I'm Sleeping

I just noticed something funny/strange.

Doing a little Facebook scan and noticed a few people use a photo of themselves sleeping, as their profile picture.

Could it be that a picture of yourself sleep is a truer representation of yourself to the internet, that one of that night when you were dressed to kill, and thought you'd take a quick pic of yourself in the toilet mirror of some club before you pulled, or got so drunk you dont really remember the rest.

Welcome to Reuben In RL

Hi hi

This is my RL blog.  I have two other blogs, but I dont use them much.  Their content is a little boring, and off beat.  They're really only of interest to me, and a few close friends.. and even then, its just me that reads them.

So I've decided to start a new blog that has real life (RL) stuff.  Well, as RL as I'm comfortable with sharing.  I'm a bit of a private person, dispite what you may find by doing a Google on me.

RL for me currently consists of (and in no particular order) work, play, private and family time.

I'm a software developer and have been getting paid for it for about 14 years.  Though I've been tooling around with computers since first getting my hands on a Sinclair ZX Spectrum (48K) when I was 8.  These days I mainly use PHP, HTML and CSS in my work.  My previous work history has had me working with Progress 4GL, C and Java, with usual encounters of other languages such as Perl, Python and various shells.  There's the usual Uni days stuff as well, like Modula-2, Prolog, Pascal, Scheme and Smalltalk but the list could go on and on.  I'm trying to get into Ruby, but there's this other thing that takes up alot of my time.

World of Warcraft.

I'll try not to cover WoW stuff here.  Thats why I have Pathak/Malygos, one of my other blogs.  I use that to track progression and general ramblings about WoW and my toons.  Generally, its a post once a month about how my 10 or so toons are progressing with their trek to lvl80.  I've never been a big raider, though I was fortunate to run regular Karazhans for a while.  These days, I'm strictly casual and only do heroics.  I have lofty goals of getting all 10 of my toons on Malygos to 80, and getting them all epic flying mounts.  So far I'm 3/10 for the lvl 80 thing, and 4/10 for the mounts.  At least I'm 8/10 for toons > 70, so thats a small comfort for the moment.

Well, RL being RL, I'm ducking off to cook the chops for dinner.  I'll be back in a day, or a week, or a month to cover other topics.
