My name is John Holt and I’m a software engineer and web designer in Vero Beach, Florida, and Super Blog Me is a space where I can brainstorm my ideas on WordPress development, interface design and other things I do with my life.
I like to solve problems, so computers were a natural attraction. The amount of new possibilities computers have opened up for us is staggering. I want to be part of the digital evolution, every step of the way.
Random things about me
- I was born and raised in New Hampshire. The fall foliage is beautiful. Winter slush – not so much.
- I have OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder) when it comes to problems and puzzles.
- I am not spontaneous. I am a planner. I have to-do lists.
- I prefer mountains over oceans.
- I don’t like to cook but I do like to eat.
- I have a powerful attraction to sugar that is hard to resist, especially brownies.
- I am a teetotaler. I do not drink alcohol, but I’ll force myself on special occasions.
- I’ve tried learning three foreign languages with dismal results. I remember my first lesson: ‘agricola’ means ‘farmer’ in Latin.
- I have a Masters Degree in Computer Science, but I’ve learned the most by doing.
- I own a timeshare on the Las Vegas strip I bought on eBay. I go just about every year.
- I enjoy playing video games that involve strategy, planning and problem solving.
- I’m 6 feet tall. That’s 2 meters.
- I played baseball as a kid. That’s how bored I was.
- I enjoy reading, and ditched almost my entire library of books once I bought my first e-reader.
- I’m very laid back and open-minded. I only get mad when my girlfriend tries to get me mad ‘just to see’. That’s maddening.
- I’m a big fan of Calvin & Hobbes. Who isn’t?
