A brief introduction

And then I'll get into my first rant.

I'm some guy who thinks about stuff. Stuff you probably don't care about but I'm going to tell you anyway! Now I don't think I'm going to cure cancer or create world peace but it'd be nice if I could make the world a little better. Stuff I'd like to talk about will focus on:

Games
I've always been a game player and am fascinated in how one designs a game. Yes it's mostly computer games these days and even then it's mostly consumed by World of Warcraft.
Shut-up you in the back! We all have our vices and I'll avoid sniggering at your hentai collection if you leave my level 80 mage alone.

Programming
Only 2 years ago I was introduced to this weird concept of Test Driven Development and the broader concept of Agile. Programming has been part of my life since I was eight. When I haven't been doing it professionally I've found myself doing it more in my free time. So it's nice that after 20+ years to suddenly learn something very new.

Internet
To me you are all young whipper-snappers that don't know a good thing when you've got it. Yes I've been lectured by people who used the internet back when you had to use computers with out screens (or whatever they called them back then). So I'm in turn going to lecture you about the time when the web was young. And why it's such a horrible mess now that fills your inbox with spam. And why I love it and would have it no other way.
