Pragmatism in the real world

Seven Things – Tagged by Matthew

Like Matthew Weier O’Phinney, I don’t really understand these tagged memes either, however, after he said such nice things about me, I thought I’d have a go.

Seven things you may not know about me:

  • My first programming job was programming PIC microcontrollers using Forth. Forth has been one of the more confusing languages that I’ve used.
  • The first search engine I used was Gopher on a SparcStation 1 in 1991…
  • My most expensive telephone bill was for just under £1500 (3 month billing) due to playing EverQuest in the days before ADSL.
  • I have high myopia and without my glasses, I can’t focus on the same word in a book with both eyes.
  • I cannot sing in key much to my wife’s chagrin.
  • The band played Blue Moon at my wedding in honour of my stag party. I had to explain the significance of the song to my aunt…
  • My favourite wine comes from Rueda, with Rioja a close second. I like Spanish wine!

I then get to pass on the baton to:

These are the rules apparently:

  • Link your original tagger(s), and list these rules on your blog.
  • Share seven facts about yourself in the post – some random, some wierd.
  • Tag seven people at the end of your post by leaving their names and the links to their blogs.
  • Let them know they’ve been tagged by leaving a comment on their blogs and/or Twitter.

  1. I must try from Alentejo (because i like Rioja). Also try something from Douro. I´m sure you'll be surprised.


  2. Congratulations for your great blog. It is very helpful. A suggestion: the font you use is too tiny; it is difficult to read small characters; I have to use zoom to magnify the font… But the font for the PHP source is OK (but very larger). Thank you.
