you too.

The links posts come from my page at Pinboard and are posted to DW and LJ via a web app which I wrote and runs as a daily PowerShell job on Azure. You can grab it to run yourself from here.

A note to Facebook/Twitter users who are reading this journal:
You can easily leave comments/post in polls if you log in using your FB/Twitter account. Just go to the top of the main page and click on the FB/Twitter icon.

If you have your own blog then you can log in with it using OpenID and use that identity to leave comments.

I need to know how you feel about working with computers

Yes, I know, no job is perfect, and you may well not like all of the associated stuff that goes along with it. If you like the "working with computers" bit then tick option 1, even if you don't enjoy your morning huddle.

Context is this tweet, where someone maintains that 90% of people in tech dream about getting out. Whereas I rather like working with computers, have wanted to do so since I was 12, and have no intention of ever stopping playing with them.

To clarify, as it seems to be causing confusion, by "with computers" I mean that your job is *about* computers. So if you're doing accounting, and computers are a tool you use for this, then that's not "with computers". If your job is specifically about making computers work better, differently, or otherwise specifically focussed on a computer-specific output, then that's "with computers".
