I’ve begun a couple files to try to store some sort of index into which languages I know and which distributions I’ve used. Here are the links.

Update (Nov 22, 2009):
Contents I’ve participated in:

These will update as more happens. For example, I’ve already learned more languages since I first posted this.

Android is everything I could possibly have hoped it would be. My Dev Phone is quite easily the best phone I have ever used in my life. More on this might come later.

In less than one month’s time, I will be married to the most wonderful girl alive. :)

Why does every day move so very slowly?

Major Changes

2nd April 2008 at 02:11:08 am 1 comment

Roughly two and a half months ago, a major shift in my life and social habits occurred.

I, Tianon, got myself a girlfriend.

She’s amazing, and I wouldn’t trade my relationship with her for anything in the world. :)

However, she is exponentially more interesting than a computer. This leads to less time spent turning yellow in front of a computer screen, and more time spent away, in the real world. A place scary, and filled with real people. Frightening just to think about.

Myers-Briggs Type Indicators

Carl Jung was a great psychologist who was good buddies with Freud.

He’s the guy who is credited with the idea of Introversion vs. Extroversion, and the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator was based off his ideas.

It was only recently that I discovered Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, and I find it extremely fascinating. (At least as much as the Color Code for personality types, if not more so!)

From Wikipedia:

Fundamental to the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator is the concept of Psychological Type.

In a similar way to left- or right- handedness, the principle is that individuals also find certain ways of thinking and acting easier than others. The MBTI endeavours to sort some of these psychological opposites into four opposite pairs, or dichotomies, with a resulting sixteen possible combinations. None of these combinations is ‘better’ or ‘worse’, however Briggs and Myers recognised that everyone has an overall combination which is most comfortable for them: in the same way as writing with the left hand is hard work for a right-hander, so people tend to find using their opposite psychological preference more difficult, even if they can become more proficient (and therefore behaviourally flexible) with practice and development.

My good friend PixelFish linked to this quiz on her livejournal, and apparently, I’ve got high probability of Asperger syndrome.

It’s interesting the difference an amount of time so small as 24 hours can make on our perspective and our moods.

One minute, I can be depressed as all get-out, but give me 24 hours, and I can be light as a feather, ready for another round. Sometimes, it doesn’t even take 24. Sometimes, it only takes an instant. Read More »
