The question is this: Who are you? What are you into? What do you like and dislike? Share as much as you are comfortable with and no more. This isn't mandatory. It's just a little way of getting to know a few of your fellow members a little bit better
About YouName: Andy Morris
Hometown: Market Drayton, Shropshire, England
Relationships: 2 previous. Currently married with 2 kids. Intend to maintain that for a while
Occupation: Systems Administrator (Junior). Previously web design integration and first line support. SysAdmin is a whole new thing for me and I've got a lot to learn. Keeps things interesting.
Current goal(s): Finish The Core and start working on some of the other projects I've got floating around in my head. I want to write a book but have neither the skill or the motivation to sit down and do it. Professionally, I'd like to advance beyond a junior SysAdmin and take on some more challenging tasks. I've also put some serious thought into winning the lottery.
Politics: I'm not a politically charged person. The whole thing bores me.
Religion: None. I believe you should live your life as you see fit, not based on what some ancient storybook says (or is interpreted as saying).
Favourite ThingsFood: I've recently just taken to throwing diced chicken, bell peppers and onions into a pan and stirring in some hot sauce. If I have tortillas in I wrap that shit with salsa and sour cream, otherwise it goes in a bowl. Lush.
Hot drink: Milky coffee with two sugars. Coffee snobs would see me hang for it.
Cold drink: Coke Zero or Pepsi Max. No preference
Snacks: I much prefer savoury snacks. Can't go wrong with a big bag of Doritos and hot salsa dip.
Movies: I'm not big into movies. I like action flicks and comedy if pushed. I'll often rewatch something I enjoy than seeking out new stuff.
Videogames: Deep RPGs and classic FPS games. Loving the current surge of retro FPS titles that are coming out and I will play Doom or Duke3D any day of the week. I'm also really into anything with a branching narrative that offer choice and consequence and as such, can be replayed.
Music: I''ll listen to most genres from classical to dubstep. At the moment I'm mainly listening to indie stuff and synthwave. Artists such as The Midnight, Mystery Skulls and SIAMES.
Other: I spend most of my time during the day with my family and the evenings and night at my desk, gaming or mapping. I'm kind of one-note in that regard, but I'm happy.
Disliked/Hated ThingsFood: Fish. I really hate fish. The texture and the taste makes me sick. Tuna is OK though, for some reason.
Hot drink: Tea. Despite being English, I really do not enjoy tea at all.
Cold drink: Supermarket brand cola. Why is it so cheap? What corners are they cutting? Why does it exist?
Snacks: Liquorice or aniseed sweets. Liquorice tastes foul, aniseed is an actual assault of your taste buds.
Movies: Like I said, I'm generally not into movies at all, but I generally dislike the horror and romance genres. Predictable trash in both cases.
Videogames: Sports games. I don't see the point of sports in general. I'm also not a huge fan of strategy games, but I can happily play online, mainly for a laugh. And of course, horror again. Game with horror elements are fine, but all out horror schlock is just boring.
Music: Rap, R&B and most pop music. Just no.
Other: I'm not one for sitting and watching things, hence my aversion to movies, TV and sports. But I also don't enjoy taking part in sports. I just hate sports.
