Thirteen Things random things about Mark Caldwell

1… I remember far too many useless facts for my own good but can’t remember a thing if I’m on a quiz team.
2… Being in high up places doesn’t bother me. My fear is unsteady high places I may fall off.
3… I’ve just joined the moderating team at Cornucopia3D and will mostly be looking after the python forum.
4… This year I’ve been a professional internet developer for 10 years which is a bit scary.
5… My website is called impworks because of a convoluted story that boils down to my mum calling me an imp because I was born in Lincoln, which has a famous carving of an imp in the cathedral.
6… I’m can’t wait for the DVD of Hot Fuzz comes out. I know I missed some film references. Go and see it. Ignore any bad reviews. They are just wrong.
7… The last fiction book I read was Buying Mackenzies Baby. Not my usual cup of tea but I enjoyed it.
8… I live in a street that is named after a general in an area that sounds like the name of a famous battle and I used to organise a table top wargaming show.
9… I’m working my way through all three seasons of Between the Lines on DVD. So far I’m pleased to say it doesn’t look dated.
10… My broadband was broken for two weeks. I don’t know how I lived only a dial up connection.
11… Needles don’t bother me. That doesn’t mean I have any intention of having any stuck in me for any uneccessary reasons though.
12… I’m looking at how this list is coded and I can’t help myself thinking why not use a list element. I really have been coding html for too long.
13… I can’t remember what the word for not remembering the names of things is.

I couldn't handle dial up, sometime I'm impatient with DSL. Which I were a lot more proficient with html.

Dial up scares me! My DSL was crashed for 2 days and I just wouldn't get online... :(

Happy first TT~

I'm so number 1, too. LOL Useless stuff floating in my head until I actually need it.

Thanks for coming by Raven :)

Ryan Velting Thursday, March 15th, 2007

Ha.. I certainly understand the first item, and certainly the one about coding html.

Great list! Mine is up as well. A few of my pet peeves.. More of a non-typical rant. (Non-typical for me anyways!)

Have a great day!

Yikes - how did you survive for two weeks w/o a broadband connection?

My TT list is up too - all about chickens and their place in the universe. :)
